I've been doing a decent job texting this girl. Not sounding needy, being cocky funny. The day I text her to ask her out for a few drinks, she seemed very dull(lacking laughter, !, and emoticons). Anyways, she responded with the following after I asked her to meet up with me.
Her: I'd say yes, but I have a welcome home dinner for a cousin. Just got home from Afghan.
Me: That's cool. <<<< I royally farked up here, b/c I wanted to add. "I understand". It was too late, b/c she responded with...
Her: Some other time.
I didn't respond after that and the AFC inside of me felt like an ass. Anyways. move on or should I still pursue this?
If you guys need more context, then I'll be more than happy to PM. For some reason, I'm paranoid about this being googled.
I just want to learn from my mistakes.
