Quick backstory. A new girl started working at my job a few weeks back. I introduced my self and talked to her every so often. Wasn't until a couple a days ago I decided I'd tried to pick her up cause she's sexy. Anyway, I got her number and invited her out for coffee. I got her number last Thursday, and we were suppose to meet yesterday (Monday) for coffee. She couldn't make it because she had to pick up her brother from school. Her text:
Her: Hey I need to reschedule I have to pick my brother up from school again
I called her after this to reschedule. We were talking for like a minute then my phone cut off so I didn't get to reschedule. When my phone cut off she sent me this text:
Her: I don't know what happened lol
Me: lol my phone prolly cut off, it tends to do that. I'll call you in 10 minutes when I have more bars.
She didn't respond to that text or pick up the call. So I waited out yesterday and planned on rescheduling today when I saw her in person.
Today happens. She walks past me in the morning and says hi. I say hi and we talk for like 10 minutes. It's in front of all my co-workers (I work at a school), so I didn't try to really Kino (except for hi fives and when I was leaving I placed my hand on her shoulder to say bye). I told her we'll meet up today at 6:07 pm. She said she should be free but she'll let me know. This was like 5 minutes into the convo. I didn't want to rely on her contacting me so when I was leaving, I told her that I'd text her and that we'd link up later tonight. She said cool.
Anyway, so I texted her at 4:28 this:
Me: Hey twin 1.. Be ready to relax and chill out for a little bit. I'll meet you at the Starbucks on 59 and 127th at 7:03 pm sharp.
Her: Hey Lonnie I'm not going to be able to make it. Sorry I just don't think it's a good idea. I rather leave our relationship at a coworker level. Hopefully you understand.
I got rejected. I don't care, it happens all the time. I've never been in this particular situation though when a girl texts me about not moving the relationship forward.
I was thinking about flipping it. I never said anything about a relationship. This is just her thinking forward. I would say something like:
Me: Oh I may have given you the wrong impression. I wasn't looking for a relationship. I'm just looking to meet new people and to have fun. You seemed like you'd be a fun person to hang out with, that's all.
Any help on how to respond before I respond would be much appreciated fellas. I know I've seen a few topics around here before on how to handle this type of situation, but I can't find any.
