So guys, give me a little advice here so I don't blow this one over the wrong text, as I've done in the past. Its a little long but thanks for reading! The background is that I met this attractive/smart/awesome girl about 2 weeks ago and picked up her number. She texted me the same night with a "It was nice to meet you " obviously showing interest. A day or two later I texted her to set up a date for mid-week (last week), and we set up a time and place for some casual drinks. Went on the date, everything went awesome. Kept it real casual for the first date in this case though (just a nice hug or two, some light verbal flirting), as this is an actual girl I would want to date and didn't want to try to push it too fast. End of the date she jumped up gave me a huge hug, and said ďso Iíll see you again soon?Ē again showing continued interest. I texted her the same night saying ďI like you, you seem fun. We should definitely get together again next weekĒ and she responded back ďyea for sure!Ē.
I let her be for a few days over the weekend as I was camping with friends and she was busy with hers, but texted her the following Monday about getting together again this week. Hereís the text string.
Me: So what you got going on this week? I was thinking walk around Summerfest for a bit one of the nights, like maybe Wednesday
Her: I was going to say that is the only night I might be able to after work.. It kind of depends on how much I need to unpack and homework I have (she just moved over the weekend)
M: Ok, yea it would be fun. Thereís a little shuttle from my house that works awesome to get there and Iíve got free tix left
H: Ok well can we play it by ear? I donít want to say I can and then have to cancel if it doesnít work :/
M: Yea for sure, Iíll go either way. Itís just a matter of with you, or other people..
H: Haha ok sounds good!
M But congratsÖ since I asked you, your my first pick this time..
H: Haha well thanks J
H: Hey so a couple of my friends wanted me to go to summerfest tomorrow with them too, is that alright if we go and then maybe meet up with them later? I should be able to go because I got a lot of stuff done today
M: Hey, oh ok sweet. Yea thatís cool should be fun
H: Ok cool I work until 7 so where should I meet you?
M: Want to just park over by my house and we can walk up to that shuttle?
H: Sure sounds good! Ill text you tomorrow when Iím at work
H: So Iím really sorry to do this and I didnít want to but I canít go tonight anymore I have so much studying to do and I already know that I wonít be able to do much this weekend :/ maybe we can try and meet up next week? It should be a little less hectic then
I have yet to respond. I know a lot of people may say ďdonít text backĒ but I kind of feel like a Jerk. But at the same time I donít want to go super wussy. Suggestions on a response?
