I met a chick in NYC over a year ago right before moving. We exchanged numbers, and texted/talked for months and months. The connection was good, we enjoyed talking to each other, and in the last few months leading up to my return, we started talking more serious (idiotically, in retrospect) talking about marriage, etc. Not in a big serious way, but in a fun kind of way. I REALLY liked this girl.
We meet again in NYC, go on a date, and she goes cold on me afterward. I pressed her a bit too much in the aftermath of the date (I was insecure about my weight gain), and she dropped off the radar.
I waited until she was back from her trip (over a month) before contacting her again. That's when she, rather brutally, tells me "I have a boyfriend " with a smiley for added evilness. Then she talks about how we were never in a real relationship, yada yada, we "didn't work out"... it stings.
She goes on an overseas trip, and apparently meets a guy in her field (she's a scientist), and they're "dating" now I guess. Despite the fact that he's in Italy and she's in the states. I saw her change her relationship from "single" to "ask". I thought I was over this b*tch, but when I saw that it was like another punch to my gut. I really really liked her. Maybe I let it get too out of hand in my head. I think It was way more serious for me than it was for her. I think she was using me for entertainment when she was bored.
How do I move on? Rejection f*cking sucks, especially when she goes for another guy. Not good for my self-esteem.
