I've had a crush on this girl for a while now. We've never really talked in person much, as there have been very few opportunities, but we talked a good bit on facebook last semester.
Her birthday was last week, and upon the urging of a female friend, I sent her flowers. After a couple of facebook messages she gave me her number without even asking for it. So the next day I started texting her. It was going pretty good at first. But I was having trouble coming up with stuff to say. It wasn't super natural or flirty, although we did make vague unofficial plans for sometime after spring break.
A couple nights ago she had a show on that she watches, so I told her I'd let her watch the show, but to text me later if she wanted to. Her response was "ok will do. talk to you later." But she never did. And I decided to give it a couple of days to text back because I wasn't sure what that meant. Most people have told me I'm an idiot, and that she has just been waiting for me to text her this whole time. I hope that's true, but I don't get why she would say she'd text me back and expect me to think anything other than she's not interested.
Either way, I'm going to try texting her again tomorrow. But I'm really not sure where I should go with the conversation. Should I be more direct with my intentions? Or just try to force more flirtyness? Or should I just keep up the same casual talk that we've been having? I really feel like it's not getting me anywhere, and it kind of stresses me out to be honest. Anyway, any advice would be great.
