…but here I am effectively getting “pocket-vetoed.” Great.
There was this young woman in my discussion section for biology who I found particularly attractive. Not only that, she’s majoring in Anthropology, as am I, and is taking premed classes as well.
After a series of positive interactions, I asked her out for last Friday night.
She told me she’d like to, but would have to check and see if she would be free and told me to email her later. I wasn’t going to until the next day, but I figured she wouldn’t be obligated to respond until she got her schedule straightened out. Taking that into consideration, I emailed her that night. It took 24 hours for a response.
“No big deal,” I thought. “She probably just doesn’t check her email often.” She said she had to go to a photography exhibit of a friend of hers. Disregarding my propensity (and impulse) to be paranoid about the whole thing, I figured it was legit anyway.
She suggested we do something this week. So I responded to her email saying it was all ok and asking her if she likes Thai food, since the restaurants around campus are pretty nice establishments.
That was Thursday. Am I right to be losing hope and gaining in frustration? Should I have seen it as the case that her “email me and see” line was, in fact, a line?
I don’t know this lady very well, and I don’t have a great deal invested in this, but it’s still pretty irksome either way.
I mean, shit.
