Backstory: I've been dating this girl that I really like for a month, and things have been great. We're both students at the same university, but in different courses. As I said things have been great, right up untill yesterday (saturday) when we met at a party. I felt like she was avoiding me, and when I got to talk to her everything was incredibly weird, which it usually isn't. We were both quite intoxicated at that point, so I left it at that, and ended up leaving the party. When I messaged her today this is how the conversation went:
I don't know why things went the way they did yesterday, because that's not the way I'm used to talking to you at all. If I've done something to upset you I'd really like to know where I messed up, because how things were yesterday was not how we left things after we went to the beach on Tuesday. I hope you had a good night overall and got home safe
Its all a bit blurry tbh. You haven't done anything to upset me, I think I just need some space to sort myself out
I don't get what made you change your mind about me so quickly as I thought we were in a good place, right up untill yesterday.. Just to be clear, by "I need some space" you mean "don't contact me anymore"?
Its not you, I really haven't been with anyone in a very long time and it just seems a bit intense at the moment. I'm not asking you not to contact me I just need a little time right now if thats ok?
I haven't been with anyone either in a long time, and I'm sorry if I've come on too strong. Of course it's okay, I'll keep my distance for a while. Just know that I'm a Sarah-fan
Thanks :) I appreciate it
We're both involved in fairly busy courses, and exams are in 2 weeks. She is normally quite stressed about all the work she has to get done, so the fact that exams are approaching might contribute to this situation. In a month we're parting ways as we both are overseas students and are going home for holidays. This means that we won't see each other for 3,5 months.
What do you think? Has she just suddenly lost all interest in me, is she affected by all the stress she's currently under, or is she afraid of getting feelings for me and/or committing?
