There's a girl whom you never see in real life unless you two arrange a hangout. In a text conversation, you opened up you wanted to be more than simply her "friend" and she replied she sees you as a friend. Should you push it and ask for a hangout to discuss the situation, or should you let it go since she's already said what she has to say?
Thanks for the input people. I'll still try to arrange a hang out, but i'm close to accepting the sad fact.
I sometimes use friend as a de facto for people I like but have no other term for. I am now holding back in using it is I am vaguely interested to not send the wrong signals. Even though is is a good default word.
I think it is meaningless or meaningful depending on the person
I was in the same boat kinda. After a falling out, she reached out to me 2-3 months later and said "we're friends". No way in hell we were, friends dont go missing for 2-3 months, especially not after the falling out we had. Nonetheless, I wasted 8 months chasing her, only to get blocked in the end. Take it from me, stop dealing with her right now because you'll only end up hurting yourself.
Same question back to you. When you ask a guy where you stand and he says 'we're friends' and you thought it might have been more. You're in the same boat as me. I think she just sees you as a friend. If she's not making the effort to be more, then she's being pretty clear.
I was your age when something similar happened to me. I'll give you the advice I wish I'd taken. Don't speak to her again. Move on and don't make her a part of your life going forward. Learn from the situation but look ahead.
