I smile and wave at the girl I like whenever we see each other before our 5th period class. She'll smile and wave back. I actually do engage in conversations with her about once a week. Today after lunch I was kind of starring at her (she sits 3 tables over) as the ending bell rang. I think she caught me, but she smiled and waved at me. She's never waved at me before without me waving first, so I was caught off guard, and she turned away before I could wave back.
Why did she wave? Did she probably catch me starring? Am I totally overreacting to an insignificant gesture? What should I do about not waving back? Is it weird that her waving and smiling at me made my day the bast day I've ever had in my entire life?

Just keep talking to her and see where it goes. Her initiating acknowledgement of you first this time is a good sign, especially since it was a positive gesture. She might have noticed you looking at her, but I think you're just in shock, haha. Tell her next time you see her that you DID see her wave after lunch and wanted to say hello, but didn't have time because you both needed to get to class. That way you acknowledge her greeting, and show her at the same time that you do want to continue contact with her, without saying so.0
