3 unanswered texts over 2 week period; time to move on?

Cant understand how this happened...everything was going fine (slow but fine-just texting and meeting up with mutual friends) then all of a sudden nothing. Do all women just ignore guys they don't like just to get rid of them? can't believe this shy girl that I thought was really cool could turn around and behave like this? Any thoughts?
Updates:
Thanks for all the answers, fair enough if she didn't see it going anywhere, but why would any girl think it acceptable to just stop contact with someone like a 5 year old. Surely she couldve just text back and said something like, look, I don't see this working out etc...We are both in the same college class and have a good few mutual friends so it's not like we will never see each other again. Now she has made things awkward for everyone around us the next time the group meets up.
After contacting a mutual friend to know if she had been talking to the girl I like, got no reply from the friend, then boom text from the girl I like today saying sorry she had been busy, hoped I was enjoying summer and the talk to you soon :) yada yada...sounds like I'm wasting my time here I think. Feel so stupid, have wasted months trying to get her! :/ oh well

  • honestly a lot of girls don't text back explaining they are not interested anymore etc etc because so many guys DONT LISTEN. they hear what they want to. or if she says nah I'm busy, or don't really like you they interpret it as oh she is playing hard to get..or ill try again next week maybe she will change her mind. so honestly sometimes girls learn that jsut to ignore is the easiest way. because in a lot of guys mind they seem to think if she replies she must be interested in some way because guys seem to only reply to girls when they are interested or want something from her so they think it works the same way.

    the reason for her sudden lack of interest could actually be a number of things. quite possibly she could have already been seeing someone and was using you as a distraction or temporary rebound. however when the guy she really liked was interested or got back with an ex she no longer needed you or simply lost interest in you all together because her infatution or love for this other person over powdered it. when someone really likes/ loves another person basically nothing you say or do will change that.

  • Sometimes people don't have the courage to tell the truth about "how the relationship is going"...i'[ve been dumped like this before when I was younger & man it was hurtful! I had to "eventually figure it out that we weren't together anymore")...it's the cowards way out I think. Unless you suspect she may have lost her phone, had it stolen, (but do you have another way that she could contact you like face time or email)? Try not to let this get you too down & yes, move on!

  • she probably knows you like her more as a friend and she doesn't feel the same way shy girls are scared to reject a guy because they don't like them so they just ignore them.

What Guys Said 2

  • A ton of women do tend to just break of contact with a guy instead of rejecting him, especially shy ones. Shy girls can be extremely hard to figure out, so don't worry about it too much. And in the future, make sure you let her know you're interested in her, and try inviting her out without any other mutual friends.

    • break off contact*

    • Show All
    • lol I know, I can't count how many times I've been in your position. Like I said, I've found the best way to avoid it, is to make it fairly obvious that you're attracted to her. Don't act desperate, but tell her you think she's cute or something. You'll be able to tell if she's interested or not by the way she acts, and you won't have to deal with this kind of nonsense.

    • Well if you were being too friendly with her, she might not be sure if you were really interested in her or not. From her point of view, it would be a million times more awkward if she said "this isn't going to work out" and you didn't even like her like that in the first place. No offense, but the fact that you are making such a big deal out of this tells me you're not talking to enough girls, so get out there, find a girl that is 10x better than her, and make her regret passing you over.

  • Same thing happened to me. I've been talking to this girl and up till the Sunday before memorial day we were talking everyday then she told me we would talk more after memorial day but we haven't talked at all since. I texted her everyday since then. Its been three weeks now. So I'm thinking its time to move on
