I never recieved a reply eventhough she 'saw' the message.
Now I had no intentions to ask her out this way. I normally do it face-face and get a phone number while at it. This girl had been throwing herself at me for a week. I actually quite liked her. Then my friends caught wiff of it and egged me on after some liquid courage.
Now I am in a conundrum. I feel the no reply was to let me know she was not actually interested. But I did ask her out and we are part of a large extended social circle so then am I suppose to ask her out due to the fact I will still see her and I don't want to come across as a jerk?
- Yep, she only entertained the thought to be nice
- No, take a punt, shoot her a message after exams

No reply is a reply. Only time I will ignore a guy's messages is if I am not interested and don't want to talk to him. I can't think of a time where a guy that I wanted to see more of messaged me, and I read and didn't reply.

You won't come across as a jerk. Just give her some space, and perhaps she'll respond soon. When you see her out and about, just be friendly and either jokingly say "what's up elusive?" or something to that line, but don't let her think her non-response bothered you at all or she'll be turned off.
If you can, let it go and in public, shrug it off like it's no big deal. I did the same thing with a girl in my JuJitsu class, and just accepted the fact she wasn't interested in me beyond just being friendly and cordial. She then started dating someone else not long after, but I never acted like it bothered me, since there was no point in it. I just let it go. It's happened a couple more times since then as well, and you just have to accept that everyone is that into us.
Trust me, give her space and one text is enough. At this point, it's too early to tell what she's thinking, so don't try and think for her. Also, maybe look around for someone else to connect with and maybe go on a date with, since this girl is apparently too busy to reply to your text.
You'll be fine, but you'll be better off backing off and letting it go. I'm tempted to think she might even approach you and apologize for not texting, or may call/text you out of the blue. Just make sure you let her be the next one to contact you, and if she doesn't, you'll survive. :-)
