So one day I tell her I want to hang out during lunch. She agrees, but to make my intentions clear, I used the word girlfriend. I don't remember the exact sentence. Anyhow, I revealed my true colors. She retorts that she isn't looking for a boyfriend, and that she's sorry for leading me on. I say not to worry about it since I was the one getting ideas out of nowhere, although I still want to take her to some place to eat because I still enjoy her company. She smiled and said she would like that.
That was the last conversation we ever had. Fast forward 3 years, about to take on my senior year of college. She goes to a different uni, but it's only a 20 minute drive away. It was her birthday yesterday, so I decided to bring back the dead with these messages on facebook:
"Happy Birthday [Name]
Oh wow why is that cringey message still there (there was only one message about a history project that went unanswered)
I know it's been a while, but I told you I wanted to take you out for dinner at some point. It's something I said I would do, so if you would like to indulge in my cringeyness again, I can take you to a trendy restaurant so we can eat overpriced food."
That was at 1:30 pm yesterday. It's 2 am now and so far her reply is radio silence. She got online as soon as I started messaging her so I know she saw it. She could be passed out drunk since it was her 21st birthday. Anyways, I can't think of what to say other than just straight up going "p-pls respond". What are your thoughts on this?
