I asked "Is that still in theaters?" and she says "Yeah, I think so," and I say "We should go and see that together sometime," to which she responds with "Yeah, if I'm not baby-sitting all the time."
So that's the part of the conversation where I tried asking her out, and essentially got rejected. But what confuses me is how smoothly the conversation was still going after that. Neither her tone nor her demeanor changed AT ALL, which makes me wonder if she even caught on that I asked her on a date. Or if she did, then was that a "that-kind-of-date-just -doesn't-work-because-I'm-too-busy-with-these-kids no" or a "trying-not-to-make-this-weird no?"
It clearly didn't bother her at all because we were still talking during my breaks all day
I'm going to ask her out again (in a more obvious way) at some point, but I just can't get over how low-key of an exchange that was. Sothis is my question for you all: do you think that date invitation went over her head or was it just a low-key rejection? If you think she WAS aware, do you think there's merit in me asking her out again?
