After school a few days ago I was studying in the media center and noticed this girl kept glancing over at me. I went over to talk to her and we talked for about 5 minutes before her ride came. I said maybe we could text, and she eagerly put her phone # into my phone. She seemed to really like me. The whole time she couldn't really look at me and kept smiling like something was funny. She didn't seem like that when she was with her friend before...
I texted her later in the day to check in and see how she's doing. But she didn't text back until 24 hrs later. But she was like "sorry I didn't text back". I replied to her yesterday morning and currently haven't heard from her since. I get the feeling maybe she doesn't text that much. So I was thinking that maybe I should call her? Should I text and ask to call her since we were originally going to text, or just call her? I want to let her know I really like her and want to get to know her better but not seem clingy or needy. Maybe ask her if she would want to hang out at lunch or something when we get back to school? But it might not be for a while, because of the blizzard we got 40 inches of snow. Any suggestions?

Nope, she seems as if she's trying to keep you interested. She's trying to play the game.
If I'm a girl and I see a cute guy, I give him my number (my correct number). It means I'm into him. He says he's going to text me... and I would leave my phone at home? Yeah, I don't think so.
Call her up and call her out on it. Wait until she texts you back and say something like "hey, you don't seem to be into the whole texting thing much so I figured I'd just call you up and see if you wanted to grab some coffee before your next class?" etc.
First of all, she's not going to expect this. She'll agree and then be pleased that you took the initiative. Secondly, by telling her than you noticed she took forever to text will do one of two things. If she actually isn't big on texting, she'll feel happy that you "get" her. But if she was actually playing games, you're pretty much letting her know that you're not going to put up with that stuff. She'll be embarassed and start taking it easy.
Just play it cool when you call her and act like it's no biggie. Don't act too interested or go out of your way to show that you're into her. Calling her up and asking her out has already done that. What you need is for her to come out of her comfort zone and show that she's willing to put herself out there too. She can take a little but she needs to give a little too.
