Ok so, back in April, I went out on my first date ever. We go to the same school, but she's in the year above me. We knew each other for around 6 months prior to April, through a whatsapp group that we were both on, but we only truly started speaking a lot at the beginning of April. She started going out of her way to come and give me hugs and well, I started falling for her. I soon worked up the courage to ask her out, and of course she said yes (she seemed into me before I was into her)
Now fast forward to the date: things went really well... Here's the chat between us after the date:
Me: I'm gonna be super honest with u, yes, it is super early, but I'm gonna say it anyway... I just get that special feeling when I'm around u... Can't explain it.
Her: Aww, I'm super touched rn. You are a super amazing guy. I genuinely feel it too.
However, the next day she seemed off with me, but I didn't wanna raise it with her. Then when we saw each other again at school, things just were flat out awkward. Like her and I literally couldn't look at each other and well, we haven't spoken to each other since.
Fast forward to four days ago though, she had a somewhat depressing status on whatsapp, so I messaged her to make sure she was ok. We then started talking about what happened in April. In the message she said "You really are a great guy. I've been hurt like a million and five times, so I guess when you told me those stuff I got a little overwhelmed. Sorry if I hurt you or made thing awkward" The convo ended soon after and we haven't spoken since.
What do I do? My plan is just waiting till our school opens again, which will be on the 1st of October. I then just go up to her and give her a huge hug (I've been told I'm a good hugger) and try to take things from there. However, I truly am open to other suggestions. Like I understand that I might be waiting too long.
