So I messaged a girl I knew 6 years ago from high school on Friday night and told her she looked gorgeous as a compliment and asked her how life was treating her just to catch up and see where it goes. She responded nicely and asked how I have been, so I told her I just started a new job and she proceeded to ask where at. I tell her and ask her what kind of work she is doing now in the new city she just moved to. This last message i sent was rather late at night and I did not get a response so i figured she just went to bed. No big deal. But now it's been two days later and She has yet to reply and Facebook shows she has seen the message. It looks like she has been back to her college town this weekend to visit friends, but that can't be why she hasn't responded by now.
So girls could i get a little help here. It looks like she is single so what could have possibly gone wrong? Should I send her a follow up message? Again her responses seemed very nice and open when she did respond.

She's the only one who can actually answer your question. We can only guess.
-Perhaps she had nothing to day
-Perhaps the conversation was too boring
-Perhaps she didn't feel like talking
-Perhaps she isn't interested in you enough to talk to you
-Perhaps she got distracted and forgot to message you back.
in my opinion Facebook is the WORST avenue to talk to people on. The reasons I talk to people and stop responding is usually because I'm simply being friendly, and I don't feel obligated to keep the conversation going, especially if its boring.
For example one of my best friends ex's messaged me not too long ago. She dated him for years and I thought it was odd that he was talking to me as we were never close. I figured he was talking to me to fish for info about my Best friend. He starts off with small chat, as you're doing, and then he just kept going. It made me uncomfortable and I simply stopped answering. in my opinion there was no reason for him to talk to me. Especially once he started complimenting my looks.
For some people after x amount of years have passed and there has been no contact with a person, they aren't interested in rekindling the acquaintanceship or friendship.1
