okay now, wait up a second about the text message responce. I don’t know quickly these things get answered and put online… but is this girl in college??
‘Cause then she, like many people, may have turner her phone to silent for long swaths of time for class/homework. Anyways, most adults don’t really bother getting all giggly lemme-check-my-phone-every-10-seconds-to-see-to-he-texted, over a guy we’re just getting to know.
This chick probably has other stuff she’s doing right now. When I text with the guys I like-like it sometimes takes me a while to respond to them, because damnit I have a lot of other stuff that’s on my mind, and I might not always hear my phone. THEN there’s work! I’m not allowed to have my phone on me while I’m at my job, and maybe this chick has the same deal, so there’s another chunk of time where we’re not able to answer immediately. I don’t think it’s fair to assume that everyone ALL THE TIME will ALWAYS see the texts they get IMMEDIATELY, and then have the time to respond to them. HOWEVER, I don’t want to chain you into the friend zone. Try and look really hard into the texts she sent, they really do actually contain a lot of social cues. Girls are usually pretty good at telling if a guy likes them. Do her texts include questions or any sort of reason for you to respond back, or do you feel like, with every text she sends, it’s the end of the conversation? I do very much agree with last paragraph in the response. Does she make prolonged eye contact with you? That’s always a pretty sure sign she likes you. If you have a hard time telling if she’s giving you special attention, maybe (subtly) choose a random guy in the group and see how she interacts with him. Good luck.
But really really, if you find out that she probably doesn’t like you, PULL BACK with the texts. That sort of stuff is honestly quite annoying. You’re not gonna win her heart through endless texts. Just try and be cool when you’re with her. I’m not saying guys who have been friendzoned stay there forever, but you’re not gonna get out by being more and more obvious that you like her.
