Default I have no idea what im doing.

OK, so this is a vary weird question to ask here but what the hell.

So there is this girl I like in school, i have talked to her a few times after class and everything seems good, like we can become friends (hopefully more),
But this is my problem. I went to message her on Facebook and she never responded. , Ok so I wait a few days and message her about a school topic, like "hey, would you happen to know when this paper is due?" And she responded that day and we talked for a while and every thing was good.
But I message her the next day saying "Hey, hows it going?" And again she does not respond. So again I am super confused. Should I message her again about school and try to get her talking again, or is that a bit creepy? IDK WHAT TO DO!!! should I just act like nothing ever happened and keep talking to her after class? Or just give up?

Maybe she thinks you like her and doesn't want that type of relationship with you? Same thing almost exactly happened to me so I said screw it and that was it. We still talk every so often but just small talk. Or she could be pulling crap that girls do and playIng little games. But I wouldn't jump to assumptions or try to hard to do anything, just let it flow. That's just my experience.

I have thought about the "playing with me" thing, she does not seem like that kind of girl. But what really REALLY just baffles me is that I could not picture her seeing my text and just not responding, I am appealed, she does not at ALL seem that way. Would it be weird or wrong, or just stupid to keep trying to talk to her after class?

A question like "how's it going?" is probably why she isn't responding. Sounds like you guys haven't talked much... so you're basically forcing her to start an awkward conversation with that question.

Asking direct questions to open the dialogue is usually the best approach IMHO like you did before. Then just take it from there...

Or best idea yet... talk to her in person!!!!

Default Re: I have no idea what im doing.

So would it be weird to send her another message now? its been like a 2 days since I sent the "hows it going one", But she is only in one of my classes and I dont want to come off sounding dumb because I am asking her about every single assignment's due date. Im new at this and I am %100 lost.

Have you checked out "The Power of Love" thread? You could've posted your issue in there. But hey we are here to help each other out.

Try talking to her in person. Don't just ask her "Hey, how its going?" That will get you no where. Just ask her "What's new?" or better yet, compliment her and ask her about something you notice thats different about her.

From experience, Facebook will get you no where. As hard as talking to the girl you like in person is, you will be better off. Good luck to you!!

Just relax and wait until you have a legit reason to talk to her. I know it's easier said then done

But you dont think I should just completely write her off because she did not respond to my Facebook text thing?
She is new to the school this year and usually she is walking from class alone so that's when I have started the conversation's up before. (when they (girls) are in "packs" I dont even bother).

I do have a few of my friends in that class and I have a history of being a loud mouth, Is that a really big turn off? I have learned to keep my mouth shut more, so I have not had that problem recently.

At this point, you better talk to her soon. Otherwise she'll be in a "pack". Just ask her how her classes are going in person. If she responds, which she should, then continue to talk about something that might interest her. Something....

A loud mouth? Well try to control yourself.

Absolutely not. Facebook is nothing but trouble. And not getting a response from a girl on there is pretty common for some reason.
The thread mentioned is pretty long buts basically a chronicling of my and 03DJ's really bad attmepts to woo our respective dream girls lol

My girl works at target and I got her a christmas card and wrote a note explaining my feelings, with my name and number in it, Gave it to her in a really nice exchange of smiles and laughing and her looking really really cute. Felt good. A week later I still have no response from her, and I'm still planning on trying to pursue something even if its just a friendship.

So for you to give up cuz you didn't get a fb msg is absurd. If you like her, go for it. If not someone else will

Should my next attempt at talking to her be in person then? And should I just completely not even mention the unanswered messages?

Well said my friend.

My girl goes to school with me, we used to talk last year until I started being an idiot and showed off with my car and annoyed the heck out of her. I haven't talked to her in a while until earlier this week. So far I've said hi, waved to her, and now we are parking next to each other. I plan to continue to pursue her.

Keep going on your girl...you won't give up. Forget about communication through an electronic device... She will appreciate you a lot more if you talk to her in person. You can do it, so just do it!

Yes. pretend they never ever happened. no matter how you phrase it, it's just going to come out snoody. "Soo I see you didn't bother answering my message. THANKS."

face to Face is the way to go, you get a response and you get the body language and emotion you dont get via electronic device
A doesn't make you feel the same way as a real smile..trust me lol

No, I'm just saying have a good reason to talk to her. Don't try to force a conversation, because when you like her, it sometimes comes out awkward you know? And I'm saying don't try to message her all the time and not have a thing to talk about. Only message her if you have something to talk about that is appropriate in messaging( some things should only be said in person, and others are better in person) but don't just completely forget her if you really like her

Well, Looks like im suck though till Monday. But come Monday ill strike up a conversation if it kills me. If she is with a group of friends should I wait to talk to her? And what can I do to set myself apart from every other guy she talks to?

And because I do need to know, what are some sign's she's not into me?
