I'll try to make this as short as I can. Back in Nov. 2010, I met this girl. She was dating someone at the time, but soon afterwards he broke up with her. Dec. 2010 I saw her again at a friends house, and her ex was at the party as well. She was still trying to get back with him, so she was paying attention to him all night. I spoke to het for about 5 minutes, but soon the conversation turned kind of awkward and we had nothing left to say, so I said "Well, ok. Nice talking to you." It was obvious she was still in love with her ex. On April 2011 I saw her at the gym, and we spoke for a little while. She was very friendly. We became friends on FB and about a week later I asked something about law (we're both lawyers) and when she said she couldn't help me I told her "Ok, no problem. I guess I'll have to come up with a better excuse to invite you to lunch" to which she replied "Great. Come up with a better excuse to invite me to lunch " I then saw her at the gym about a week later, and we spoke for about 20 minutes. Later that day I wrote her on FB and said I was free on Friday and maybe we could go to the beach and after we could grab something to eat. She said "Sounds like a great plan ". I asked for her cel# and she gave it to me. On Thursday I called her. No answer. I sent a txt msg and she called about an hour later. I asked if we were still on for tomorrow, and she said she hadn't been feeling too well the whole week, but was getting better and that she would call me next morning to let me know. Next morning I txted her saying something like "Hope you're feeling better. If not, a little swim will do wonders. Let me know". She texted back saying "I won't be able to make it to the beach, but I'm free after 2pm. If you want to do something let me know". I said ok. About an hour later she sent a txt saying "I got out earlier than expected. On my way to the beach, if you want to meet me there ". I called, she said she was going with her brother and I told her I'd meet her there. So, I got to the beach and we spent about 2 hours together. Her brother was there, but it wasn't weird or anything. We talked about a bunch of stuff, and AFAIK everything went well. Next day I called her, but I got no answer. I thought about leaving a voicemail, or sending her a txt, but then I thought "if this girl is interested in me, she will call back saying she had a missed call". But she never called. On Tuesday I saw her at the gym. She was with her mother (they train together) and I said hi, very little chit chat, then said goodbye when I left. I told the story to my best friend, and he said I shouldn't quit. He said I should call her again today and ask her if she wants to do something on the weekend. He said men have to be insistent and go after what they want. He said women fall for those kind of guys even if they're not interested in them at the beginning. What do you guys think? Read between the lines (she didn't call back)? Or make one more attempt?
