TL;DR: There's this girl I really like, who is apparently not interested in me, since I've already made a move on her without any luck. Nevertheless, I've decided not to give up and make one more effort to try and win her over. I want to prove my worth to her/impress her and make her think it over. How should I handle the situation this time? How should I approach her? Text her? Only in person? Which kind of attitude would be my best chance?
And here comes the long story. It's been like 4 months that I'm in to this girl. Most of the guys I talked to, do find her to be attractive but in my eyes, she's like a goddess, extremely beautiful. I'm 99% sure she's single, we live really close to each other but don't know each other a lot on a personal level.
In the beginning, I didn't even have the guts to talk to her because I thought I stand no chance with her. At some point, I realized I had to take my shot and approach her even though it seemed kind of pointless. I started talking to her both in person when I got the chance as well as texting her a few times and she would react really calm and cool about it (not excited though) , smiling etc, being kind of friendly as if we knew each other for a long time. But that was smalltalk she was just trying to be nice.
As soon as she realized I like her, it didn't go well (as I expected) and I already regret that the way I expressed myself was pessimistic without any confidence at all and said some things that might have scared her away. When I asked her out, she read the message but didn't respond anything at all. Then, I had to tell her everything through text e.g. "I really like you a lot and have been thinking about you for a while, even though I have no idea if you're even attracted to me I want to get to know you better and just had to let you know how I feel to get it out of my system." Nothing vulgar or bad about it, but I do understand it was too much overwhelming for her and I blew it. Anyway, that happened 6 weeks ago, I got no response to any of this, so I get what it means and tried to stop thinking about her or meet someone else, but it didn't work. I went out with another girl but couldn't enjoy it or get my crush out of my head.
Having said that, I recently changed my mind and decided not to give up and try to approach her once again. Even though I'm well prepared for one more rejection, I feel like I have nothing to lose, so I might as well follow my instinct. Since then, I've only texted her once on her birthday with an honest and beautiful wish for her birthday when she actually did respond typically "thank you, blah blah bla". Other than that, I bumped into her twice outside and both of the times I acted all chill as if nothing happened, I even teased her a little bit, she was laughing and later I got away, no pressure, it was not awkward at all.
These days I changed my profile picture and she hit the like button, which was so unexpected for me. Obviously, that doesn't mean she likes me, but it definitely means that she's ok with what happened, not trying to avoid me or terrified with the way I approached her back then. I mean like, if you really despise someone or think that he's creepy and you're fully aware that he's attracted to you, would you do something like that? Would you "like" his picture or act normal and smile when you see him outside? Probably not... It doesn't make sense, I almost feel like she's playing with my brain. Like she wants me to pay attention to her again because she is enjoying it even though she has no intention of going out with me.
Anyway, I have no idea what went wrong, I just assume that she doesn't like my face/style/appearence or just was afraid to be open to someone she doesn't know well enough, or I didn't handle it right or maybe she doesn't want to get involved to any trouble because we have a lot of common acquaintances in the neighbourhood or she has her mind on someone else, or she wanted to be single for the time being during summer or a combination of all these assumptions. Either way, I know it's almost a lost case already and it's irrational from my side to keep going after her, but unfortunately that's how I feel, so please do not give me any advice to stop spending my time on her, I already know that I should and tried it without succeeding. By this point, I just want to try once again to win her over. I need a way to surprise her or impress her, do something she wouldn't expect from me, make her have a second thought on me and maybe make her consider me as an opportunity if that's possible. I just need to improve the situation.
There's a local event in a few days that I know she will attend and if I go there, most likely I will see her in person again and have the chance to talk to her. Should I wait for this? Or text her anytime e.g. tonight? And what am I supposed to say? I want her to feeling comfortable with whatever I do, not to put any pressure on her like last time. Thank you for reading this long text, what would you do in my position?
