i asked out this girl last year and she said no, and things got awkward. she's amazing, literally the most amazing girl ive ever met. recently she started texting me a lot, and it hurt to talk to her so i was terse, gave short responses to basically make it clear that i still wasnt ready to talk to her because the rejection really hurt me. she still keeps texting me first, and im put in an awkward position. if this was literally any other girl id ask her out tomorrow because its that obvious, but with her im afraid of messing up, especially a second time.
