I'm just unsure of what to say next. I've asked her what she's been doing with her life and she didn't respond to that question. I don't want to end up as 'boring questions guy', I want to get a little edgy and fun. What should be my goal tonight? Or, should I wait a few days?See, to me, she initiated the conversation out of nowhere. This is bewildering. One would have to assume that something has happened in her life to have her think about someone she used to spend a lot of time with, but hasn't in so long.
A) She just got done with a nasty breakup and is thinking back to the guys that treated her like a 'princess'.
B) Something in her life reminded her of me
I get what you are saying about finding out why, all of a sudden, she just messages me out of nowhere. My intention of asking her what she's been up to would of potentially given me a better grasp on what's going on.
If you were to message someone you haven't seen or spoken to in 5 years, it could be as a result of a lot of things. She could have been reminded of me, or she could want something. How can I deduce this without further info, you know?
But the problem is, if I keep throwing questions her way, she's going to be turned off. So i'm in a predicament. I have a few options, as I see it.
A) Ask her again what she's doing in her life
B) Ignore her until I get a second text from her (RISKY)
C) Straight up ask her to meet up and catch up (not neccessarily say "Let's meet up and catch up" but "I'm free tonight if you want to grab a few drinks, I can pick you up".
'B' sounds like the best course of action, but it's super risky. 'A' makes me sound annoying. 'C' goes against your recommendation totally. Waiting is a good option, but I also don't want to play games. I want to be clear: "I think it would be best if we talk in person".
Relationships are hard.
