    Advice needed

    Hello,

    I met this girl while hiking. We spoke for 2-3 hours going down the mountain and eventually exchanged contact info. I messaged her that night that I’d like to take her for dinner to get to know her more. she replied saying that she will taking me up the offer when her schedule frees up a bit. I wasn’t sure if that was a nice rejection on her end or she was actually busy. Normally when someone agrees to meet but doesn’t give a timeline, I move on, but I really like this girl and I wouldn’t want to move on without another chance. How and when do I follow up with her without sounding too pushy or desperate.

    thanks!

    Usually my rule is two attempts, and then I let it go unless they set something up, because otherwise I am investing my energy into something I don’t think the other person will. I would wait a couple weeks to a month at the longest, or a convenient time like a holiday that you think she may be more readily available.
