    Grad School Crush – Any advice about what to do about this situation?

    I’m a PhD student and have a crush on another grad student that works across the hall from me. I started chatting with her via facebook and we had several days where we would talk off/on throughout the day. At times she was very playful, we would exchange funny links/pictures, etc. But, out of the blue, I noticed that her facebook profile said “In a Relationship”. Up to this point, her profile had not said anything about her relationship status. It just APPEARED one day. I’m not sure if it is real or not. We were chatting yesterday on FB over a period of several hours and it was going great until she suddenly stopped responding. I was telling her a story about something that happened at work and then said: “It’s such a long story. It’s a story full of lawyers, racism, nasty emails, etc.”. She saw the post, but didn’t respond. Did I make a fatal mistake? Should I back off and let her initiate the next conversation? I am all ears if anyone has any advice.
