    Confusing Signals


    So I am a graduate student in university and I have been after this girl for a few weeks. She gave me her number and we agreed to study together about four or five times. When we do, she seems to be very engaged and she throws in a flirt or two every now and then. However, I always start the texting conversations (which I don’t mind) and she never seems overly enthusiastic. There are an occasional “haha” or “lol” and explanation points but never any emojis. Plus, her replies are usually short and in cases when I don’t ask her a question, sometimes she never responds. Is this an indication that she isn’t interested after all or just that she is bad at texting and/or too busy?

    Everyone has different texting styles, so it’s very difficult to read too much into that. I think the fact that she is friendly and flirty with you in person is a good sign that she would be open to being asked out. The reverse situation would be worse, if she were flirty while texting but aloof when in person. Your best bet may be to ask her to go for a drink after an exam. You can pass it off as blowing off steam between colleagues or push it further if that’s where things go.
