    Should I give it another try with this girl?

    I used to be in the same school with this girl 4 years ago we got along well as friends but she moved to another country 2 years ago, and since then, our interactions have been limited to texting on FB everyday.During this period, I started developing romantic feelings for her. Two months ago, I told her how I felt towards her and asked if she felt the same, and she replied “I do like you but I don’t want to date anyone right now” and also that she doesn’t like long-distance relationships since they never work out and that she hasn’t gotten over her previous long-distance relationship that broke her heart.At the same time, she had/has shown signs of interest by initiating text convos or putting the effort to continue them when I seemed to “draw back”. And she also used to send me pics of herself without me asking for it .
    Would you advice me to give it another try with her or should I just move on? Also; in my current stage, would you say she’s friend-zoned me or she really likes me?

    I say you should. If it doesn’t work then it doesn’t work but you should try. You got nothing to lose.

    “she replied “I do like you but I don’t want to date anyone right now”
    It’s the equivalent of someone saying: “I love you but I’m not (in love) with you.”
    In other words she said: “I don’t see YOU as being the one for me.”
    Welcome to the “Friend Zone”!

    Just because someone does not rudely reject you doesn’t mean you were not rejected.
    Tell her you understand how she feels and you have decided to pursue relationships with local girls.
    From this point on treat her as you would a sibling or male friend.

    In order for (her) to have been “the one” she would have had to see (you) as being “the one”.
    At the very least a soulmate is someone who actually wants to be with you!

    In a world with over 7 Billion people rejection just means: Next!

    Best wishes!

    @dashingscorpio , you’re right. I’m probly friendzoned, and yea, I’ll also treat her as just that, a friend. I recently decided to stop texting her for the time being. And yup; rejection =next

    You’d always be #2 (or #pick one) so (as you say) draw back. You don’t have to cut all communication but don’t put any effort or attention into it. You’re friendzoned in another country…. pretty huge disadvantage. If she wants to make a move be open to it, but probably she just wants the validation at times. Move on.

    @ok2go : You’re right, I should move on, tho she makes it harder by trying to contact me often when I back away. But even then, I’m still following your advice of putting no effort into the convo.

    @ok2go: Thanks! I’m moving on. Tho she makes it harder by contacting me. As you say, she might be looking for validation, so I’m putting no to little effort into the convos.
