I need time to think
I have a crush on my neighbor and shes a year older than me. We've been good friends for a while now and she even asked me to her senior prom. Her friends have been telling me she might like me and that makes me excited to think that. Shes the first girl ever that i actually like and she makes me feel ways no one else can (cuz i have trouble forming emotional connections with people). anyway weve been hanging out and texting more recently lately and i just couldnt keep my feelings in much longer. I told her that i liked her and the conversation went like this
"I like you"
She smiled "Thank you for telling me. Can I have time to think?"
and that was pretty much it. idk if time to think means if she likes me or not or if she is just thinking of the least painful way to say no. Please help. It's been 2 days since I've told her and she has said nothing. I've been avoiding places we would meet cuz i dont want to run into her before she finishes "thinking." what should i do?
