So what is it with women and "I'll think about it" meaning "no" the majority of the time? I can understand not wanting to hurt someone's feelings, but I would rather go through pain now and move on than deal with anxiety as I wait for an answer and then end up being disappointed and having to wallow in misery about it later.
My friend and I have been good friends for years now. I've sought furthering our relationship recently. About a month ago, we went to go see a movie, just the two of us, but it never went further than a hug. That tells me that she must have at least some feelings for me. Last Sunday I brought up the subject, and she said that she'll have to think about it. She does have a legitimate concern if we were to pursue a romantic relationship: she goes to school in North Carolina and comes home only for two or three breaks, and I go to school here in Georgia.
Because she said she'll think about it, experience-based disappointment is setting in, and I've been losing sleep (what little I get anyways) because of this. Should I just be patient and wait for whatever she decides, or should I just give up now?
