After thinking about it for a while, I came to the conclusion that Pixie wasn’t into me after all and I’d never hear from her again. I mean, considering our date had awkward silences lasting ten minutes or more and she never initiated any affection.
But no – I just got a text from her that says “Hey pretty lady” with a winky face.
WHAT IS THIS I CAN’T EVEN.
I’m gonna say either a) the awkwardness on our date was because I’m so intimidating that she got tongue-tied (apparently, my quality of dorky spazitude is not always immediately obvious to other people, and my height/hair/career path can come off as sort of imposing); b) she’s not all that into me but is still hoping to keep me on the back burner and maybe get laid (The Pedant made her sound like a bit of a player) or c) she meant to send that text to someone else.
