Me: I don't know who this is, I'll figure it out later.
Text Received 6 Jan approx. 10:00PM
So I send her a text:

Facebook Message from me to Girl Evening of 8 Jan (emphasis added):
Let me begin by responding to your last text. Im happy to talk to you and I'm happy to get to know you. I feel bad because I feel like you are hoping for more of my attention than I am giving you.
I'd like you to understand where I'm at. I feel weird about making small talk over text messages. Originally I thought it would be a good idea, but since I don't know you that well still, it doesn't exactly cross my mind to text you during my downtime. Between church, school, and my current social life, I honestly don't spend a lot of time texting.
I apologize if I've mislead you; I certainly do not intend to hurt your feelings. I do look forward to going on a date with you."
Facebook message response 10 Jan:
"Hahaha no you're totally fine. Peace out."
Girl Updates Facebook status:
"I hate when you're having a perfectly fine day and then you see something on facebook that makes your heart sink a little.... :("
Blog Exclusive Response:
Your heart should not be sinking. You don't even know me... I just said I was happy to talk to you and get to know you. When I said get to know each other, I did not mean "You are now a part of my life." I asked a question "Where do you work?" I asked if anything interesting happened at work... Do you want to know something about me? Ask! I'd rather not carry the whole get to know you conversation...
Also, maybe you should reconsider who your friends are:
Dear friend of Girl,
I'm sorry I "chewed out" your friend. Maybe you read the note in a tone like I was yelling at her. Even then I don't really understand where you'd think I was upset with her. Like this part if I was yelling: I APOLOGIZE IF I'VE MISLEAD YOU; I CERTAINLY DO NOT INTEND TO HURT YOUR FEELINGS!!!
If you don't want to go on a date anymore, its cool. Honestly, at this point, I am feeling pretty upset. I tried to express to you how I felt sincerely about this entire interaction and I don't feel that I've been treated fairly.
I'd appreciate some comments, even if they are at my expense, because I really don't understand girls. And yes, I know its probably immature to publish this whole fiasco on my blog. I've laughed about it enough though that I thought I should share it with the world.
