Hello all, I have been friendezowned in the past (I know we all have). I know the signs of it, and know when to accept the fact. To make a long story short, I don't normally like to get into a relationship with girls while I'm at school, due to the workload and for the most part I basically commute back and forth. Anyway I met a girl who seemed really cool. Managed to "hang out" only 2 times before Christmas break (met her 2 weeks before break). While over break I tried to set up some dates (she lives about 40 miles). There always seemed to be an excuse (oh shit). I managed to talk to a friend of her's who stated "this may sound really weird but, she gets really nervous when a guy likes her, she doesn't think any guys could ever like her." I was slightly taken-back, the girl is beautiful, smart, and really funny. Fast forward to this semester, knowing friendzowned was coming fast, I unsuccessfully tried to set up a few more dates. I suppose the information from the friend is what made me become even more of a sucker (as stated above). The results were as expected (nothing). I decided it was time to cut losses and end communication. I didn't care to become friendzowned and also realized that apparently she just wasn't as interested as she was when we first met(when we met it was pretty clear). Fair enough, that is life. My question is, I have a feeling that I am going to be receiving a phone call, to do some studying for an upcoming test. I don't want to. What do I say to clearly state that "hanging out" only for school purposes isn't what I'm interested in? Or do I completely ignore everything? Your help, OT, would be greatly appreciated.
