Long story short: I've been seeing a girl for about 5 weeks. I'm 24, she's 29. Started off with a wedding reception, then went to bars and saw a movie. All the while, she was beginning to grow on me; she's beautiful and a lot of fun. Last time we hung out was 12 days before Thanksgiving. We made out in my basement, and before she left, as usual, she said to give her a call sometime. So I have. 3 times in fact (and once for her birthday), but she won't respond. To top off my frustration, I know she is not the kind of girl to avoid me or be mean to me, but all the while when we were hanging out, she would make comments about hanging out in the future, coming over to see her new place, etc... And now, I can't get the time of day from her. I know I didn't say anything to piss her off. My question is, is there a purpose to string someone along when you know you don't want to see them for much longer? I know the age gap is a part of it. She knew of my age a long time ago. But why start something and then drop a bomb?
