you gave good advice. I agree with you that she doesn't deserve to be ignored. It can be kind of tricky though. I mean, in her case, I think she should let him be because he didn't even follow through with his own party invite. And you're right, if he wants to respond PERIOD, he will.
What you did was harmless, lizz. Don't worry.
I have something interesting to share though:
After I broke up with one particular guy in the most awkward way ever, I still texted and wrote him e-mails because the breakup was so sudden and I wanted him to truly understand where I was coming from. I felt like, if he really knew what kind of person I am, he wouldn't react to me the way he did. So, as stubborn as I am, I was persistent. I kept texting and calling and e-mailing here and there (not every day or anything like that) but I was persistent enough to prove a point.
In the beginning, he ignored me. He'd answer his phone sometimes
and responded to my texts the same. I was so annoyed with him, to tell you the truth, because he's so NOT one to express his feelings and constantly left me in a state of frustration and confusion.
But I was still persistent. (I know, I know ... why bother? LOL). I just can't explain it, I just had to get through to this guy no matter how long it took. And after countless arguments and " make-ups," he slowly cracked. For the first time, he opened up ..... I mean, REALLYYY opened up to me.
We got it all out of our system, and till this day, we're tight. LMBOOO! I stopped texting him, calling, and e-mailing since then ... but he'll call to see how I'm doing and vise versa ... then we'll laugh about who we're interested in and fill each other in on events and such ...
We've come a longgggg way. Now, whenever he sees that I'm "talking" to a potential somebody, he gets protective ... but that's totally normal. lol. I do too.
I hope you guys don't mind my little story.
