Friend lied to me? Watch

    I've been friends with this girl for a few weeks now and we do get along a lot while we're at uni. I messaged her one night for a bit of a catch up. We had a small conversation going until she said she wanted to sleep and wished me good night, it was about 11pm. But she never went to sleep because she was still posting in the group chat until quite late, it was after midnight.

    Could it be something I said? Is she not my friend? Am I overthinking things?

    ok i probably phrased that badly

    I mean could she really have pretended to go to sleep to not want to talk to me? I know she was actually tired because she does a late shift at work on weekdays until 9pm

    I think you're kind of overthinking this, sometimes the conversation dries up while you're talking but you don't want to be rude, she may have need to speak with one of her other friends urgently and don't want to make it seem like you were unimportant. You haven't been friends for that long, I wouldn't get too offended

    She just didn't want to speak to you.

    Is she aware that you're in this group chat? I mean, if she was straight up lying about it to not speak to you then she's pretty dumb, imo. I'd say she probably either was being polite and wanted to end the conversation because she was running out of things to say (not to be rude) or perhaps she meant to sleep but got chatting in the group accidentally and didn't realise the time. It can easily happen. I wouldn't take it too seriously or personally myself unless it becomes a common occurrence.

    It is not always a bad thing, she might be playing the whole 'I have a life' card to make you think more highly of her, thus because she likes you she does not want you to know she has all this time to talk to you.

    Sounds dumb, some people are very dumb.

    But it's weird because at uni we could talk for ages and we get along quite well!

    I only see her once a week so that's why I want to keep contact, but if she's acting weird like this via messages then I dunno
