Background: I have started university this week. I have a good acquaintance who used to go to school with me who is now at the same university as me.
I messaged this girl a few weeks ago offering her help and suggesting maybe to meet up but she did not follow up. So essentially no reply but she KNOWS I am here and is avoiding contacting me.
Anyway, she arrived yesterday and has not contacted me at all, complete silence today on her end.
*Maybe it's me but I would expect if a friend/acquaintance was going to the same university as you that you would maybe contact each other and meet up.. Obviously you don't have to be friends but would it not be manners to at least meet up once? How am I going to pass her now when I bump into her considering she is pretty much ignoring me? Won't it be awkward if she ignores me in passing?
Does anyone have any past experience with friends going to the same university? How did you deal with it? Did they ignore you/pretend you weren't there or did they meet with you?
To be honest she probably didn't like you in school and is using this opportunity to start fresh. You know, you weren't exactly close, she's just not interested
Many people see university as a new life, sometimes it's the first time they are completely free to do what they want. It's not because she dislikes you but more likely it's because she doesn't want to be constrained by pre-existing expectations, reputations and people.
Honestly I did think that she would want to make new friends so only contacted her once but would it not be manners for her to at least say hi and meet up once?*
Am I expecting too much? *
You've been the bigger person and you've tried t reach out to her and that's all you can do. If shes aware of your message and has ignored- that's pretty rude, but that's some people. There's nothing else you can do, just try make your own new friends.
Forget about her. Chances are that you'll meet better people at uni anyway.
lol how about you move on?
