Super Sad! Girl Playing Hard To Get Gets Nothing

As all girls know, you should only snap back within twice the number of minutes it took him to respond minus the amount of letters in his name. Unfortunately, Sasha Mcclelland (C’25)  forgot this golden rule and snapped back THRICE the number of minutes, unintentionally pushing her potential lover, Brent Hill (W’23) into the friend zone. Brent Hill did not pick up on these signals, and slowly stopped accepting her messages.

“Like, I’m just so confused. At first, I thought it was kind of cute. The chase can be fun sometimes. Then it got really annoying. Does she even like me?” Hill asked, perplexed.

Sasha was fuming when Brent stopped contacting her. 

“I don’t get it. All I did was avoid all his text and calls, his roommate, his friends, and dodged him every time I thought he made eye contact with me in the dining hall. The other day I saw him on Locust, and he smiled at me. I glared at him with the force of a thousand suns. Why is he no longer talking to me?” 

Awww, Sasha. No kissy kissy for you. Fingers crossed Brent waves at you in Econ recitation today.
