This is a rejection, yes?
As far as your situation is concerned, it pretty much is. A female who's interested in you will return that interest. Females with little to no interest will not. At least this one wasn't interested in wasting your time, energy, or money to provide her with a free meal while she played with her phone.
Looking through the thread you strike me as just starting out while tackling an academically challenging subject. Consider investing in a reliable ready reference you can pick up and study to better prepare yourself for engaging the opposite sex. I'd suggest that you get yourself a copy of Doc Love's "The System: The Dating Dictionary". Doc Love, also known as the late Tom Hodges, wrote a weekly advice column that's archive is mirrored on several sites and a podcast. While his media is a bit pricey, it's a solid foundation a guy can branch out from, but I would also suggest you review his advice column to decide if his view on dating and relationships is aligned with what you aspire for yourself. To save yourself a search, give this scribed link a gander to find out if his book is something you'd like to add to your library.Read More
@Atrox Agree with @Scorpion69_ That hyperpoliteness probably means there was sand and tumbleweeds blowing in her pants for you as she typed it. No hard feelings and don't go away mad, but do go away type of breeze.
The text isn't too bad, you didn't ask her out, you asked her to join you which is good, but coffee dates are considered "lame." Don't beat yourself up over what didn't work this time, doesn't sound like she was responsive to you no matter what you offered.
Want to go out? < Join me for coffee < Join me at place < join me for experience
Keep churning through prospects, brother.
Do you want to spend your time 'getting to know her' on there or do you want to go for a coffee to do that? Answer that and you'll know what to do, funnily enough. If you start doing something you don't want to do to get an outcome you do want you're bending yourself out of shape for a bit of pussy.
