Imagine striking up a conversation with a beautiful girl, who unexpectedly replied to your compliment. Things are going well, she appears to be flirting. Of course, you’re the guy she’s talking about, who else could it be? Excellent, now it looks like you might even have a date tomorrow night!
Ah, right. Back down to earth with the realization that she thought you were just having a nice chat, and no flirting was actually involved. That must have been quite a rollercoaster ride of a text conversation. Talk about reading the signals wrong.
