I'm not sure. I've never had one before, and would like to experience one at some point in my life, I just don't know if she is a good starting point.

She is not from my point of view but that is a singular opinion. You have free will, it will be your choice.

She says I can come any day I want, except Sunday.

Says she's really excited to see me. Wonder what that could mean...

Hmmm, there you go analyzing. Could be genuine you know.

Well, her precise wording was "I'm so excited". I guess she means the movie. But what I don't understand is why she is so excited about wanting to see a movie with me that she has seen a thousand times...

You could ask her? The answer will be interesting to you although it is much more revealing face to face.

I will remember to ask her that, for sure. I do remember her saying that she instantly likes anyone really into maths. The main protagonist is a mathematician. Maybe there is more to this 'maths groupie' idea.

Of course there is. Opportunities abound, you just have to see them and exploit them.

She said that before 5 PM, it'll be just me and her... and possibly her older brother but he is always in his room studying. Perfect.

The term to end. If only it could come sooner...

You get home too late to drop by her place before then?

It is at least a 60-minute bus ride away and I have lots of work to do before the end of term. As much as I would like to -- it will have to wait.

Okay, then wait it will. That is a lot of traveling time.

I asked her why she is so excited to see the film. She said "I'm more excited to catch up with you to be honest ". Hmm.

Sooeeee! Sure is dangerous to wait several days after a reply like that.

Something makes me wonder about the context of this situation. Perhaps she changed her relationship status on Facebook as soon as she realised I had made an account on her -- knowing that when I saw that she was single I'd start trying to meet with her again?

Looks like the only problem will be if someone else moves in before you get there...

Next Monday is honestly the earliest I can go to meet her. I think it's unlikely that someone else will try to make a move (although it is possible). She's not at uni right now, and the only way is if her ex-BF were to call her or something...

Hopefully you are right.

I don't want to get my hopes up, though. Technically, she's rejected me twice already!

I would say that you rejected her first.

How come?

When you did not follow up on the opportunities that she provided. I told you that is what they consider rejection.
