In Part One of an office saga:
Most commentators feel that he was being given the cold shoulder.
Yesterday's weekend update seems to bear this out. He reported dropped pronouns in her text messages, even though many included the pronouns. What was the difference?
His overtures for dinner were met with:
"I have to work Friday night."
"Wish I could get together"
"I just got a raise last month. I never call out sick."
He wrote, humorously, that he was beginning to get the feeling that she was avoiding him. Her response?
"LOL. Too funny!"
As with any accusation, if she is unable to deny it, we shall not deny it for her.
Is she disinterested or...
is she interested in being pursued?
He wrote: "hey, if you're not interested, just say so" to which she replied, "I never said that!"
"Well, I hope we see each other at the office party" to which she replied:
"I am sure we'll see each other" with both, the pronoun "we", and the additional word "sure" to add to your analysis.
What sayest thou now?
Is she disinterested? Is she playing hard to get? Or...
is she allowing him to continue pursuit, strictly to enjoy the attention, but coming at his emotional expense?
Does the word "we" merely come as reflective language?
