My friend (who's in a relationship) told me about this HB 9 on my course last Friday.
This Monday I approached her, made small talk and got her number. She blanked my text saying hello. I didn't text any further.
Today I found her in my uni's library, we chatted for 15 minutes and I sat next to her in the lecture. After the lecture I asked her out and she said no (busy with coursework, maybe another time - a kind no basically).
No big deal. I deleted our conversation and her number.
My friend who told me about her said I should've spent more time getting familiar with her, like another 2-3 weeks. I disagreed, arguing that initial attraction is a huge thing, and her answer wouldn't have changed if I asked a week or a month from now. Besides, she's the type of girl who has tons of beta orbitters, the last thing I want is to become one of them. I obviously kept quiet about TRP when discussing with him.
Does my friend have a point or did I do the right thing?
