At school, there was this beautiful girl I saw quite a few times, and the other day, I finally summoned the courage to tell her how amazing I thought she was. I told her I wanted to get to know her, so basically, simply put, I asked her out. Instead of a yes or no, I got a "maybe".
Well, I didn't know if this was because she was too nice to say no, but I wanted to stay open-minded, so I figured, perhaps she just needed time to think about it. So then, the time comes, and she says "I don't think today will work".
I figured this was just a straight-forward "no", and I didn't want to ask the next day or any further, because even though she said "today", this basically implies never (unless I'm wrong), and plus, I don't want to be hassling or anything.
But I don't know where to go from here, and this is where I need some help from an expert; I don't want to give up on her, if that's still an option. You just don't come by girls like her every day.
