Hi everyone, I was hoping to get your advice on something. Last weekend I went to a festival with my friends and mutual friends. On the first night, I met this girl who is friends with mine. She lives close to me. We were talking and flirting, sharing laughs outside of the group. The second night I realised I kind of had feelings for her so I tried talking to her some more, it was just me and her at one point and we discussed our jobs/school. But I asked her friends (I'm close with some of them) if she was single. She said yes and despite being attractive she didn't get a lot of boy attention, I thought this was some good news as she is more attractive than me. So on the last night it probably became obvious I had some interest in her, the conversation was a lot more awkward.
I was still optimistic so 5 days later after the festival I messaged her over Instagram, since I'm on holiday I didn't think about the time difference and realised it was one in the afternoon in England. She left it on seen and it's really damaged my confidence and I've been over thinking it so I want to know what you think. This isn't the first time I've messed my chances with an attractive girl and damaged a friendship. Be honest, if I'm being creepy or a "nice guy" tell me because I'm trying to become a better person with relationships
