Well she did seek me out a lot over a period of 2 weeks so who knows. Maybe she was just homesick or bored. Still she really is a ridiculously beautiful girl in the purely physical sense, and also as well-known and rich as they come (she's an elected "student union" rep at just 19 FFS).
To be honest the only reason I am still going on about it is because I think "WTF, a girl like that went out of her way repteadly to find me and ask me out and even mentioned me as a suitor to her friends, and I blew it".
but yes it was a valuable lesson.
