    How would you interpret the following statement said to me in a recent msg
    "I mean I like this one guy and he doesn't really notice me = u =;;;;"

    I want to apply occam's to this and go from there but it's possible there is an emoticon there I'm not familiar with which may significantly change intention of said communication. All serious advice/opinions welcome.

    It appears to be Japanese-style emoticon. Closed eye-nose-closed eye-four sweatdrops.

    Still, Ask her what she meant.

    Most likely the emoticons translate into

    = u = : is a squinty frustrated face

    ;;;; : is most likely a set of compressed crying faces often used by women I know to add drama to statements so it would be like this ;_; ;_; (many people skip the underscore).

    As far as the context of the message she probably really is talking about some random guy and not trying to allude to anything; at least in my personal experience that is most often the case (actually it's always been the case... >_>)

    Best of luck to you.

    ^Thank you, i'll make sure not to respond in a rash/hasty way
    I think the bolded part is sound advice but there no knowing when she'll get my msg and when she'll respond

    $10 says she's talking about you. But I'd take Moony's advice.

    Its not that likely, girls are usually too embarrassed to say such a thing to the object of their affections. Not all, of course, but, and I hate to say it, its more likely Cheetatron is in 'friend' territory with her.

    Oh, I get what's going on here now. What's going is that you haven't provided enough of the conversation to give that line enough context for us to surmise what she means. Depending on how the prior portions of the conversation went, she may or may not be referring clandestinely to you.

    I must be old because that makes no sense to me but yeah, she is probably talking about you.

    Yes this is most likely true

    well most of the conversation doesn't pertain to what I was inquiring about however it was prompted by my saying she is rather attractive and my asking why she was single and if that was a preference
    she responds to that with "Thank you and it's not really...I mean I like this one guy and he doesn't really notice me = u =;;;; " I think moony is right here.
    Hell if not for the spaces I don't think I would have ever thought it might be directed at me

    I see. She's being obnoxiously ambiguous. My advice: Do you give a shit? If so, just ask her who the guy is. If she gives an even more ambiguous answer, it is almost certainly you. But if she says something like "Some guy" or "Just, some guy" or "Some guy you don't know", then she's not talking about you. If by some twist she IS talking about you even though she gave totally misleading answers, I prognosticate she is a basket case.

    I need one extra piece of info: How old is this girl?
