"have him text me for a change" after literally telling the guy she's busy all weekend. So little awareness

Man, this girl is a lot pretentious and a lot awkward. She doesn't match Nick's energy at all! She does a lot of evaluating instead of simply observing/learning about Nick. I'm surprised Nick didn't feel shut down

Oh boy...we were having a drink and everything was going well, and then I noticed a strange bruise in his arm...I asked and he admitted having strangled a dog the day before. I walked away.
