Gonna recall a story that happened last fall. I'm not asking what to do, but rather your thoughts on my actions as well as another person.

So last fall I was talking with a girl that had shot me down before. We were both 20 and going to the same college. Rejection didn't matter to me anymore and I was glad to be friends again and didn't even wish for anything more. We texted often and were upfront about most things happening to us. We even hung a couple times and had good fun. But around the time that final exams were coming around, I could tell she was getting overly stressed. She was doing independent research and some other hard classes (some that we shared).

One day, she actually called me, which was rare considering all we ever did was text, and when I answered she was crying and flipping out saying how she wanted to just get out of town and such things. The reason she was like this was that someone had hit her when she was driving home. While that seems like a small problem, I figured it was a kind of "straw that broke the camel's back" kinda situation. I did my best to calm her down and we hung up and I guess she took a nap. After, we didn't talk for around a week.

The next time I texted her, it started as usual, but at one point, it seemed like she snapped at me. She mentioned doing something afterward (irrelevant to my story) and I responded saying "do whatever you like." What she said after was "I don't care what you or anyone thinks. I do what I want :)" The convo ended shortly after that.

So I knew she was stressed and I wanted to do something nice for her to lift her spirits. So I decided to make a "gift of hope" (google it) since she brought that up in a convo before. After our last final, I met up with her and tried to hand it to her but she outright refused it. We haven't spoken at all since.

I didn't want to play that "nice guy" thing hoping she would like me all of a sudden. I genuinely wanted to do something nice for her to help her out.

I googled "gift of hope" and it brought me to a bunch of organ donor sites.
Trying to give her one of your kidneys may have been the wrong call.

Yeah I couldn't remember it clearly. Hope this illustrates it better.

That's actually really sweet.
It sounds like she was really "off" when finals came around. If I'm reading this correctly, this was all roughly 1 year ago, so I'm actually really surprised you haven't spoken since.

Your story has stumped me. I think the straw not only broke her back, but her mind.

I have no way of knowing for sure because we haven't spoken.

But, like I said, a couple things happened after. I'm unsure if that contributed to our not talking or not though.

A few one-sided things happened after but I'll only elaborate if you find it necessary.

Sorry about the stupidly long read, so thanks if you respond or even if you read it and don't have any input.
