When Zed, her crush, was still being vague and weird about whether or not he might return her interest after a YEAR (I would never in my life be that patient, wow), she finally said to him "When you say 'maybe' and then never follow up, it's like being told 'no' every day. Please respect my feelings enough to just say 'no' once if the answer is 'no'".
As it happens, in that case the answer was, in fact, no. He's really into her, but has decided that he just can't do poly. :/
