I'm a 22 yr old guy who is still currently in college and I met this cute Latina in her early to mid 20's who recently graduated on the subway home from my internship a few weeks ago. I started a conversation with her after a sketchy guy looking for trouble attempted to accost me and eventually her while we were waiting in a crowed for our train to come. After instigating the conversation the train came and we boarded sitting in separate seats near each other.
Throughout the ride we continued to talk to each other namely about basic subjects like names, what she was doing in the city etc. Eventually me and her found out we worked at internships with the same focus, and that make her very interested in me I think? Additionally, I knew alot about the country she came from which I also think helped establish some sort of rampore.
Towards her stop I give her my business card which had my name, phone #, and email on it which I causally do when I meet someone regardless of the situation. I decided it was too early to try to exchange phone numbers She in turn give me a piece of paper with her name on it, which she told me to look up on Facebook. So I eventually get around to adding her on Facebook a few days later an she accepted sometime later.
When I check my personal email a couple of weeks later(which I don't do often). I found out she had emailed me a couple of days after me met saying that I hadn't added her yet...in her email she used a smiley face at the end of her message so it wasn't angry or anything.
So after adding her I FB'ed her where I apologized for adding her sooner as I had been swamped with both my school and internship. She responded that it was ok and we got talking again, furthermore in her replies she used alot of smiley faces again and she asked more about me and I did the same with her. Where we talked about work, and me & her future ambitions. I ended it by asking if she wanted to hang out sometime and I finally give her my phone number and she give me her's' after I asked for it. She again responded cheerfully and it seemed enthusiastically to the prospect.
Now what should I think of this is she interested in me? Also how do I keep this going as I'm always able to establish a connection then reach some sort of roadblock/dead end, I'm trying to figure out her full intentions so I'm taking things very slowly even though it's early.
Also this is her first stay in the U.S. as she is doing an internship here. Her English is pretty good and everything. But idk how many people she knows around my area so I'm trying to figure out if she is interested in me, is she just flirting, or is she just trying to make a friend. Any of these is fine from my pov but I would like to know which?
Thanks for the advice in advance!
