Her day was total sh!t. Work sucked, family member died, too many bills and not enough money, something broke and/or has to be replaced and it costs too much, she failed a major test, got fired, what have you. She calls you up and wants you to stop by for a needed hug. You get there and the tears have been streaming - or they are just about to.
Now, this is the classic guy-I-can-tell-all-my-problems-to. Dangerously close to LJBF and/or friend zone. However, it is a girl that you would really want a LTR with. But she's "just looking for friends" and hasn't gotten that far yet.
How is one to go about this situation? Its doubtful there will be making out, and highly unlikely much sexual escalation. However, it is prime for plenty of Kino and even appropriately calibrated playful negs. Its definately a C1 situation, but C2 and/or C3 could spell disaster, right? I suppose one could try to push for C2 / C3, and maybe even further, but I would think things could turn real sour, real quick after the emotions dissipate: "We shouldn't have done that, I was just in an emotionally vulnerable place, You took advantage of me that way!" ARGH! Hell, you would get out of the friend zone - by losing the girl entirely!! Emotions are almost as bad as alchohol sometimes.
Anyways, this seems like something that could come up quite often. What is everyone's take on it?
