she kinda likes you thats why you guys talk but she sounds like shes got a pool of guys.<--Virgin or not you need to escalate while you can before it kind of fizzles
I'm not worried about her right now. I'm gaming other girls
This girl hasn't rejected you in my opinion unless she has.its good you have decided and may have opened your options and that doesn't surprise me but,use your skills to get out of the 'greyzone'.Simply kiss her at least and do not become one of her 'best friends'.
To me friends with benefits is either you are having a romantic affair but not exclusive or a purely sexual affair no strings attached.If she buys you stuff(since she work) then maybe that may count too.for now she likes you so game her on the side.keep opening up to new 'friends'
