hey guys I need help from the masters! there is some sort of back story to this so you guys can get some idea whats up, but bare with me thanks!
I have this lady friend who I've known for about 3 yrs, and i had a crush on her, but i had a gf at the time so nothing happened. we would hang out a lot and she would tell me about guys she'd see and hook up with and I'd do the same. anyway something happened and it kind of put our friendship in a rough patch and we got distant.
However, recently we have been hanging out a lot and I've noticed a certain vibe about her like she digs me and stuff. and even my sister notices too so it isn't just me. like one time i'm at her place hanging out i ask her for a ride home she gives me one, but as she drops me off my OTHER lady friend (strictly friends btw) shows up and my crush asks who that is and i say oh its____ and i go for a hug good bye and say thanks for the ride, but she looked angry and wouldn't return the hug. and just two days ago i go out to the club with her but i bring my ladyfriend along and she was surprised like oh i thought you were coming alone. and at the end of the night kept asking me if i was seeing her and why I wouldn't hook up with her. and (last example promise) last night we hit the bars but before i went to go pick her up she asked me if it was just gonna be us two, and then when she actually got in the car she asked again about my lady friend who i brought with to the club the night before, if she was gonna join us.
AND in addition to all that she gives me the basic IOI's like laughing at my dumb jokes and not wanting me to leave and stuff like that.
Now that you guys know somewhat how she has been acting around me, hopefully you guys can help me out and give me re-assurance that she has been giving me hints her and there, or just being friendly. PLUS I would love some words of encouragement on asking her out or getting some sort of strategy on how to escalate with her or something.
OH one more thing, I gotta do this fast because she is moving to MIAMI at the end of August and we are in California so its pretty far.
PS thanks for reading this whole thing guys I know its alot, but I had to put it out there so you guys can give me the most optimal advice! and I will be responding and doing updates for this thread
