Ok, so here's my story. I had terrible oneitus for a girl, conquered it, she started falling for me and I caught it again. Was relatively nice for a while, just had the first date (bear with me, I'm young and she's never had a boyfriend).
Made a poor decision of taking her to the movies, but we cuddled. My hand got under her shirt rubbing her stomach up and down, tickling her, holding hands, etc.
Anyways, I texted her later, because I'm not one who plays games with a girl usually.
I said "Hey, I had a great time =)" about 2 hours after the date.
She responded saying "Hey =) I had a fun time too, but I don't think to be honest that I really felt anything."
I said "Yeah, I totally get it, part of it was the setting and it was only one date lol, but yeah I felt it too. I'd love to go out again sometime though"
She said "Idk. Like I really wanted to try it, because I guess I kinda had to and it was worth a try you know? But its just not for me, I dont think... I don't think I'd want to go out again. Not in a date type thing at least."
She's never had a boyfriend, she's extremely smart, really cute, and she gives lots of IOIs with me and we've both made it obvious we're interested in each other. I'm not heartbroken over this, because I took her off the pedestal a few days before the date, thank god. I realized she wasn't really girlfriend material, at least not right now.
But I'm kinda stumped as what to say.
"Yeah I totally get it. Let's just be friends, but remember friends don't put each other in boxes."
This good bros? Maybe something will happen with her and I down the road, she's one of my good friends. I'll keep attraction and interest up though.
