I met a HB9 at a BBQ at my buddy's place (she's a friend of his wife). We talked and flirted a little, but I didn't number close because the women were in the house and the guys were out on the deck smoking cigars and I didn't realize she had left. A few days later she accepted my friend on Facebook, and I was able to get her number from her profile. We texted a few times that week and I saw her again the following weekend at my buddy's wife's birthday. We flirted some more and there was some very light kino but at the end of the night when I asked if she wanted to go out and continue this she shot me down and gave me the LJBF speech. I played it off like it was no big deal.
Over the next little while I friend zone her back. I tried to up my social proof, I talked about other girls and posted pics on Facebook of me out having fun. She immediately relaxed around me, we hung out often and she was receptive to my texts and even initiated contact. I thought my plan was working and she was coming around and I told my buddy I was going to make another play, but he told me he had overheard HB9 telling my wife how she feels more relaxed around me because I am acting like a friend and seeing other girls so she doesn't have to worry about me having a crush or making a move. So now I am stumped. This is the opposite of what I wanted. This has never happened before, every other time I have tried it has had the effect I wanted (getting out of the friend zone) Any advice as to how I can get out of the friend zone would greatly be appreciated. Thanks all!
