So I've met this girl through my work; I've known her for about two months now. I have the feeling she's got a crush on me but maybe I'm reading the signals wrong, so I need opinions.
Here are the signs I've interpreted as clear interest:
When I got her number, I didn't need to ask for it; she handed me her phone when I was talking on mine and had me enter in my number. I think she was a bit shy about it since she avoided eye contact and didn't say anything, which is probably why she did it while I was already in a conversation.
During a business meeting, one of the speakers joked that she was together with another guy who was sitting with her, and she was giving me some intense eye contact while denying it. This was in a really PACKED room too, so I remember it as significant.
She gives me kino, but kind of shy kino - briefly grabbing my forearm, or touching my shoulder.
We met yesterday for work training and she was dressed fairly provocatively - tights and a low cut shirt. It was the first time I'd seen her out of business clothes, and yeah, damn. She isn't my usual type - I don't typically find black girls attractive, but she's one of the exceptions. She's also much younger than I am - 18 where I'm 29.
OH, and while we were talking over a late dinner yesterday, she implied that she a) was a virgin and b) didn't like dating black guys, though she usually has an entourage of them because of our work. She also showed me texts of a guy who was trying and failing to flirt with her.
I feel as though I'm just "coming into my power" in the PUA lifestyle so I'm not looking for commitment right now. I'd definitely do something FWB with her, so long as it doesn't get in the way of work stuff, but she seems pretty innocent so I doubt that's what she's looking for. She isn't in my direct group so it wouldn't be as awkward if we started something.
I plan to chat and flirt with her a bit more, maybe try some kino tests, and see where it takes me, but at the same time I'm leery since she is very young and if she's that inexperienced, a mistake here could really fuck up her views on relationships going forward. She already has unstable grounding - her mom is apparently very controlling, and her dad is not around. Should I just steer clear altogether?
And signals-wise, am I pretty much reading the situation right, or am I overanalyzing? My gut tells me that she's into me.
