Need advice on this girl that's new to my social circle. She's my brother's girlfriend's best friend. She started hanging with the my group of friends about a month ago. She just moved back to the OC and just had her boyfriend, she was convinced she was gonna marry, breakup with her.
We've hung out a in a group a bunch of times, and she's actually a really sweet down to earth HB7/8.
I tease her all the time. Tell her she's annoying or a dork and she responds that I know I love her. She finds little reasons here and there to touch me or get close. She says I'm her favorite person in the circle of friends we hang out with. So I figured there was at least base line of attraction between us.
Issue is she seems to be reluctant to be one on one with me, and is never really hooked when we text.
She knows I've hooked up with one of her friends and I have a bit of a reputation for going after girls with boyfriends (more imagined and inflated than to do with reality or my skill.)
I've flirted with other girls in front of her and she's seen the HB8.5 I kiss closed (The Check Out Girl from my other post.) This I figured would increase my social proof and demonstrate I was desirable to women.
Now though I'm worried she may have gotten the impression I'm a player or something and that might be leading to her reluctance to be alone with me, since she's scared of being hurt again after what she just went through with her ex.
Am I reading this wrong? What are your thoughts?
