Little bit of a back story here. I have never been single my entire adult life. About 6 months ago I broke up with my girlfriend of 8 years.
I have not attempted to get in the game since as I knew I had a lot of catching up to do to compete with with true PUA's. The amount that I have learned since discovering these forums has been amazing.
Recently a new girl joined my team at work. Although she is an HB8 I had no intention of gaming her. Of course it is my job to help train new hires so I worked personally with her a lot.
She started by asking me a lot of questions via instant messenger. She slowly started mixing in casual conversation. Finally she gave me her number and told me to join her at a pool party one weekend. I didn't go to the party but we have been texting, talking on the phone, and have spent a lot of time together outside of work.
We flirt quite a bit but I honestly haven't escalated as much as I should (I've been undecided about getting involved with a coworker).
One night we were at her friends house playing some drinking games and she got really drunk. When we were leaving she was going to get a ride home with a friend but said she wanted to walk me to my car. We talked for a moment and then we leaned in for a kiss. It didn't feel right since she was so drunk so I pulled up and just hugged her.
She texted me the next day saying she was really hung over and didn't remember much from the night before. I told her what happened and at first she denied it happened. Then I just laughed and said I couldn't believe she was so freaked out about something so minor. She said she wasn't freaked out and that she was glad that it didn't happen because she would have wanted to remember it.
Then she hit me with the confusing part. She said "You are boyfriend material and I'm not girlfriend material. I'm trying to protect your feelings."
I think I may be interested in making her my girlfriend but I have no idea what she means by that. I know she casually dates and hasn't had a long relationship in the past. Am I completely friendzoned at this point? I don't know how to proceed from here.
