So I approached this girl and it went great. Almost too great. As I walked to her we made eye contact and I smiled. She smiled back but it wasn't a regular smile. She had this huge cheese with teeth and all. It through me off so I just walked past. I little later we talked and it was kind of awkward but she was super polite. Almost overly polite, so she apologize/blamed herself for the awkwardness.
Anyway, the first day I saw her she was surrounded by four or five guys and they were so obviously in the friend zone so at the time it was reassuring. But now, I look back at that moment and think about how easy it is to get trapped in that zone with her.
How do I stay out of the friend zone with a girl like this? Permanently?
