So me and this girl at my work have been talking/going on dates for 4 weeks now. She recently ended a extremely physically abusive relationship (involving broken bones) over the summer. She told her friends she liked me and thought I was cute. I found out that she was talking to another guy previously before we started talking. I asked her about it and she was honest and told me that it wasn't serious but she was talking to someone else and she didn't know where it was going. I continued to take her out, and treat her very sweet and gentle. I got good morning, handsome/sweetheart texts almost every morning as well as goodnight kisses on the cheek. This week she seemed to open up a little bit. I started massaging her and she loved it, she started tickling me and simple physical flirting (which is hard for her considering her past) Well, 2 days ago our mutual friend asked her what was going on with us and her reply was, "We're just friends for now... I told him that I need time to emotionally grow and I told him I was talking to someone else as well... but I do like him, a lot. He's very cute and sweet and I love that he is still trying... it's incredible" Well our mutual friend told me this... and I stopped talking to her that day. I didn't say goodnight. I just left quickly alone. Friday morning I said nothing and she liked one of my instagram photos. Later that day she walked in my office and sat down and I said hey and she sat and left after 5 minutes of quietness. At the end of the day, I sucked it up and walked into her office and said, "Hey. Have a great day today." and she smiled and said, "You have an amazing day today" and we smiled for a couple of seconds and I left. The thing is... I feel like I just WANT to love this girl. I want to show her what its like for a guy to treat her like a princess but... I don't know what to do. She likes me and loves that i'm trying... but she reiterated that she is talking to someone else... It's just sad.
