I'll try to keep this as short as possible...
So after dating a relatively short time we more or less broke up. I go NC for a few weeks, she initiates first contact, and we talk a bit here and there over the next few months. But it was my behavior after the fact that sealed it - I chased, came off as desperate and needy I'm sure. I make the ultimate mistake of telling her exactly how I feel about her, she flat out says it's not mutual and I'm sure it scared her right off...about two weeks later she texts me and asks if she saw me drive by her (we live very close), it definitely wasn't me though. She goes right into chitchat, we end up going out for lunch. That was about two and a half weeks ago, and we've been chatting casually since then.
She texts me this past monday afternoon saying that she has a few days off if I wanted to do something. I was busy that day but said we would get together. We continue to lightly text back and forth that night. Then she texts me around 1 AM asking if I was still awake. I was so I responded, and she says she rented a movie. I ask how it is...15 minutes later she replies "good but I'm going to bed."
Again yesterday she texts me asks me what I'm doing, we end up spending a few hours together just running errands. Conversation was light and friendly, didn't get into anything about the past. She was playful but not outright flirty. But she made it a point on two separate occasions to say that she wasn't seeing anyone, but also that she "couldn't even think about dating right now." (Friend of mine said that she's on okcupid)
I drop her off, she texts me later saying she had a lot of fun ect, ect.
Feels like I'm making some progress here - I mean, I can't imagine she would communicate and hang out with me knowing how I feel about her if she only wanted to be friendly, right?
Can anyone interpret/decipher any of this?
