So I have a group of about 12 friends at college and we all met about a year and a half ago and still all hang out together. The only time I ever hang out with anyone from the group is when we are all together. But the other day I went to out with just one of my closer friends in this group to the cinema and for a drink. I like her, but I am quite an awkward person and I think she gets that.
Anyway while we were out nothing really happened that made it clear that she likes me and I think I was slightly awakward [standard], but afterwards she texted me saying: "thanks for a lovely evening see you soon x"
Am I being optimistic in thinking that she might also like me as more than a friend?
P.s I also can't tell whether she knows that I like her or if she saw going out together as a date :/
