Hey guys long time lurker and first time poster, thought I'd join given my recent conundrum. I met this girl about a yr and a half ago up at school through a friend. I got her number and we had playful texting times but at the time she was dating a guy and then a few months later I met my now ex gf. Over the time I dated I still stayed in contact with this girl and every once in a while we would hang out alone but I never pushed because of my gf.
Now fast forward I'm single and so is she and we still talk but not on a day to day basis. When we do we have good convos and are still playful with teasing and such about little competitions we have. She's only dated a few guys and is somewhat shy/reserved so she just kind laughs if I throw in some sexual comment. So i'm a little lost there.
She texted me a couple weeks ago and asked me if I wanted to go to a concert with her, which I couldnt because I was out of town. Instead I told her I was going down to my friends place in the florida keys for the start of lobster season (shes always wanted to try it) last week and asked if she wanted to come (6hr drive for her). She didnt know any of the people we were staying with she literally only knew me and agreed to come so possible ioi?
She said yes so she met me down there earlier this week we had a fun time there but she's a shy girl so it was really hard for me to pinpoint any obvious IOI's while we were out. Anyway the one day we were out on the boat and my friends cousin who we were staying with assumed we were dating, the convo went like this. I was not around for this, cousin only told me what happened afterwards.
Cousin: So how long have you and ***** been dating?
HB: giggling, we're not dating were just friends.
Cousin: Oh I'm sorry I just assumed, is there anything going on between you two?
HB: Well **** just got out of a relationship with his gf so we'll see what happens now.
To me, and maybe I'm reading too much into it she could have shot down the idea to my buddies cousin right there as no one else was around but idk. We have plans to hang out when I get back to school but we have had those before this all went down so idk how to play it. How do you all think I should go along with it?
