This past Saturday night was great in the moment. In retrospect, it was incredibly awkward. After a few days, I still don't know to make of what happened.
BACKGROUND: Somewhat recently, I met Girl A who I clicked with immediately. We flirt often and she initiates a good amount of Kino. She also appears to place a tremendous amount of trust in me (personal details, etc.). The issue? She's in a LTR. A close friend of mine noticed it on Facebook and showed me. Based on the way she and I interact and the fact she has never brought up her boyfriend, I was convinced this relationship was weakening. I became even more sure of my belief when Girl A said she'd be down to get a drink once she gets off at a decent hour (we work late hours, she's had to go home on off-days because of a family tragedy). My friends laughed at me. As you're about to read, I might have last laugh.
On Friday, the same friend noticed that Girl A took down her relationship status. The same day, a girl friend of mine showed me a text of Girl A mentioning how she was going to spend time with her boyfriend that night. So, two conflicting actions.
Saturday was the moment of truth. A couple friends and I went out to grab a drink late after work. Girl A eagerly asked me if she could join. Said she was bringing a friend, and texted me a few times to ask which bar I was going to. A few minutes after I met with my friends at the bar, Girl A shows up - with the guy who was the bf. I believed my time had come to an end and braced for the bad news. Until she introduced him to us as her FRIEND.
Girl A and the "friend" didn't talk to one another the entire time. They sat on opposite ends of the table. She didn't even look at him. Meanwhile, she and I hit it off, while also having a good time with the rest of the group. The "friend" was nice enough, but was rather quiet. He only really spoke when I or another friend initiated the conversation. Because he lives about 800 miles away (was staying with her obviously, but left early Sunday) and he didn't really know any of us, I picked up his tab. Felt it was the classy thing to do.
Still confused by what happened the next day, Sunday, I was trying to figure it all out. I ran into Girl A and said the previous night was great, and it was nice to meet her friend/boyfriend. She immediately looked me in the eye and made it clear that "he's just a friend." She continued to be her usual self around me the rest of the time. At one point, she told me the "friend" told her later that I'm a great guy. Umm...???
There are simply so many questions. He flew in to see her (even though she was working both days he was here), but they're "just friends" now? They both came out, but didn't talk the entire time? The day before, she told my girl friend that they were dating? Does any of this relate to me?
A girl who was out with us (dating my friend) and my girl friend eerily came to the same theory: Girl A and the guy were fighting. Because they were dating for a little while, he flew up to see her to try and figure things out/save the relationship, but she dumped him. Out of niceness, she brought him out with her.
What do you think?
