So I've been seeing a girl at work for 3 weeks now. We've kind of known each other as acquaintances for about 4 months. Her friend asked her if she thought about dating me and her reply was yes. I told her friend that I was totally down to try as this girl was stunning. So we started flirting over thanksgiving break and I started getting good morning texts from this girl every morning. So after holiday break, I asked her to our first date and she said yes! it was absolutely great! - also followed by 4 other dates since then! So on our second date I learned that her ex boyfriend of 2 years broke her finger and slammed her into a wall. awful. But I started holding her outside when she was cold. People around the office noticed and knew we were a thing and we both had no problem in denying it. Well a Couple of weeks ago her friend told me that before we started talking, she was talking to another guy. I took this up with her and she was completely honest with me, she said, "Yes I am talking to another guy. It's not serious, I promise..." and I was not totally okay with it but I went with it. So a couple of weeks went by and I was getting, "good morning handsome" and messages like that every morning. But our last date a couple of days ago I tried to kiss her and she smiled and turned away and grabbed my face and told me sweetly, “Not yet” with a smile. (That threw me off) Anyway, tonight I had to ask her, "Do you see anything with us in the future" and her response was "I do. I like you a lot. But I can't commit myself into something serious yet. I'm still recoperating. I'm hurt. But that doesn’t mean no… I just need time. I can’t jump into anything serious right now.” I told her, “Listen darling. I need you to be completely honest with me and real. i’m not going to yell at you and i’m not going to be angry.” her reply was, “I mean everything. I do like you. I just need time. I don’t want anything to change with me and you, I just can’t dive into anything serious right now.” and I understood. Now I’m feeling friend zoned and confused. If she was into me this much why not be with me?
