Well, I did hang out with this girl I liked, that liked me, but I didn't know, I found out because she was jealous of this other girl that was getting too close to me for her liking. She wouldn't leave me alone, not in the stalker way, but in the can't read the I'm not into you vibe, we became friends, but I didn't like her touching me or looking me in the eyes because she was giving of this I want you vibe that was uncomfortable. I was probable very careful to be reeeaaaally friendly and sometimes mean so she would get the hint and stop crushing on me I guess the girl I had liked had picked up on it and avoided me after that.
I personally wouldn't so not to risk leading the girl on. Not all guys are that considerate. If I was interested she'd know and I would make it very clear. Otherwise, if I sense that there is more that the girl is looking for I would let her know I wasn't interested.
If she likes me and I liked her back: flirting and baking food for her (if in college or something of the sort, work, etc) daily, I would also after a time so I got to know her better tell her of my feelings for her and wait for the hammer to crush me or other.
If she liekd me and I didn't feel the same way. I would tell her something liek this; "Your a great friend and I hope to always be by yourside as you have mine, as a friend." If she cries or gets hurt becasue I'm her friend I will comfort her, but sex IS NOT COMFORT.
I love hanging out with girls alone, becasue I feel more liek myself talkign to someone who is interesting and has a different take on life - while in the miliart I would always go off base and find people to talk with, just becasue it was another human, becasue he/she breath the same air, drink the ssame water, and have feelings and love.
Well if my leg accidentally touches a girl, I'm not going to just yank it away that's sort of rude, as sneakily as it got there is as sneakily you remove it. Guys who are comfortable with you and get in your space zone isn't doing it to be friendly, you are on his list, just not the top is what you your situation sounds like. If there's a cute girl you can be cool with that is kinda cute but your interest lie elsewhere, nothing wrong with becoming friends and getting to know the new girl, just in case? Just don't get too close or its friend zone.
Of course. I'm in a relationship, and want to keep my new friend in a platonic relationship. She is very nice, caring and thoughtful towards me, and would love for our friendship to flourish. She knows I am taken - it's not like I'm taking her on a cruise or around the world.
