I apologize for the long question in advance
I'm terrible at reading women and flirting and dating etc, and I'm trying to get better at it. I thought this girl was interested in me at first, but then rejected me and now still acts the same as before
I don't know her all that well. I just have 3 classes a week with her, we sit together and talk before/after for a few minutes.
Before asking her out last week, she'd always sit next to me, she always holds eye contact with me, her pupils are dilated, she plays with her hair a lot, leans in towards me when talking at the start of class, glances at me every now and then during lecture, always starts putting on lip-chap/hand creams/playing with her hair during class and all of this is so distracting and I THOUGHT she may have been interested. So before the spring break I asked for her number and she gave me that no problem.
So I'm thinking 'OK she likes me, ill text her and we'll go out'. I asked what she was doing wed. or Thurs. evening and she just said 'I have plans all week'. Just brushed me right off.
So then this week everything is back to normal and she is still doing all of these things, still sits with me and smiles when she sees me like nothing happened - and its her eyes that are really distracting me.
She seems really shy, and doesn't seem to have a really flirty personality so I can't figure this out. Am I reading body language wrong? After reading so many answers here from you guys, I thought for sure she might have been interested just based on this body language. I can't tell when a girl is interested or not, I felt like such an idiot asking her out. Maybe she has a boyfriend? She texts people once in a while during class, maybe its her boyfriend? But she never ever mentions him and when I ask what she did over the weekend its just 'worked and didn't do much'. I figured if she had one she would have told me when I asked if she was available during the evening...

Ask her out to lunch that day or to grab a coffee or to plan some study time together. Everyone has plans for the weekends (usually family related) and seriously when in school the evenings are not great times for hooking up seeing how everyone is usually studying around this time or catching up on some prime time television for relaxing.
When I'm on the go during the day is when I have the most free time to do a short break here and there because my body is on a schedule. I think it would be great to stop thinking about school for an hour during the day just to kick back and talk with a person I like. Just remember that most people have a routine every day so don't go overboard with the taking up all her time.0
