Because you know that she likes you and she asked you out on a date. What if she was a friend? If you would, why?

When I was a teen who thought more with his heart than the brain, yes I would have.
But luckily I realized that was a mistake in my teens itself.
NO cause that would be the worst mistake towards both her and me. it will save a lot of heartache (probably) later.
Even if she likes me and I don't. Pity is the worst and most degrading thing that you can show another person especially a friend. Pity comes out of the belief and feeling that the other person is incapable of taking care of self etc which by itself is a degrading thought. How can I call myself a friend to that person when I pity her. A friend is a person who is there when needed, gives his friend strength, motivation etc. By pitying, not only are you not providing the strength, motivation etc but also sending wrong signals and false commitments to her thus proving that you never were a friend cause in the end she'd be hurt.1
