Time progressed and she began saying things like don't make me jealous, if you were gay would you be my girlfriend (I said yes and she said yay) I took all those in jest as her joking around particularly because she had said no homo.
Before she left, is when I though she might be serious. We never texted much, rarely. we mostly saw each other in person a few times a week but out of the blue she'd message me I love you. she did this a few times. she'd tell in personshe wanted to snuggle/cuddle and called me her girlfriend even sometimes to our friends. She'd always hug me tight, arms around my neck, and hold the hug for a good 10 seconds.
yet I never reciprocated much back, or flirted with her in any sense other than hugging back or playing a long with her jokes. the most I ever did was text HER I love you she said it made her day! but that was the most.
I often wonder if she seriously developd a small crush on me and then after she left gave up on me liking her back because I never took initiative?
The reason I wanna know is because I often second guess myself of when someone is interested. although it was a girl in this case, I may miss out on a guy because I don't believe someone is interested in me.

Definitely sounds like she is interested in you as more than a friend.
I think she is trying to be subtle about it in a way to kind of feel you out without scaring you.
I had the same thing happen to me with several girls, and I found that it's not too good to "joke" around if you're not interested, because some people can't establish the difference.
