Most Helpful Girl
Apparently, from the "lingo" you are jumbling around here, sweetie, she found this to be an awkward moment for her. Although it Appeared to be a "crush," was then, By her spelling it out and ---spilling her guts out----- to her work force friends, to be a blow to your ego when you found out that she didn't have fancy pants feelings for you, and now it has come down to This. By the sounds of things, You both got a "surprise" in the end.
I Do, however, blame her for indirectly leading You on, but perhaps instead of a "peck on the cheek" for her special day, you should have initiated a "shake of her hand." Ethics, more than etiquette, sweetie.
Girls, just like today's guys, are very unpredictable, to say the least. And now, you are finding yourself in a "tongue and red cheek" moment, where She is Not saying Anything but: "Don't email me, I'll email you."
Give it some time, and don't pressure her right now. She most likely will come around in her own sweet time. Although I see no big deal here, some girls are "closed mouthed" when it comes to guys who take them by surprise, and don't reciprocate easily--nor politely-----to a "forward friend." Let this be a lesson learned, from being burned, in the future.xx
