I met a girl in an improv class a few months ago, and although she was cute, I wasn't too interested at the time and we didn't really talk to each other, aside from some occasional improv with the group. The classes ended. Recently I was at a bar with my buddy, and the girl was there with some guy. I assumed it was a date and didn't care much, plus, from afar I wasn't sure it was her, although we made eye contact for a few seconds. The night kept its course until, to my surprise, the girl came to talk to me while my friend was taking a piss. We talked for about 3 minutes and I discovered we might have some unexpected common interests. She told me we should hang out, maybe with some other people from the improv class, and basically gave me her number as she didn't have her cellphone with her. She then told me her "friend" was alone and she had to get back to him.
Now most of the time I really prefer calling as I don't find texting very masculine in this context, but from previous experiences with girls often too busy to answer, I tried it, although I'm not a fan, especially long text conversations. I'd rather get to know people in person. So I was rather direct and suggested we should meet for a drink some time in the week-end.
She said "Hey!! Yes I would really like to! Unfortunately I'm overworked.. maybe Friday , not too late?" I agreed and suggested a place, as I was free. She then said "Ok! I'll reconfirm :)"
Then today, I got an offer to replace a musician for a good paying gig, and although it's not my primary occupation, I choose to take it, seeing as she hadn't confirmed yet and seemed to have a lot of work to do, I suggested we should try again next week. She answered "Ok, thanks for the heads-up! Have fun :)"
Now I wonder if she's just being polite, if from the beginning she just wanted friendship or if she's genuinely interested. I don't care much for sex, but I usually don't make female friends as a personal choice.
I'm not really actively looking for anything myself, but this girl seems interesting, and I'd like to get to know her a bit more. But no one likes wasting their time
