Should I back off? What is going on?
Most Helpful Girl
She's scared of being hurt.
The pain she has felt from her past relationships is allowing her defense to go up.
This is where you should step in and show her there's nothing to be afraid of, and that you truly care for her.
With time she will grow to trust that you won't.
But now she remains wary because she is used to hurt.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE

This would be a perfect time to give her some time to think about how she is reacting to you and how you should be reacting to her. Defiantly back off because if you start to pressure her, you'll lose her for sure. I'm certain she likes you, but girls have to look at almost everything about a guy before they start dating, and since you're co-workers, I suspect she's weighing the prospects of dating a co-worker. So to answer your question, yes, it is very normal for girls to back up and look at what she's feeling. This is your time to do the same.0THIS IS NOT RELEVANT ANYMORE
