Well, so there is this girl I have known for what is nearly an year now. She is nerdy, talkative and very similar to me, which makes the both of us pretty likable to each other. However, we have always stayed as friends and have never breached the topic of dating each other. Yesterday, however, while returning from a friend's birthday in a cab (our homes are nearby so it made sense for us to take the same cab), she placed her head on my shoulder and wrapped her hands around mine and closed her eyes for a brief while. Even when she woke up, her hand was still near mine and she maintained a very close distance between us inspite of there being ample of space available. Is this a sign of her wanting to date or something that girls just do with people they are close to? Thanks for reading through this!
