Shes one of my cousins friends from college and I really got to know her better this semester.She talks with other guys like its nothing but when she's around me or when were alone, she's quiet. I'm kinda a shy person but I wasn't when I was around her sometimes.We would text each other a lot and at time times, I thought she sent me mixed messages. She would stare at me when I wasn't looking and when I looked at her she would smile,the body language was there, every time I seen her I gave her a hug,our knees would touch and she wouldn't move it..i was pretty sure she liked me but I could never get her alone to tell her how I felt. So yesterday I helped her with a school project and after that I was prepared to tell her how I felt but she was busy so I went home. I couldn't take it anymore so I sent her a text saying "you know I sometimes feel nervous around you right lol" and she said "lol umm do you like me or something" and I said "yeah but id rather tell you in person but I felt like I never had the chance" because friends were around all the time, and she didn't respond. So I hit her up a couple hours ago saying I'm sorry if I scared her off and I don't want things to be awkward but then she says she fell asleep and only looks at me a sweet guy, but a friend. She never called me that ever until then. Then I said thanks for being honest with me and she said "youre my friend. I, wouldnt lie to you" , so now I feel like sh*t because I thought we were close on having something and now its gone. I feel horrible.
