Juicy gos topic and your thoughts?

I have this female friend I met at a previous job and we've been friends for 2 years now. And talk text often. She's a bit elusive on meeting though.

So I asked her into few months after we met let's date, she stayed friends and the next time was a month ago, a week before moving to the new job. She stayed friends kept it up, didn't think much of it.

She'd been going a bit quiet before for as I started my new job last week and last week we met for dinner in a group and there was this uncomfortable feeling as we both walked to the train.

I was blunt asked her what's wrong and if this is not working.

She was saying she's uncomfortable with communication and that she was just thinking about that I like her more than a friend.

I definitely addressed issues the later topic of me liking her had come from a different topic. But harshly said no I don't (I felt it's a trap as she came from a topic where I raised well others can think whatever ). Addressed topics like hey well I do take time and stuff. But okay if she wants to go her choice.

I didn't check my phone till the next day, I thought she was gone. Saw she wrote a bunch of angry questions. But one thing kept striking me why did she keep bringing up the liking thing again that it makes her uncomfortable, also she pointed out that I had tested her with a bluff saying I have a date (not proud).

Just said hey get back to you later. I took another day to cool down and let her as well. Politely said hey can keep the friendship as she pointed, cleared questions out taking a back step.

As to the liking question again I said you yeah you told me I accepted. And at then as to pointing I was lying I said yeah I hate it as well and that I knew it breaks the trust, also that probably a reason we won't work. That she can keep the friendship if she wants to as she had pointed earlier, it's her choice.

Why did she ask me a few times about the liking thing and kept brining it up if she didn't feel that way about me?

Ps between meeting her on the train and asking her what's up I took a few days of slow communication.
