I'm going to summarize the situation a bit, otherwise this could be even longer than it will probably already be. Around the beginning of the year, a girl in our student club, who I did find attractive, was showing some obvious signs of interest towards me. At the time, I was already involved in a relationship, but I broke up with the now ex-girlfriend about a month after meeting said girl (the break-up was due to other reasons which I will not go further into). I didn't see this girl very much after my break-up as she wasn't attending the club meetings nearly as often now due to work. I did, however, talk with her online every so often. Not long before the school year ends (a few months later), I run into her at her workplace while she's working (she works at a cafe-type place). I order a few things from her and ask her to join me when she's not so busy and has a little down time, which she does. We chat for a bit and catch up, during which I still see some slight signs of interest in her body language. It may be important to note here that she is a pretty shy person to those she doesn't know well and my guess is that she's even more shy around someone she's attracted to, so her signs of interest were a bit subtle. In this particular case, I frequently caught her looking at me and quickly averting her eyes. She also wouldn't maintain eye contact for very long during our conversation. In any case, I tell her we should catch up some more another time, hand her my phone, and she punches in her number. Unfortunately, finals was just around the corner and so I never called to try to set up a date. I know I really should've either way, but that's in the past now. Summer rolls around and though we're both sticking around, our schedules are very conflicting (she's taking summer classes for several weeks and working, and I'm doing a full-time internship during the day with a teaching job some evenings). I run into her once on campus, we talked for a bit and again noticed some subtle signs (the averting eyes again, and she stood pretty close to me, facing towards me the entire time). I did call her one evening not long after to try to set something up and left a voice message. She didn't call back, but responded to me online a few days later telling me she's home for a few weeks and that we should "hang out" when she returns. We still chat a bit online about once every week or other week. As the time approaches when she's returning, I ask her online if she'd like to grab dinner while she's back and she agrees, though we don't set up a definite date and time (my mistake there). She finally gets back into town a few weeks ago. I called her and left a voice message. A week later, she still has not responded (phone or online) and so I leave her a brief online message telling her contact me if she's still interested in dinner. Several more days pass without any response and by now, I'm almost certain that she's just no longer interested. A few days ago, however, she calls me and asks if I would like to join her for dinner with two of our mutual friends from the student group (both females) that night. We all go out and have a good time catching up with one another's summers and just chatting about anything. During this time, she doesn't display as many signs as before. End of the story for now. Here are a few of my thoughts: I guess the most likely situation is that she's lost interest over time, but her shyness (which I probably didn't convey very well) has me second-guessing myself a bit. Though she didn't show too many signs at dinner, I think it may have been that she didn't want to expose herself in front of our friends. On the other hand, it took her a very long time to get back to me and when she did, it was to have dinner with two others as well. But again, this could be due to the shyness. So here I am now, asking for your opinions on the matter. I know it's impossible to fully comprehend the entire situation based on an online account and I did leave out a lot of details, but I'm just looking for some outside perspective. I almost feel as though I'm using the excuse of her shyness to cover up the fact that she's just not interested in me anymore. What are your thoughts? If you would like to go further into something, please let me know. Thanks for your time.
