Ok now that I've actually typed this out it sounds like something of nothing, but I don't know, in real life it seems like more than what it is written down. Recently moved in (6 weeks ago) with a girl who we'll call Natalie. She was advertising a room in her house to rent out. I'm working in the area until September so went for a viewing, got on well, spoke everyday via text/e-mail and then I moved in. So in other words I'm just the lodger for 5 months. Anyway, sometimes I get a really good vibe from her and other times she can be a bit reserved. She even mentions about how she's not interested in having a boyfriend just yet and all the rest of it (the ex was an asshole). Anyway, she does a few things which make me sort of wonder 'hmmm, what's she thinking/what are her motives'. Obviously I know nobody can answer this but if I just give you a list of what she does perhaps you could tell me if these are usual signs of someone being interested: - She texts and e-mails a lot of the time I’m not in the house just to chat or whatever - Her conversational tone is very banter-based and seems to make an effort to chat - Recently she’s been more touchy/feely e.g. we were having a few drinks before going out on one last Saturday and she was playing around wrestling the remote control off me because I was putting on songs she didn’t like. - She insists I go out with her and her mates when they go out clubbing. Like last Saturday night I’d planned on chilling out on the on my Xbox and getting lost in a game or whatever. But her friends arrived and she was texting me from downstairs saying ‘come on down it’ll be fun’, ‘Stacey (edited friend’s name) wants to meet you!’ - And, this may just be really wishful thinking but when I was talking and dancing with Stacey on the night out, and when she had my undivided attention for periods of time I got the impression that Natalie wasn’t quite jealous but….she'd ‘noticed’ we were close if that makes sense. I’m sure you all know what I mean, they glance out of other corner of their eye, see something they think "urgh" about and then quickly turn and start speaking to someone else. This bit sounds slightly paranoid but you know how when someone sees something they don't like, if you're watching carefully you can see their real reaction before they very quickly 'cover it up' with something else? And it just makes me think well if that's making her feel slightly jealous then perhaps there is something? - Also her mother came to stay with us (she lives out of the country and had come back to visit). Me and her mother got on really well because I’m always really chilled, up for a laugh etc and when I was away one weekend she was texting me saying ‘my mother has just been on the phone to her friend saying how lovely you are! I guess I’ll have to put her straight!’ However, even if she did like me, I would assume she wouldn’t pursue anything while I living in the house as if it went sour it would make our living situation slightly awkward…. What do you all think? Just a friend? Maybe interested? Wishful thinking on my part? PS: By saying ‘wishful thinking’ I mean I do quite like her….. she’s attractive, she’s got exactly the same sense of humour as me and we get on really well…..so perhaps it’s just me exaggerating something that isn’t there. I also make her laugh all the time and she seems to quite like spending time with me, and also mentioned about how comfortable she's felt around me. She does complain about her ex though so I think I may have been friend-zoned lol.
