So, Im in this very tough situation, and I feel I have exhausted myself thinking about it - so I can use all the help/advice that I get. I have a friend that I have known for 6 years, and he is a very dear friend to me. His mother and father divorced a couple years back, and his mother just recently met another gentleman. This gentleman has 2 beautiful daughters, 20 and 24 years old. Since I met these girls, I have kind of had a thing for the 24 year old - she is smart, sweet, caring, attractive, and we share very very deep similarities - it's almost scary. As a group(my friends and her friends) we have all gone out about 5 or 6 times in the 6 months their parents have been together. This going out based mainly on my friend(her soon to be step-brother) and her making these arrangements. It just seems that everytime we go out, we click so much, and there is this glow I feel that is in indescribable. The unfortuante thing is, my friend is very jealous and overprotected and his insecurities shine when he constantly harrasses me with questions regarding my feelings for her. And the story begins..... This past friday night, my guy friends and I decided to hit a club for some dancing and drinks. We had a great time, and as we were leaving the club, we happened to run into his step-sister and a few of her friends. They coincidentally were partying at the same club but we did not see them at all that night. They seemed very quick to invite us back to the house they were at so we could all share a few post party night caps. So we were all on our way and we met at this townhouse. After having a few drinks, this girl approaches me and says "hey i'm going out for a smoke, wanna come" So I went. As we were outside, she began to tell me that she has always had a thing for me, and that she was telling her "step-brother" that she found me very attractive and wanted to get to know me. Funny, I said, "he never told me a damn thing, but I know he doesn't agree with anyone dating anyone close to him, he just gets very insecure about it, and perhaps selfish might I add" So we had a little chuckle about it and then went back inside. As the night was slowly coming to an end we had all agreed to get some early breakfast before we crashed, and I quickly went to use the bathroom. As I was heading out, I heard my friend venting to her friend about how I was an unstable guy; very chauvenistic, and pig-headed, and that I was only looking for one thing. He continued to tell her that I had 5 girls at one time and messed with all their heads, and that I was not the one for his sister, he was so against it. I couldn't believe all the lies I was hearing, no of this was true. In fact, I am a sweet, caring, and soft-hearted guy, who wants nothing but the best for my girlfriends, and I respect every girl I am ever with. I then heard her friend say "quit cock-blocking, let them be happy" That night I did not approach him about it, as he was very intoxicated, and I was also slightly drunk. As we were about to leave to eat, his half-sister offered me to take a ride with her instead of the other couple so I went along, along with her brother. On the way, he began to throw up heavily and we had to take him home. That didn't stop us from grabbing some breakfast. While at the restaurant we talked about how we seemed so perfect for eachother, and as we left the restaurant we held hands. Next stop was a drop off at my house. As we got to my driveway, we sat for another 2 hours, getting to know eachother - it was perfect. As I was about to leave, she put her number in my cell phone and insisted I call her, saying that she always answers her phone, and practically sleeps with it in her bed. I then gave her a hug and left. As I was about to go to sleep, I sent her a surprise text message to tell her how much of a good time I had, and that I couldn't wait to do it again. She immediately wrote back saying she couldn't wait also, and made sure I was to call her that evening. So I did, that evening around 7 pm I called her....no answer. I thought that must be weird because she sais she never misses calls. So I went out that night, and when I got home around 11pm, I sent her a text message saying goodnight, and for her to call me tomorrow....no reply, no call. I then received a call from my friend(her step-brother) saying that he spoke to her, and she said that she had an amazing time with me. I followed by asking if he had said anything false behind my back, because she wasn't calling me or answering my calls. He denied everything. Now I am worried. I mean, I really fell for this girl and I know she fell for me, but something tells me, my snake of a friend told her some false things about me, and she listened because she knows him far better than she knows me. He won't admit to anything, and she won't call me, and I am confused as hell!! Here is what I propose to do: Wait it out for 2 more days, and if there is still no call, then I can a)call her once more to try and get a hold of her. Then again that may make me look like a desperate stalker. OR b) Drive to her house, and attempt to talk to her in person(Again, maybe a stalker issue) OR my favourite c)wait a couple days, send her a dozen lillies, and on the card write "these reminded me of you. Have a sweet day" and my name. I don't know what to do....I would appreciate all opinions, guys and girls and please keep this serious, I'm pretty hurt here. Much appreciated, THANK-YOU!
