Ok, this will be kind of long and I appreciate those who take the time to read it. Last night....I called this girl I had known for awhile. We've always been friends but I have always had a crush on her. I asked her if she wanted to go out that night. She said yes. Later that night I called her to confirm that we were still on, and she agreed. I replied with "So i'm excited for our date tonight" and she responded with "I know, I am too!" So as of right then, i'm pretty excited. So I go get her, she gives me a hug when she see's me and we start the night. We head out to plaza (tons of shops/christmas lights/etc www.countryclubplaza.com). I ask her where she'd like to eat and she responds by saying she'd like to try this place. So we go put our name down and the wait is almost 2 hours. No problem, we used this time to shop. We went to many places and had what in my opinion was an excellent time. We went to a girls clothing shop and she asked what I thought something looked on her. I said if you like it then you should get it, and her response was "No, I want to know if you think I look good in it?" And I replied "well in my opinion, yes" so she purchased a few items that I gave approval too. She even pointed out several items that "Looked extremely good on me" After we left there, we went down to starbucks and she bought me hot chocolate and her some coffee thing. After walking around for awhile longer, it was time for dinner. So we proceed to dinner and were both laughing/having a great time. Dinner was fabulous Right after we sat down a blues band began to play. Dinner was awesome and I footed the bill. It was around 30 dollars. Not too bad. So after dinner were walking back towards the car because we were going to see a movie (fred claus) and she spotted someone she knew. I had never met these people before but it was the introduction that got me.... "This is my friend Brandon" I was pretty upset with this, we were on a date and i'm being introduced as a friend? just brandon would have been better, but she had to throw in friend. I tried not to let it bother me and we proceeded to the movie. We got to the movie and because in my mind, its still a date, I had no problem paying. Looking back, it was probably a mistake, but oh wells. So the movie is great, or I actually liked it. We leave to go home and have a great conversation along the way, so right now i'm feeling pretty good. We had a great night, she was smiling, laughing, and I felt like I made a great impression.....if that were the case, would I be typing this??? So anyways, I drop her off, she sends me a text that says "your such a great friend" and I replied with "Friend? This was a date." she responded with "We are friends brandon" and I said "was this not a date to you?" and she said "no, we were hanging out as friends" I said "well you had to know this was a date, you know I like you" she said "yeah, I"ve always known you liked me" I was really really really shocked by this.....So I called my friend to get his take and he was pretty shocked as well. She told him that she never once mentioned it as a date. Then he asked her what I was paying for everything if it wasn't a date and she replied "well I just thought he was being generous, besides it wasn't that much money anyways" so he then asked her this...... "what if you were over here with your friend, and brandon showed up with some girl, would you be jealous?" and her response "I am not sure if i would be" what the hell kind of answer is that? So my questions/rants are if she thought this was friends why would she not even OFFER to go dutch, rather just let me pay? Why would she ask if I thought she looked good in certain things if it wasn't a date? Why would she tell me friend that? What should I do? I didn't talk to her at all day, and i'm really mad about the whole situation, so I don't even plan to talk to her for awhile. Please OT, help.
