So this girl i know calls me today, and asks if i want to hang out. I havent heard from her for like 6 months, and we get together and chill with a movie and some chinese food all afternoon/evening. not really talking much about her ex, just catching up. we had hooked up one night when we were drinking, but nothing much after that. I must say, i look better now, and im pretty sure she noticed. my main question is how can avoid being her emotional tampon. I wouldnt mind trying to get together with this girl, but am not very good at that sort of thing, and get very self-conscious around girls i like. i am fine with helping her through her time, but if i could maybe get together with her, i think it might go somewhere as well. also, i dont just want to be used by her, just to keep her mind busy when she has nothing better else to do.
