Well I'd first like to apologize for what I'm sure is a dead horse of a topic, but I needed to ask anyway. I've known this girl for a few years and we've been pretty good friends. I've asked her to dinner or movies in the past, but she's always held firm that she doesn't think of me as anything more than a friend. The fact that I can't accept that gives me the feeling that I just shouldn't accept that. I'm there for her when she goes through rough relationships and I've given her advice on more than one occasion. She always comes around to listening to me and being thankful that she did. Sometimes I think she's flirting with me, but I can't tell if it means anything or if she is just being herself with a good friend. For instance, at her house the other night my phone fell out of my pocket and she took it and placed it down the back of her sweat pants, knowing full well that I would be happy to retrieve it, and she only playfully resisted, giggling the whole time. Later on as we were watching a movie, she laid back, put her head on my arms, and watched the remainder of the movie like that. She also asks me personal questions about her appearance and I compliment her frequently. Am I kidding myself or is she actually flirting? Should I give up and admit that I'm bound to be stuck in the "friend zone" with this girl? Please help.
