This will be long, go away if you're not bored. There's a girl I've been going to college with for a number of years now and we've always known each other socially through some mutual friends, but never really talked much. We are both in the same program so we have two classes and one clinical rotation together this semester. Since starting the clinical rotation, her and I have been talking a lot. A couple weeks ago a bunch of classmates, including her, and myself were supposed to go to a local fancy restaurant for lunch after clinical. Everyone wussed out and it ended up just being us two. We went, stayed there for a while and had a few drinks/talked, then went to a downtown casino, a bar and then went bowling. We spent about 9 hours together after the 8 we had been together sporadically during clinical. Last week during clinical she was basically attached at my hip, not in a bad way, I really enjoy being with her. I invited her to a friend's gig at a club this past weekend and she came, and they were doing a different club the next night and she came to that as well. She just left here a while ago after we had gone out and got some quick late dinner at a coney island. We had been studying for a test and just shooting the shit. She even left, went to her great-grandma's funeral, and came back earlier. But the catch, as you probably already noticed from the title, is that she has a boyfriend. They've been dating for about a year and a half but he lives 6 hours away so they rarely see each other. I've talked with her about her great-grandma a lot because of course a family death is never easy, and when she left tonight she was complaining about how she was pissed at her boyfriend because he hasn't talked to her a lot lately. I said now, if any time, should be when he talks to her more frequently and she said something along the lines of yeah, he's stupid. My buddies that did the DJ'ing both asked what's going on between us because both nights we were close together all the time. She told me some of her friends she ran into at one of the clubs asked if we were dating. She told me she told her friends that we're just friends from school and that's what I've been telling my friends too. I'm usually not the type to go asking OT for dating advice but this one has me stumped. I love hanging out with this girl and don't want to make a move and ruin, at the minimum, our friendship. If she gets scared of me even mentioning me liking her, our entire class is going to know about it and I'll never hear the end of it and it will make our classes/clinical together really awkward. On the other hand, if its reciprocal, she has a boyfriend and I've always held the belief "Once a cheater, always a cheater." I just cannot help but have really strong emotions for this girl. Let's hear what you guys have to say. Thanks.
