Hey guys. Got a long story here, but I guess you guys have heard this before. Bear with me. I have known this girl for almost 6 months now, while we were going through our teacher training. We have been good friends ever since and now we are working as teachers in the same district. Basically I give her ride home everyday and that's the time when we see each other. I can say that we have really great chemistry and really understand each other (blah blah blah). Anyway, about a month ago, I made a really clumsy confession and I guess I came off too strongly and she blushed and said "I didn't know what to say" and eventually she said the "let's be friend" crap. We stopped talking then for about 2 weeks and the last communication was my texting to her, saying that I am sorry for my foolishness and I'd hate to see a beautiful thing go away. Then another week passed and she texted me out of nowhere, saying that she's been busy and asking how I was. Our friendship thus resumed to this day and I guess we have regained our old closeness. Now I am still not 100% sure where her emotions lie. I have a feeling that she does have feeling for me, though she's still waiting things out. Or I could be all wrong, and just dreaming things up. But I am pretty tired of this friend zone crap and how do I get a good gauge of where we are and her feeling for me? I still offer her ride home everyday(we work like 20 miles away from our city), though I keep my contact with her to the minimum (only texting. No calling) to not come off as desperate. My friend's telling me that I am being used and I should just stop calling her. But I think it would be mean to leave her by herself to commute home (bus and bart) when I am just a few minutes away at work. I am afraid of another "confession" and I really feel that another subtler approach would be better. Forgive my whimpiness. I am no expert on this subject of love.
