So I met this girl a few months ago, her name starts with an "M" so let's call her Mary. She had a boyfriend at the time we met. I wasn't into her at all and we just hung out sometimes and became really close friends to the point of us messaging each other a lot throughout the day (the friend zone). So we had been friends for a while and since she had a boyfriend I never really thought about anything more. So recently they broke up and I started having feelings which I probably had buried before but it came to the surface. I decided to tell her that I liked her. So I told her and she said that she thought that I had thought of her like a sister and that she thought of me like a brother. She said that she couldn't see herself with me like that but wanted to be friends. So I said ok and agreed. Then later I messed it up by telling her the feelings didn't go away and that I wanted more still. So she got mad and said that she thought we had cleared it out that we would be just friends. Which was true, we had cleared it out. She told me not to message her anymore and that she still likes her ex-boyfriend and isn't over him; but she said even if she was, she wanted to be just friends with me. But at this time she needs to sort her own stuff out and she doesn't want to talk to me. So I won't send any messages or anything. I'm sure she will be ok with me and we can be friends for sure. But now the issue is that I still like her. It's not that big of a deal where I would say either she has to be with me or we can't be friends. But I would rather be dating her than just friends; but would still rather be just friends than not friends. She is a trustable person and a good friend. Otherwise I've read a lot on this forum that people just recommend that u stop being friends, because what's the point. Now it's sort of messed up, I'm sure that she won't ever be into me because she said it rite. She just wants to be friends. But I dunno I would rather be more but friends is ok too. Any suggestions? Should I just be friends for a while and re-visit this later? Or should I just drop it altogether? I'm not too sure on what to do.
