really? well just my opinion which might be totally wrong. that girl that rejected me I swear liked me. she would always come around me and smile at me and blush and i'd always catch her looking at me. then after a few months she stopped and started avoiding and ignoring me and when I asked her out months later she gave me her number but never picked up. I guess you are right, but if you wait too long she might get a boyfriend and forget you but that is different that being put in the friend zone. I know there was this other girl looking back now I know she was interested in me. she knew I liked her and she started avoiding and ignoring me at work (after her friends asked me if I liked her) and she was 21 (so not a kid lol). but anyways I never asked her out in the one year I worked with her and after she quit her friends would keep on coming to my work and telling me where she now works and asking me if I had contacted her. so I assume she liked me but I never did anything cus I was a big pussy and now she has a boyfriend.
