    Interpreting signs

    I will try to brief: I’m in large city/am a young professional. Recently went to an alumni event with some colleagues, met a girl that I knew from school but hadn’t really had a chance to get to know well. We went out after in a group had drinks/ and ended up back at her condo after holding hands coming back from the club. We talked for hours and did hook up (not in the crudest sense but you can imagine).She mentioned she isn’t huge on texting but we texted every few days since then and went back to our own cities for the Christmas period. I asked her to come to dinner with me and we then went for dinner last saturday– she seemed very nervous and talkative (took 40 minutes just to order because of our conversation). We then left together and walked nearly 5 K home (instead of using Uber). We then held hands the entire walk home talking about a range of issues. I walked her back to her Condo, hugged and kissed her on the cheek with her saying “See you soon!?”– Appreciate thoughts-

    Additionally, she texted me the following morning mentioning a place she liked for brunch “next time./thanking me for dinner. Have texted slightly since then, she had plans this past saturday and was on the road sunday so couldn’t do anything this weekend. Hoping for next. It seems she has a fairly wide circle of friends– which is good. Mine is slightly smaller since I am new to the city. Does it seem like I am in the right to think she is into me? I don’t want to come across too strong but I want her to know I am really interested. The hand holding strikes me as really surprising this soon- most people indicate it means affection/interest.

    Thanks for any insight provided.

    She’s absolutely interested. If you like this girl, just be honest and straightforward. She’s probably wondering the same thing, by the way. Keep the communication flowing, and ask her out again.

    Thanks for the quick responses all- appreciated. Called her yesterday- she wants to take me for Japanese food for my birthday actually. (my birthday is next thursday)

    I definitely want to see her a lot more- but trust takes time to build, slowly, as you all know well I’m sure.

    yes.. trust (and anything) takes time.
    this is why its best not to get too ahead of ourselves and think about the future. just enjoy the here and now and let all of that take care of itself – VERY SPECIFICALLY because it takes time.

    time to really know somebody
    time to see how somebody truly lives
    time to see how somebody deals with both the ups and downs (anybody can seem perfect during the good times…)
    time to see how somebody deals with all sorts of situations and what they’re turly like when they let down their guard.

    so just enjoy. it sounds great! she sounds like a good one!

    great news my friend.. great news!
