    Unintentionally hitting on a new friend/neighbour. What to do now?

    I got a nice neighbour a few days back. We started talking and she seemed pretty interested for a friendship (and I too). Then, suddenly, she started to avoid me. Considering this, I went over our interactions and realised that I was too excited for this friendship and unintensionally showed very obvious signs of hitting on her even though I knew that she had a boyfriend. Now, as we are neighbours and considering our situation, we will have to interact every now and then, the solution I am looking for is to somehow bring her to a comfortable zone around this place and me. I don’t expect to regain friendship(even though that would be a plus). There are two things I thought of doing

    1) Do not try to contact her and in some days, she will probably think that I am not going to mess around anymore.
    2) Apologize and make clear that I never intended to hit on her. It was due to my sheer dumbness when it comes to interactions with women.

    Any thoughts?

    Neither of those are great options, just strike up a normal conversation with her again and let her see for herself.
