Am I sending mixed signals...?

edit: On second thought, maybe I shouldn't post this right now. I'll wait a month and see what happens.

Sorry and thanks.

    Based on what you've said, if I were in her place, I'd think you were, if not already interested in me, a pretty viable candidate for a relationship.

    If you get a chance in conversation to mention that you really aren't looking for a relationship right now, that'll be much less awkward than "[Name], you're awesome and attractive and I love hanging out with you, but I don't want to date you." You don't need to bust it out as soon as she does another casual touch, but you do need to get it across soon. That way, she'll be disappointed, but there will not be any job-wrecking drama.

    Okay, thanks. Sorry for deleting the post while you were reading it and thank you for the info - I think maybe you're right.

    Seeing 'Am I sending mixed signals' as a thread title and then finding that the first post had been basically edited to 'NM, don't worry about it' made me smile.

    No problem. Your goal here is not to drive her away, just to make sure she understands you don't want to date anyone (again, might not be true if you meet the right person; given the circumstances, though, it's far kinder to fib a little).

    I didn't think about this until you pointed it out, but got a chuckle out of it once you did. Well spotted.
