I was away from the object of my affection for two months. When we returned to school and she saw me for the first time she instigated a conversation, gave me her number and we made plans to hang-out together.It wasn’t a very eventful or exciting evening, but we got a chance to hang out together and talk – only we weren’t alone – she brought a guy friend with her. With two people it would have been an intimate bonding experience in the comfortable confines of my dorm-room, but with three people there was more pressure to entertain and less opportunity to talk one-on-one.My question is: did she bring the guy along to check me out, or to keep me at a distance? And if she is just playing it safe how do I convince her to spend some alone time with me?
