I recently got a friend request from a girl. I did not know her but still accepted it. I wrote her a message aski if she knew me or something. she replied and said it was a mistake but when I asked can we still be friends, she said yes and told me her name. after that I said I think we can become really good friends. she said yes that's no problem and gave me her number. now I think this is weird because this happen before and I got another number the same way without asking for it. is this a sign she likes me or simply being friendly?

Why do you wonder about this? So what?

It's the beginning of a new friendship.

Enjoy it.

@cornelljdav,
How can she "like" you when the two of you have never, ever met? You are imagining something that is not there. She is being friendly. So be friendly back.

That was my question. And why would you strike up a relationship this way? God, you gotta wonder what's happening with young people these days. It's so weird.

It's not so hard.

I liked Set before I met him.

I'm pretty sure Diane liked dys before she met him.

There are quite a few people I initially met online that I liked well before I met them in person.

Of course, it was sometimes literally months and years of conversations before I felt I knew a person to say I liked them ... but I still think it's possible.

I think meeting LiontamerX is still my favourite example of knowing and liking someone before meeting them. I'd never even seen a photo of him but when I saw him on a street in New York - admittedly in a group of people near where we were to meet - I 100% knew it was him. The two friends I was with (one was Noddy so she 'knew' him from A2k as well ) kept asking me how I knew - I couldn't explain it.

@CoastalRat,
things are not how they were back in the day. people like each other and show it differently.

@cornelljdav,
The attraction piece is a bit tricky because it's hard to be sure there is "chemistry" without meeting in person but you can learn a lot about someone talking to them online.

I think it's actually best if you don't have a photo to consider as you're getting to know the person.

@cornelljdav,
You still have to put the time in getting to know them and how they think, but it is sometimes worth it.

Not always.

@cornelljdav,
Are you, by any chance, that scummy fat looser in Cornell who spends his Fridays locked up in his dorm, eating meatballs, and playing video games all the time?

The reason I asked was that his name is Dave and he reasons like you in matters related to interactions and relationships with the opposite gender.

@Ice Demon,
It's always good to know there are more people out there who are thoughtful and curious about other people's feelings.

@ehBeth,
Quite witty, aren't you?
But pity that people like Dave are almost always led to inaction by too much thinking on their own self? It's all self, self, self, and what she thinks of me, will she like me, does she like me, ... me, ... me, ... me, etc. They'd rather continue their inaction rather than take action and maybe bruise and scratch their ego here and there. It's ironic if you ask me.

Witty?
Thanks.

I've been reading the OP since last summer. He seems to take action on occasion. Like many people he wonders why things don't work out sometimes and looks for input on how to read others better and how to get more satisfactory results.

@ehBeth,
I know I take actions. I just like to know what other people think and learn from them and from myself. in my eyes its good to know what someone else knows when trynna understand something.
