I'll spare ya the details but let's just say I was attracted to her at the very first conversation we had. I felt a spark there and thought there could be something. I tried to look for signals to see if she felt the same way.

Here's the problem. About 90% of my friends are girls. I'm used to them. I'm used to being around them and used to them being nice to me. Therefore, I can't tell the difference between a girl just being friendly and being legitmately interested. I'm sure she definitely likes me, but is she attracted? How am I supposed to know the difference?

I only met her a week ago so she doesn't know that I'm around girls 24/7. Plus, I treat her quite differently then most of my girls. I'm careful not to be overly nice to her. I make sure I'm not clingy. I try to keep myself a bit mysterious. anything to avoid her becoming just another friend.

Anyway, she went out of her way to tell me she's currently breaking up with a guy. She seems to make an effort to touch me in some way whenever she says hi. Sometimes a hug and other times a pat on the head or shoulder. She once complained when i walked by her and didn't notice her. She has me in her top friends on facebook and is constantly "poking" me. (Yes, I know that sounds stupid but it's 2007...)

Is she interested? Or does she just want to be friends? How can I tell the difference?

You could..... ask her! hehe.

Why not?

Or, if too shy, tell a mutual friend and get them to investigate!

Nevermind, the guy she was gonna break up with convinced her to give him another chance. Therefore, whether she's interested in me or not is irrelevant.
