A couple of months ago, I made a new friend via a group of mutual friends and saw this girl whom I thought was really pretty and has a good personality.
She likes someone else from our group and they have been hanging out together exclusively, though they don’t consider themselves dating.
Whenever I meet this group of friends, I try not to interact too much with this girl directly as I’m afraid that I may grow to like her (because I already find her very attractive) but I’m already attached in a stable relationship.
We all met up today to gamble at one of our friend’s houses.
During the initial mingling, somehow she ended up sitting next to me on the couch and she started talking to me, asking me about my vacation as I just returned from an overseas trip.
I know this just seems like small talk but I thought it was still nice that she bothered to ask me some details of it.
Then when the group started playing blackjack, I had already sat down but she also ended up choosing a seat just next to me, even though it was not the only empty seat available.
Throughout the entire session, she was seated quite closely to me; our arms touched at some points, she also crossed her legs in which they were sticking into my direction and body language wise, she was also seated in such a way that she was kinda facing my side profile.
To be honest, I know she doesn’t like me in any sort of special way but somehow, it still felt nice to be sorta sharing that close physical space with her for that 4 hours. I will not dare to dream of anything more nor take actions of any kind because I’m not the kind to cheat and I do love my gf.
To others who know about this, they will probably just brush it off as an eyecandy but all my past exes started off as my eye candies whom I found attractive and we eventually got together.
I’m meeting this same group of friends tmr again and my gf will be coming along too. I think I’ll just maintain lesser direct interactions with her, but the fact that I’m having random thought of her is annoying me. Not seeking any advice here, just wanted to get this off my chest.
