If you wouldn't mind, to take the time to read the following, and tell me what you think, just your opinion on the interaction and any sub-text included therein, that I may have missed, as I am a bit of a lemon socially tbh.
I was going to a rehearsal, what of I'm not allowed to say
, and was late, anyway, I got to the bus stop for the shuttle bus that'd take us to the venue, there was quite a few people there, I joined the loudest group, which happened to include a rather attractive girl, we all got chatting, once we arrived, I got my number bib(there were 1000 of us) and she was just behind me(we hadn't talked on the bus) she came up to me and started chatting again, we sat together for the briefing, and talked some more, now throughout the 4 hour rehearsal, we didn't see each other again, but on the way back, I saw her on the tube, talking to another girl, and said hi, joining the conversation, I had taken off my badge so the other girl who was also at the rehearsal earlier did not know that I was there too, and thought I was a stranger lol, she asked a question to clarify this, and we confirmed it, and all exchanged, names, hadn't thought to do so earlier oddly, and then the new girl immediately takes her phone out, types 07, and asks me for my number, to 'keep in contact' which I found odd as she has spent all 4 hours with and talking to the first girl yet didn't ask her, and the first girl actually then said, "But why? Why a number? I mean we'll see each other again anyway, there are other rehearsals!" I didn't take any action regarding this and just gave her my number.
That's the situation. Now I would've asked the first girl for a number, because we got on quite well, and I liked the way she looked, but the remark about not needing to exchange numbers, the fact she lives in stockport(I live in London), oh and the fact she dropped she has a bf detered me somewhat lol. Now, I've gone to a boys school for the last 7 years, and never really got out much, so as far as interaction with the opposite sex goes I'm a bit of a noob. And I have never asked a girl for her number before, let alone been asked, especially not such a short amount of time being acquainted with. So I'm a bit generally confused tbh. She has done nothing with the knowledge of my number thus far though, which I'm not sure if I should be confused about lol, other than text me immediately with her name so I could add her too presumably. Now I would appreciate your takes on this, and any help/advice. Now I do understand that inter-gender interaction can be on a purely platonic level, I'm not that shallow to always think otherwise, but frankly, the fact that it is inter-gender communication does raise that possibility, to what extent, for reasons I have already explained, I have no clue at all...
If you've bothered to read the lot, cheers! I'd appreciate any helpful commentary
