I took this girl I have known for years (but never really spoke to) to a Formal in November. Great night, drinks, all that, then she spontaneously decided to ask me to go steady with her. I said OK. Told a handful of my mates what she said on the night because I thought she was being sincere, but the next time I spoke to her, she didn't remember saying anything about going steady.
That was alright, we still spoke to each other normally, then, just a week ago, she decided to confront me (in person) about "telling everyone that we were steady", that I was"showing random people her messages" and then announced that she doesn't want to speak to me again. Wtf? She said that someone in my Year told her this, but those allegations are a load of balls.
When she said this to me, I **** myself and just said that "I liked her" instead of trying to defend myself, so she must think that I did say those things, and she probably won't believe me if I try and tell her otherwise.
I'm 99% sure I know the identity of who told her this, but the difficulty is that she has known this person (girl) since primary school, and is more inclined to believe her than me.
What do I do? (and yes, I know the obvious answer is to forget about her, but I see her almost every day and it depresses me to see her look so pissed off all the time).
Any advice is appreciated.
