Well it went neither as good nor as bad as it could have gone. She didn't exactly play the friends card, but my suspicions were verified and she is seeing someone in a long distance relationship. But the impression I got from her was that she was impressed I had worked up the courage to ask her out, and I think she views me in a different light. Plus the friendship is still intact, and that's always a good thing.
I kept it very casual the whole time, and when she couldn't think of anything to say I just said "well it isn't as though we're mourning the death of anything here" and chuckled, and after that things were back to normal. I still think there's a possibility for a relationship here, but not right now. Plus I think I may have planted the "seed" of possibility in her mind, so maybe she'll give a relationship with me some more serious thought and who knows what the future may bring.
For now, I'm happy to count her among my friends, if nothing else (again... fow now XD)
Man... I'm just the eternal optimist today, aren't I?
