Basic summary of the post: I'm trying to rekindle a friendship (then perhaps go further than that) with an ENFP who recently began to re-express interest in me.
Background (can be skipped but it allow you to better respond):
I go to school with someone I believe to be an ENFP. Last year we began talking more than previously, had quite a few good conversations on AIM and otherwise began to get along quite well; I made quite the effort to come out of my shell, get to know some of her interests, music preferences, and more, as well as to make make a show of my wit in her presence.
So, I made what I believed to be a move.... I asked her to go with me to a movie... and to surprise and joy, she agreed. So, we went, enjoyed ourselves at the cinema and while I thought it was date, I will explain, she did not.
So.... foolish me, thinking that we had gone on a date... I more openly used that terminology in my attempt to go on another..... and that backfired. She said that it wasn't the first time a misconception such as that had happened to her, and suggested that we remain friends, however, I felt awkward, and slowly drifted away.
So, it's been a year-abouts since that happened... and we still chuckle to ourselves bout the things the other says.... I'll refer you to this particular thread: Recognizing the "Flirtation" of an INTJ to cover the basic facets of our relationship in this last year.....
I also have been helping her with our physics homework online for the last few months, though only every now and again.
In the last week or two, we also seem to have noticed each other a little more than usual, and otherwise subtly engaged ourselves in the doings of the other person when we overhear them.
As of Yesterday:
I put up as my GChat status "*Everything* is better in a British accent", and so she started a conversation with me that kept us talking from 10:30 to midnight last night... mostly about Dr. Who, but also about where we're going to college in the Fall, some about Physics and my willingness to help her, and even a bit about MBTI, to get her to take one of the tests (which she suggested she'll take soon and tell me the results). So we spent a good long ol' time talking, using statements, mannerisms and other cues that clearly show we were both rather enthusiastically engaged in the conversation. Despite quite a bit of enthusiasm and an interest to go on, I had a test in the morning and had to eventually run head off to bed, but I left it with: "I've been blowing off studying Calc for the last hour.... so I should go do that.... but this was fun -- need to talk Dr. Who more often :D"
So here comes the question...... what in blazes should I do?!?
Obviously we've only taken the first steps to kindle a relationship, and I'd most certainly prefer a strong friendship to nothing (if you folks believe that more than that is unattainable given the background).... so now I'm wondering.... my being a socially ignorant INTJ... how would you suggest I proceed as to rebuild a bridge of communication between us? We've got one class together, along with the ability to communicate online.... but other than that, visibility is limited. I don't want to come off as a stalker, so I sorta feel like I shouldn't be trying to talk to her online every single day..... but uhh... well... hell... I have no idea what is or isn't warranted at this point.... or any point really. Help !
