Anyone here ESCAPE the friend zone? (Long story)
Just wondering if it's really possible because I tried everything for the past couple months. There is this girl who I was very fond of, but I knew I was in the friend zone (I've known her for over two years). I pulled back for over two months, ignoring her completley, I broke almost all contact.
During that time I whipped myself into shape, got more friends, started dating this other girl in an open relationship, so that the girl I was after would know I was attractive, that kinda deal where success breeds more success. I joined a band and started playing music regularly, hitting the gym and I became more tone. I started flirting with her anonymously on formspring, and about a couple weeks ago I revealed it was me and she was ecstatic, we flirted and texted a bit. I took her to go roller skating and she seemed interested enough, gave me the occasional luring glance and she would poke me and say Tag you're it then skate away, looking back to see if I was chasing her. I asked her if she wanted to hang and she was very excited.
I took her to see inception a couple hours ago, slowly started getting progressively more physical with her and she seemed ok with it, but as I went along she became less and less responsive. I leaned in and kissed her cheek and she said "haha pay attention watch the movie." I was devastated, where the hell did I go wrong I played all my cards perfectly, showed her pictures of me singing with my band, talked about some othe things I had been doing this summer, used plenty of humor, and I intentionally complmented her on someone elses facebook wall then act surprised when I saw her comment on the post, I pretended I didn't know they were friends.
I showed her I wanted her for more than just her looks (which I really do, she's a great person), teased her and called her a nerd because she reads a lot.
How the hell do you escape the friend zone because idk what I could've done differently.
