I met this girl during a birthday party for a friend. She's the roommate of a friend of mine and we had two classes together. We started talking more throughout the semester and I have developed feelings for her. But she is in a relationship, and just celebrated her 1 year anniversary with the guy. I feel like shes flirting with me and today she gave us a nickname based on something we did together. So I'm trying to figure out if she likes me or is just being friendly. Thanks.

How sure are you that she has something more than that. A friend with benefits situation pales in comparison when you meet someone you have greater chemistry with. When you say anniversary...did they only announce it or make a special party of it with gifts? If so, that's confusing. It is possible for a person to be attracted to two people at the same time. So tell her that something has been on your mind and you wanted to clear it up. Maybe that the comaradery you have with her is something you've seen in other couples who are in commited relationships. So even though you know she is with your friend, you wonder how committed she is to him. Is there a chance for you to have a relationship with her. If she has been hanging with him until someone that suited her better came along, then there won't be a strong commitment there and she should respond easily to you. You won't know until you ask. If she says she feels you're only a good friend, accept that and let her know you wont interfere but if she changes her mind to come let you know. Then move on. Perhaps you will find someone else as wonderful or even more wonderful than her. [ Dragonflymagic's advice column | Ask Dragonflymagic A Question ]

Girls who are in relationships usually flirt with other males just because she can, because of the attention it gains her and if things go south then she has a safety net-aka, the boyfriend. I advise not to go for her, stay with people who chose you first. Don't be anyone's second plate, because if she's doing to him it'll probably be done to you too. I hope this helps!
