I thought I would ask some logical people their opinion on this.
I am 21 years old, I am talkative when I get to know people, but shy at first. I can also be quite awkward around girls/young women.
I'm average looking, (not great, I wouldn't say terrible)
I am currently taking anthropology in university.
Every Monday, I have a research methods class, and for the whole year we had a research project. People worked in pairs, asking an anthropological question, and now since it is the end of the year groups (each group consists of 2 people) has to present their findings in a poster. While they present, students come up, ask questions etc.
I knew of one young woman (older than me about 26 years old) in the class. I found her attractive, but didn't really think much of it. It was not until about 3 weeks ago when I presented with my classmate, that her and I had our first interaction this year. I wore a nice dress shirt with a blazer, tie, nice pants, dress shoes, etc, because I wanted to look professional for my presentation. It was a huge improvement from my regular soccer jersey and sweat pants.
That day, I noticed she kept looking at me, and she told me what a good presentation it was.
The next week, I went into class, sat down, and she sat pretty close. Suddenly, she was asking me how I was doing and talking to me. She told me she was presenting next week. I wondered why all of a sudden she was acting so friendly.
This is where it gets interesting. Last week, My group mate and I went to look at the poster her and her friend made. We asked a few questions, and I noticed when she answered us she barely looked at my friend but gave me all of the eye contact. We spoke about general stuff for about 20-25 min, and then she noticed I was wearing a Bayern Munich Jersey. For those who do not know, Bayern Munich is a football/ soccer team which happens to be my favourite team. Then her face lit up and she got all excited. She said that Bayern was her favourite team, and how she would love to watch a game with me sometime. We spoke for about another 20 min, and then class ended. Right as we were leaving she said "bye, and don't forget we have to watch Bayern play together!"
This week, there was another presentation going on. My friend and I were in the crowd watching, and sure enough her friend and herself end up right next to us. My friend was in between me and her. As soon as he went to the washroom she ended up really close to me. I was a bit shy, but I initiated the conversation. We spoke about school, and general things. Finally I asked her if she watched soccer this weekend. Although she didn't seem quite as adamant as last week, she brought up watching Bayern again, to which I responded "why don't we exchange numbers so that we can watch a few games together after exams?" She gave me her number, and I will text her tomorrow.
I am a little bit confused. I barely knew her and now all of a sudden she is acting totally friendly and she has hinted that she wants to do something (watch sports) however, I am not sure what to make of it, as she is quite a bit older. What do you guys think?
