I work in a theater and there's an actress I asked out a few weeks ago, over the phone. She said she didn't have the time right then, with a new day job starting and such. Fair enough. After that, she rarely made eye contact with me. This weekend we were closing. One day she came into a room where she'd seen me before. I happened to be facing the door, talking to some people. She came in and her eyes went to where she thought I'd be. She was right and when she noticed I was facing that direction, she immediately looked away and walked over to some friends. I suddenly was aware of her talking and I thought it was just me, but a friend told me later that she was talking louder than usual.
The next day was closing and we were striking the set and props and everything. I assigned her to strike props with my assistant and apparently she spent the entire time asking questions about me, but when I asked her out a second time before we left she blushed bright red and said she was starting a new show the next day and didn't have any time until about June.
So what's going on here? I'm inclined to take her reason to not go out at face value, but she's definitely sending signals that she's interested. I'm confused by the ignoring, then seeming to be interested, then turning me down twice. I've tried to use body language skills I've learned, but it's still leaving me baffled.
