Don't try to figure out why she likes you, just accept it. If it works out, great; if not, well, you're no worse off than before you met her. Nothing ventured, nothing gained!
You have a point Scotch, I still don't believe love at first site, However she would be a cool friend to hang around with and I did enjoy her company!

You might allow me to get within 3 feet of you when you are IT. But when it is my turn I might not allow you any closer than 6 feet. People have different levels of comfort.
You have a good idea Alix, When it got a little uncomfortable I've used my camera as an exuse and got up and moved to a chair! Because some times I felt her leg against mine when we were sitting on the couch.
