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.

CC - If you want to learn a world of advice? Listen to what Alix said, than read what she said again.

I'd let Alix take me home with her, but she probably would know better

Thanks Bob, She was talking about adolescence and space but could be adopted by me if it happens next time.
