No....not so much. But, IMHO, it kinda sounded like Mr. Wildcat thought so and was disappointed when he realized that wasn't happening.

I think for the most part I do what I say or believe & tend to trust others that do the same. I will provide some examples of what this female has done and maybe it's just me but I see red flags. She has a) said she doesn't like going out to the "club" atmosphere but does b) said she prefers to stay home and just have people over or read or go to movies but goes out (funny b/c this weekend she said she was doing that & was no way going to dress up for the Halloween festivities but dressed up & went to a Halloween party instead) c) talked down about the behaviors of some of her partying friends but continues to hang out with them

Also a few weekends ago (I have been pretty busy with work), I was free and asked if she had any plans on Sunday. She said "I don't know" which sort of surprised me & said she told a guy she hasn't seen in a while that she would go to a museum with him over the weekend but didn't have a set date. Another example of where she said she if I can do something she would always put me first but kept her loosely scheduled date instead.

Anyone think I have reason to see red flags? Maybe at the very least she is pretending to be the person she thinks I would want to see? I'm not sure how to take it all as she plays herself up to be so innocent & just wants to please everyone but for all I know she is a pro at this game. You all are smarter than me.......
She's playin' ya, either up the ante or stop seeing her. Sounds like you haven't made any substantial effort in her direction, so have been relegated to "guy friend #1006"...........

Allow a female (age 52 and legally single) to chime in if that's OK....

Possibility 1: She hates sitting home alone. If you are not free on weekends and there is no exclusive commitment going on here, then she is free to do as she pleases.

Possibility 2: She will date you only if your wallet is along. Run like hell.

Does anyone think there is enough information here to make any determination at all?

I certainly don't.

Sounds like she's not that much into you...but...you don't sound like you are that much into her. Some times the more you get to know someone, the less attractive they become. Sounds like you've already seen enough to have doubts about her, so maybe you should ask yourself why you are still seeing her. If you are just looking for a good time, no problem. If you are looking for a more serious relationship, you have to put in more than a couple of days per month. And, if you are ready to share more of your life with someone, does she possess the qualities that are important to you?
