Look for these signs and if you are interested also then maybe you could make the first move yourself. Or, you could prolong the game for a little while longer knowing the entire time about her interest in you. This will just make you like her more and you will find her ways cute and funny.
It could also be possible that you have no such feelings for this person. In this case also, you should go and talk to her and maybe indirectly convey it to her about your feelings for her. This will clear matters up and prevent her from further heartbreak. You might even get a complete denial from her but take it positively. There is no harm in clearing up matters before they are complicated further.
The more you understand yourself, the more silence there is, the healthier you are. —Maxime Lagacé
