JL is partially right about confidence, I think he got it from that movie with Ryan Reynolds and the ghetto applebees restaurant, but solid advice nonetheless.
I would say the more you push her on dating you the more you shoot yourself in the foot. She might really not want to date anyone, or she might really just not want to date you but pressuring her isn't the best way to find out. The point everyone here is trying to make is if she wanted to date you she would, it's not to say she might not one day be interested but right now she isn't. Everyone's been there at least once, and the best thing you can do is take a step back, collect yourself, and move on. It might work out, it might not, but the only thing that comes from all the waiting is more time wasted.
I actually didn't, but the fact that you put myself and Ryan Reynolds in the same sentence makes you an ass-hat.
As for the time waited, I know that from personal experience. I even know girls that said they liked me in high school whom I was close to but had no idea. So sometimes they're not doing a good job either showing the signs. The best way to go about it is show confidence, like Ryan Reynolds, and see if they are. If not, do what he said. Move on. It may not seem it, but the "plenty of fish in the sea" is true. And from personal experience, the right ones pop up when you least expect it.
