3. It may have been an attempt to reassure you that she was not after your sig; "he was like a big brother to me" may be intended as "I have zero interest, don't look at me as a threat." I think some women do that to reassure others. I don't know if that is only if they get funny vibes, or it's people who have themselves had boyfriends targeted/stalked by previous acquaintences, or what, but I think it is not uncommon.

Certainly a possibility. Yesterday, my second daughter was talking about how she views her relationship with her BF. She said that while she was not jealous and not worried that he would leave her for another girl, she made it known loud and clear that she was the "Alpha" and the others girls had by gosh better be showing some belly ;0)
