People above are stupid you can tell what she is trying to say. On another note you both have opened up your feelings now things will change because you both know the truth of how you feel which might be a good thing or a bad thing you just need to talk to him more.
Sometimes people get scared and feel too vulnerable and put a guard up. That way they can't get hurt! Give it time and hopefully it will all work out! Feelings are hard to say and can be very scary for people.
