If you can, get her into a general conversation about female relationships without mentioning how either of you may feel about it, you may find an answer. Example: You say, "I was at the bus stop this morning and this girl walked up to me and asked me to go out with her. I didn't know what to say to her. What would you have said?" Then try to stay on the subject until you have a good idea how she feels about it.
Don't ask her a direct question about herself and don't tell her anything about how you feel. If she is very negative, agree with her and accept the idea it's just a friendship. If she seems interested like asking, "What did she look like?" reply like, "Not as cute as you."
If she is interested, she'll respond. If she isn't, no damage will have been done.
