>>95860513>For her to go back to wanting to be friends is moving backwards.>she has no good reason to want to revert to the status quo.
Her reasoning is that it's impossible for her to move forward (into a relationship with Marco) because Marco doesn't feel the same way about her.
Therefore the best option for her going forward is to just try to deal with her feelings while maintaining her friendship with Marco, which we've seen her trying to do since "Just Friends.">Marco seemed positive towards Star's advances
Star hasn't made any "advances."
He was completely bewildered by Ruberiot's song and the awkwardness it created poisoned their friendship.
He was stunned by Star's confession like everyone else, and the few words he managed to get out before she ran off were clearly not going to return her feelings.
Star casually compliments how cute he looks with his beret in "Toffee", which he responds to with an embarrassed smile, but that's just her not completely hiding her feelings, not a serious "advance." She's called him cute before and hugged him tight long before she had feelings for him, that's just how close they are as friends.
