Was the 'we' she was referring to mean her and the 'him' who answered "No" ?

Was he answering the question "Have we met?"

Was the conversation that went on for hours just informal small talk / banter? So then he said something or did something that reminded her of someone, or gave her some kind of "deja vous" if you will, which caused her to ask the question?
