Yet More Girl Advice.

Wed Dec 30, 2009 8:40 pm

Hey Fellas.

So, I met this girl at work last week, she is the receptionist during the mornings and I noticed some weird behaviour towards me.

First when I started she said to me "So you are starting today?" I said Yes I am "well that's very nice" she said, at first I did not thought about it much, I thought it was pretty normal.

Then everytime I walked past her desk I noticed her starting to smile, even if I gave her a quick glance she will be smiling, very obvious.

I am not very good at this girl-business, and all I could do is try to have some small talk with her If I saw her around the coffee machine or If I go near her desk.

Yesterday as I was leaving for lunch she was getting ready to go home, as she saw me walking out the door she told me to hold on as she was also ready to go, we had some more small talk outside of the office and found out a little more about her.

Today, 3 boxes full of little presents for our clients had to be sent to the post, when my boss arrived she told me that the "girl from reception needs your help carrying the boxes to the post office" we found a bigger box to put the presents on so we only needed to carry one box each, my boss offered to help us if needed to which the girl said "it would not be necessary"

Once outside she tells me "well I guess after we are done at the post office maybe we can get a coffee or something" to which I agreed of course, I kinda saw it coming.

I invited her to the coffee and again we talked about each other a bit more, all very normal and it flowed naturally.

So, I ask you what should I do next? when will it be the right time to ask her for her number?

We finish work tomorrow at 2 (I will leave at 1 tho) should I ask her if she fancy having lunch? or is it too soon?

I really like her, she seems like a pretty normal girl and I hope we do continue to get along well.

Many many thanks in advance.

She asked you for coffee so she's not scared to spend time with you, if anything it sounds like she fancies your company on at least some level. I say ask her out for lunch and see where the conversation takes you!

Good luck and have fun!!

Well, by your little story there, I think it's safe to assume she's sober. Which is to say no beer goggles, so you got that going for you. Lunch or dinner, it's your call but the she's interested.

Quoting MIAspotter (Reply 2):

Hmmm...my gut says to ask her out to dinner but lunch isn't a bad idea either, it just seems a little "friendy" to me. Go with your gut.

No no no! Always start with lunch. It's far less threatening. And it need only be casual. "Hey, doing anything for lunch tomorrow?"

Here's the thing: tread with extreme caution. You do work with this girl, and so you don't ever want this getting unpleasant. Workplace romances are a minefield, so stop and think about how far you want to take this or what risks you want to take. You don't need her filing a harrassment complaint out of spite or anything.

Well a few years back... when Non-Av was actually a really great forum that was more than just political bullshit bantering, and a close group of friends... there was this kid on here named 'Flairport". Well he was very detailed in telling us about a girl he liked, and what he was doing to get her to like him. This included semi-stalking her, tracking her flights online when she traveled.... and buying her a creepy snow-globe. Needless to say, his threads became epic, and the snow-globe thread easily rank in the top 10 of "all time best Non-Av threads".

That stuffs over....My trip to NY this weekend took care of any feelings I have for her.

But why can't say a girl is good looking? I knew about the commercial a LONG time ago, and I was waiting for it to come out. I saw it on the plane yesterday actually, and our entire group watched it. So, it's really not stalking.

I mean, who wouldn't watch someone they know in a NATIONAL COMMERCIAL!!!!! That's big stuff!

Tomorrow will be the test though, I give her the snowglobe. I really think she'll enjoy it and think of me a little bit different, much like the other girl. Fingers crossed!

WOW  Wow!  Wow! You must be very physically attractive or something because women almost never approach a man, much less ask them out for coffee...good for you! Consider your self lucky...it might be a bit awkward, but just run with it, and wait and see how it goes...it seems like shes interested in you, so she might even offer you her number...very rare of a woman to do... have fun!

Definitely what Fly2HMO says is true, in other countries, it is more culturally acceptable for women to approach men. But I also think you don't have to be Brad Pitt to have women pay more attention to you.

It's all about confidence. When you feel good about yourself, women can tell and respond, even in subtle ways- smiles, body language, etc. or sometimes as direct as MIASpotter's situation.

That said, I'm no expert. I've been single since July 2008, and have been on 4 dates since then, none of which have gone to a 2nd date, so it's not like I'm rolling in the women. I definitely have problems with shyness and reading women's signals, but I do know some things  Smile

I'm far from the most confident guy as well. I boost my confidence by buying new clothes (got some great stuff for Christmas) or wearing a cologne I like and on the surface it helps, but I haven't quite made it over the hump of believing in myself- believing I am a great guy who has a lot to offer and these women should be concerned with the fact that they don't have ME, not the other way around.

One of my good friends who used to get with a lot of girls before he settled down at age 19 (???) and got engaged told me his secret was that he just didn't care. And that was true. He really didn't. He just did his own thing and it didn't matter to him. He was too busy doing crazy shit.

My problem is figuring out how to become that way myself. Or I could just move back to Boston, where after 19 years of never getting past 2nd base, I lost my virginity in less than 5 weeks Big grin

When (if) we spend some more time together I will try and find out if she likes to travel, if she does then is a big plus, I think that travelling together does enhance the relationship and makes it a little more special.

She told me she would love to spend some time in the US tho, so in a way she does like exploring places.

should I ask her if she fancy having lunch?

Start slow, do a couple of lunches before moving to a real date.
No matter how random things may appear, there's always a plan.

That is a lot easier said than done believe me...shyness is something one is born with; its not something yous just "give up" plus rejection tends to make you even more shy; im the type of guy who needs positive reinforcement to have confidence; negative reinforcement only makes me less confident and more shy...

I agree with you here, I was also very very shy, and it was really hard for me to get talking to a girl (bar the usual small chat at a party) but when I met my ex-girlfriend (which she also took the initiative to start going out) I now feel a little more at ease.

congratulations! hope the next date goes well too.

Thank you!

That's my plan, do a few lunches and as we get more comfortable with each other, then go for the real date.

I really like this girl and I don't want to screw this one up.

I love that song, and my gay friend Austyn was hilarious- he said that what Jon Lajoie says in that song is basically what he would say if he wanted to act straight! Big grin

LOL, funny but I think that will get me a slap on my face or killed LOL.

Now I need to start thinking about what sort of conversation topics to have, but mostly I just want to find out a bit more about her, family, music taste, hobbies, etc.

What? No! You do not want to overanalyze. In case you two are compatibile, you should be able to conversate without this.

Yes, but we can't help but overanalyze.

On the other hand, you are right, when we where having coffee, conversation did flow naturally, so I should not worry too much.

That is VERY important, and a good sign; one of the reasons im so shy around women, is i never know what to say, so i dont approach them. Being able to have a conversation is a very good sign.

Well, you can ask something about herself, sign, what sort of music she likes or films and you can take it from there, of course it is easier said than done...
