I feel like an absolute AFC right now. A girl has been working in my office for just shy of 8 months, HB8. She has just recently broke up with a long term BF and is out looking again. The problem I have is I've never been attracted to someone at work before and I have no idea how to play this. If I met her out of work I'd have sarged her weeks ago.
It started when my office colleagues noticed we would make a good couple a month or so ago. Before then I only saw her as hot and not gf material. We went on a night out where I hurt my leg on the dancefloor. I sat out the night at a table luckily the girl sat with me most of the night. We later attempted a slow dance. She was still with someone at this point I may add.
When we're at work we neg each other quite a lot. She always tends to laugh hysterically at any joke I make. I've read a few things about body language to try and help me out and I've noticed certain things that indicate she may be attracted to me. She keeps crossing her legs when we're talking, this is meant to indicate 'check me out' (she has amaing legs too .) She tries to position her whole body facing me when talking and always keeps eye contact with me.
Some of you may say with all this why aren't you closing her now. The problem is if I ask her out and she says no, we're stuck in the same office together. It's hard to get her alone to ask too. We would both feel incredibly embarrassed asking each other out in front of the office, can't really help that though. I am human. Another point I may add is; I've never worked anywhere else than where I am now. So, I have no experience in handling situations like this.
And thus my frustration. Any advice is greatly welcomed.
