Re: Asking work colleague out
I don't recommend this at all. Work and relationships should be kept far from each other. That being said, I'm still going to advise you.
Don't put her on a pedestal.
I swore I'd never get with someone at work, but for her, i've decided to make an exception.
Text her and build a relationship with her OUTSIDE of work. Don't even talk about work! It doesn't exist! Act like she's a hot friend that you've known for years but just now noticed.
I also have her number, but don't really text her that much, as I think we talk enough at work
I obviously don't know you're complete background with her, but I don't suggest this... at least not the "I think we should try it out." part. Being direct with her could work, but going over to your house could be weird if you guys don't really talk. Again, text her.
"I think we should try it out. Come over next week and I'll make you dinner."
You're putting down your guard completely and putting her into control... UNTIL you tell her that she should take you out.... but then you give her back the power when you said "so let me know when that's happening". You're basically saying, "Hey I want to go out with you, so let me know when you have time for me!"
"I'll be straight with you. I want to take you out. On a date. But due to last night's events, I think it should be you that takes me out. So let me know when thats happening."
As far as your Saturday being terrible, I probably wouldn't have turned down the 4 hour drive girl. The work HB is going to be around for a while and blowing her off because you ALREADY had plans would have shown that you have a life.
Best part about this is that she is interested in hanging out with you outside of work! So my advise is to establish a text relationship with her (not really important, but it breaks from the work chatter). Then tell her to come to some dope restaurant or whatever with you.
I wish I was little bit taller
I wish I was a baller
I wish I had a girl who looked good
I would call her - Skee Lo, the OG AFC
