Ok, I was always against the idea of gaming a girl at work, especially now that I am in a more professional work setting. I work in an office with 11 people. We hired this solid HB8 a couple months ago and because we are both the only younger people in the office and both of us recently graduated, we both naturally had a lot in common. She slowly opened up to me but now texts me all the time during the day and fb messages me throughout the day joking around and she has been pretty flirty at times, she is always smiling around me, and responds positively when I flirt with her. She even invited me to lunch with her today.
This would all be great but the work thing complicates it big time, in my mind it does anyway. While we both get along great and are flirty with each other, neither of us really hit on each other, and I dont try to escalate at all really. I dont because if I have misread this whole situation, I dont want to create an awkward situation. No one at work knows that we text or talk as much as we actually do and she seems to want to be discrete about that a little bit (originally we emailed each other during the day, but she decided texting would be more private).
How do I figure out if shes actually into me or just a friendly girl who likes to joke around with me because I am the only young guy there? Like I said normally I would keep work separate, but shes a really cool girl, and damn she has a great body lol. Any suggestions or input are greatly appreciated.
