Today was the day that I decided to try to run "game" on a girl at work today. I'm not sure if I should be reading too much into this, but I just thought that I would get some expert advice.
I saw her in the kitchen looking through the newspaper (I know, I could have asked if there was anything interesting in there) while she was heating up her food. I walked in to "get a napkin" and while I walked behind her I said the typical, "How's it going?" She replied, "It's going alright..."
Me: So, how's your *computer program* running now?
Her: It's working now...it is actually doing what it needs to.
Me: And that is...?
Her: Blah, blah, blah
At this point, I noticed a pin on her top, so I decided to comment on it
Me: That's a pretty cool pin, I don't think I've seen that before.
Her: Oh, it came with the top. But I take it off sometimes.
Me: It came with the top, but you took it off? (with smirk on my face)
Her I know, I think it adds a "nostalgy" feel to it (*Yeah, I know I missed a hook point there)
Here's where I need to know if this was appropriate, out of line or just fine. I continued with:
Me: I don't mean to be too forward, but I think that you should smile more often...
Me: Because I think that you have a nice smile
Her: I hear that a lot actually (not sure if she meant that she is told that she needs to smile more often or that she is told that she has a nice smile)
Me: It's also cute when you try to hide it...see, just like you're doing now! (at this moment, I'm pointing at her face)
Her: *more blushing*
With that, I walked away. But as I was walking away, I heard her say, "It's because I'm trying not to laugh..." (<--did she mean that she was trying not to laugh at me, or at the situation, or laugh out of nervousness?)
The whole time, I kept eye contact. But not in a creepy way or anything. My body posture was nonchalant, but I was not slouching or pushing my chest out either.
*Note: she's with some dude that she met through an online dating site, but I also know that things are a bit shaky
I know that I should be "escalating kino", but there is always that fear of somebody walking in and snitching to HR or something to that manner. Can anyone provide any tips/ideas on what I should be doing or not doing? Or should I just drop this "set"? Thanks!
