There’s this new girl at work who I had never spoken to before today. I had to help her with some work today and we were getting on well. We were chatting about unwork related things and I was teasing her a bit too. Then afterwards when she emailed me some work, we continued some banter in an email exchange. During the email exchange she emailed me:
Her: “I gonna have to be careful with you! You look like trouble!”
Me: Now that hurts!
Was this an IOI from her?
Also, what would have been an ideal response from me in that situation? Perhaps something more flirty?
