Before I rattle on, some background; I am the most popular bloke at my workplace. Have had quite a few women hitting on me (none of whom I like) and some of them are even married. And until recently, I practiced the game on them while adhering to the platinium rule.
So, as it happens, a new girl joins the workplace. She is drop dead gorgeous and all of 24. So much so that even my staccato faced boss blushes when he talks to her. While inititally she was not that friendly but we eventually built up some chemistry. Also, in a fortunate or unfortunate turn of circumstances, the management decided to rennovate the premises and we were shifted to an unsed office in the sixth floor.
As it happens, here, I was seated right next to her and that is how our like-hate relationship started. We were very pally at first and she was always super excited to talk or listen to any of the crap that I would tell her. There were also very clear signs of attraction:
1) She would always gaze at me when I wasn't looking
2) Play with her when I'd speak with her
3) Sit uptight, accentuating her body and preen herself when I'd converse
4) Makes deep eye contact - She is not the type who blushes
5) Teasing me
It was great at first and then I had a little spat because she ratted me out on a prank that I played on the sales girl (who likes me - apparently). I was a tad bit pissed of at her and she did apologise to the sales girl while explaining that it was her who played the prank.
Since then she has been acting weird and our equation is no longer the same. We only converse when it has anything to do with work and long periods are spent in awkward silence.
I am somewhat attracted to her as well (She is hotter than my ex). So, instead of apologising and supplicating, I pay more attention to other women, including the girl on my right (Yeah, I am seated next to two pretty women).
While she spends more time whatsapping, sulking and ignoring me entirely. Truth be told, I like her because she reminds me of my ex and is prettier than she was among other things.
My cold approach skills of late have become rusty and I am relegated entirely to social game due to time commitments and also owing to the fact that I am nearly thirty now.
How do I resolve the situation and restore the balance of power?
Need to add that I am contemplating freelancing and thus she working in the same office should no longer be a problem.
