I know it's not quiet texting, but this is the best place I can think of posting this on the forum.
Cute female Co-Work. We work on the same floor and bump into each other once/twice a week ever so often. Got her name, been chit-chatting in passing for about 2-3 months.
Asked her for lunch, and she told me she was married. Bumped into her again and I said I still want to have lunch with her. She said could, we can have lunch as friends. Asked her for her email address (work) so that we can make lunch arrangements and she game it to me.
She responded negatively a day later. She's uncomfortable and she feels she shouldn't have given me her email address.
The way I see it that she is scared, and the fact that she insisted the lunch was as friends means there could be a glimmer of interst. Another positive sign is that she responded to the email even if the response was negative, she could have just ignored it.
I want to respond and ease her fears .. and without pushing too hard get her to accept one lunch date. .. remember we are communicating on work emails, so i have to thread carefully.
