New to the forums & looking for some advice with this girl I know from work - technically not my work, I mean I see her at work, I'm a paramedic & she is one of the doctors in the ED! Apologies if this is a little long! So I met her when she treated me for a sore back about 5 months ago then saw & chatted to her at an ED/Ambos get together a month after. I then saw her frequently in the ED & have chatted ever since so I thought I'd add her on fb, which she accepted. I then saw her out about a month ago at a similar gathering & she insisted on introducing me to a few of her friends(which I found a little strange, but ran with it), we exchanged numbers & when she left early, before I realised I kinda grabbed her hand & gave her a half kiss on the cheek sort of goodbye..
Since then I saw her more & more, & I took an opportunity to text her when she saw me almost back my ambulance into a pole! I said I expected at least a wave for my efforts & she said she was trying to preserve my dignity. I asked her if that was code for laughing her ass off & she said maybe, so I replied I liked it better when she was thinking of my feelings! After that I didn't hear back.. There was also a time when she wasn't there, a friend of her's came up to me & said oh so you're so-&-so, the para cute-girl was talking about - not that she talks about you all the time.... Which intrigued me - but I figured chicks talk right, & I shouldn't read too much into it.
I've hardly seen her since - opposite shifts, holidays etc. Been trying my hardest (probably too hard) to just run into her but no dice! We still comment & like each other's & mutual friend's statuses on fb, & a little bit of banter etc - but I have been wanting to text her to see if I can get to know her, ask her out for coffee or something because from what I've seen she's the kind of woman I would like to get to know better.
I was thinking of sending a text saying 'are you aware you're a tough woman to catch up with?' or something similar - any advice?? Should I send something different?? Should I bother?? Am I barking up the wrong tree?? She's really smart, worldly & just a touch old fashioned & well I'm a funny, courteous, 28yo boy if that helps!! lol
Thanks in advance guys..
