ASK REAL GUYS
Dear ASK REAL GUYS: A coworker and I have been making eye contact and smiling at each other for about a month now. I finally got up the nerve to give him my phone number and he has not called me yet, (it has been nearly a week). I can tell that he is attracted to me as I am to him, and I know that he is not married. Any thoughts as to what is going on in his head? I would really like to get to know him.
Avery: Your friend at work may be nervous to start something with you because if the relationship goes south, you both will have the awkward situation of seeing each other. I think that if you are able to get out of the office with this guy – like going for lunch together – you should give him an indication that you are okay with seeing each other in a social, non work, environment. It sounds like to make something happen, you’re going to have to go out on a limb a bit with this guy – and it sounds like it’s worth it.
