Flirting with the Russian
Visitor's Question from a 31-40 year old Female
I cant think Im so crazy about this guy. He's Russian and probably 10 years younger than me. I work in a restaurant and he comes by for lunch. Casual conversation has progressed, ever so slowly. He's all smiles when he sees me and calls me 'sweetheart' but thats it.
I want to get to know him but dont want to put him on the spot if asked him out for coffee or something. Im sure he knows I like him but doesnt know how much. Ive tried to get over it but catch myself thinking of him...Ive got it bad.
What can I do to push the envelope without sealing myself up in it?
I'd start with walks. Find a way to get a break around the time he leaves and walk out with him, saying you have an errand to run. That will get him used to talking to you OUT of the restaurant, and once you start doing that occasionally, it might get easier to comment that you'll be getting off work when he gets off work and maybe he'd like to grab a dessert or something ...
