I’m super tired of walking the long way around to the toilet, not being able to make coffee or take lunch when I want to… and having to wait until 5.15 until I can go home. I’ve done this everyday for the last 9 months all because I have a huge/irrational crush on this girl at work. I have to avoid her all day because when we occasionally walk past each other I’m convinced that I’ll do something absolutely unforgivable*.
Anyway, I think I really want to go on a date with her… I think she’s pretty but I’ve actually only looked her in the eye once or twice the rest of time I just look at the floor etc… but she always wears pretty coats and shoes. I hate the idea of hitting on somebody at work… and I don’t even know anything about her… well according to Facebook she is Welsh… and I accidentally kinda followed her home one time.. so I know where she lives… and in moment of total weakness I opened up the payroll file to check how much she gets paid.
I just really want to ask her out on a date but it’s impossible to initiate any kind of contact without coming across as weird or face disciplinary procedures. I hoped I just bump into her in a bar but it hasn’t happened and I’m too impatient to wait any longer.
A few months ago I emailed her on a Friday afternoon to ask if she wanted anything from the vending machine. Then I was going to go up to her workstation and say, Hi Kate, they’ve sold out of Malteasers so I got you these. (I’d blew £3.99 on chocolates at the BP Garage opposite work). I/my friend Dale, thought this would totally “work”…. but she replied with…
“Oh thank you, that’s really nice but I have to go home soon!”
This was February 15th… we haven’t spoke since.
Please can everyone come up with ideas on how I can ask her out?
Thank you. X-
