If you don't mind, just bumping for updates. Hope it all worked out
It's pretty much the same, maybe creeping closer to getting somewhere!
We text now and then outside of work, on days he's not in. Thats pretty much 50/50 on who initiates.
Last week I had an interview for a promotion which I got (still working with him). He'd been running though pretend interview questions with me and offered to listen to my presentation and really helpful. Obviously I was dressed up for the interview and he did the full head to toe gaze and told me I looked great. then just stared and grinned. I got invited out for coffee by a colleague as a congrats (female colleague) and told him why I was popping out but would be back later. Dropped by his office just before lunchtime and we were chatting about work and he asked about who I'd gone for coffee with and I really hoped he would suggest celebrating my promotion, I mean, perfect reason right? But nothing! I didn't feel I could suggest because the new job means I supervise his schedule and it felt a bit weird. I'm not officially his boss but I guess I am senior to him now.
This week I needed to work on writing for a piece of film he was editing and it was really annoying being in a separate office across the building. He told me to go and borrow a laptop from IT and just spend the day in his office. It was awesome. I feel totally relaxed in his company and we had a really good banter going and were laughing so much our boss (in next door office) commented on what all the fun was about. However when it came to lunch etc he just said he was popping out and would be back in a bit.
I needed to get the computer back to IT at the end of the day and when I mentioned it he said 'just keep it for tomorrow and stay here, it's more fun and you know it makes sense' so I did. Again, so much laughing but also more chatting too, about what school was like, how we were both kind of geeky and outcast, what our childhoods were like etc. Our boss was in the office next door and both doors were open all day, but she left mid afternoon. As soon as she had gone he asked me to go outside with him for some fresh air. There's loads of green space and as we were walking he suggested sitting on the grass but decided it was too damp and lead the way over to a bench. We chatted really easily for about 20 mins and both laughed loads.
Also we'd been talking about food and baking and so I took in in a piece of cake I'd baked at the weekend. The next day he was aksing for more!
He's been asking more about the nearby small town where I live. What's it like, what's the nightlife like, does it have a station, how far from the station to my house etc (remember he doesn't have a car and lives in nearby big city) and I keep thinking he's weighing up the possibilities of us dating
but it's so very darn frustrating!
