Sounds like you're already friends. If you can't have a normal conversation with him face to face, what did you do for several hours when you went out with him socially? And if you don't think he's interested in what you say, why is it he keeps on asking you questions and encouraging you to talk more?
Your conversation with him was a liitle confusing. You seemed to suggest to him that if you can't look someone in the eye that means you don't like them. If you can't look someone in the eye it usually means that you fancy them. I've never been so nervous as with people I've found attractive, even to the level of near panic attacks.
He sounds like a nice person rather than shy. He's asked you about your private life; have you ever asked him about his? Maybe he's like you in that he wants to get to know you more and then see what happens - probably the best course for you.
But then again, Tiff, I've mostly been a failure in that department, so maybe you shouldn't pay any attention to me. Best of luck.
I think we are friends..partially. To be honest..not sure. We tease and joke around sometimes. As far as his private life, I have asked about it at times..what he does on the weekends..etc.
I figured you already realized that I fancy him..he knows that. I just feel all closed off and like I'm being scruntized so much..I feel like for example the way a clastrophic would feel in a closet..as if I simply have to leave...or something.
Anyawys, I am seriously working on trying to be around him better..visiting his cube or trying to...but like I said..hard to look at him. But I do glance at him when he's not looking at me and I think he sees that when he comes over around where I am.
It's all too confusing. But if anything happens, be sure to post away LOL
as far as that one time socially...I mean I was able to talk to him mostly and laugh too. I don't know, I know I was a little quiet, but I tried.
