The Crush

January 19, 2006

Ever since I started working here I have had an attraction to one of the guys in our Logistics Department. Over the past 6 months we had begun to spend more time socially together (in a big group) and I realised he was nice as well as cute. The past three months I have been working with him a bit more and we had developed a slightly awkward friendship.

I always kept my distance because he was very close to another girl that works here and I didn’t want to step on anyone’s toes. I had heard that they liked each other but she was heartbroken and didn’t want a relationship but he really liked her so they were just friends. Before Christmas she also took part in the sponsored walk and I overheard her talking to another friend about a guy she liked. Happily I realised that it wasn’t The Crush that she was talking about. Once I heard this I decided that if there was ever a chance that anything would happen I wouldn’t let worrying about the two of them to hold me back.

Last week we were chatting (he is just moving to a new flat) and he offered to cook me dinner one day when he is settled.

On Tuesday he offered to buy me a drink sometime because I did some crappy work for him. I thought he meant next time we were out but he emailed me shortly after asking if I wanted to go yesterday lunchtime.

We went and had a lovely time.

I said thanks and asked him if he fancied doing it again sometime, perhaps after work when we have a bit longer than a hour.

He said he would really like that and asked if I was free the week after next (as he is busy with the moving and stuff)

I said that I am going on holiday on the Wednesday but I would be free before that.

He asked me if I was free next Thursday evening – he said he would rather go out and would work harder with the unpacking on the other day.

I can’t stop grinning!
