“Know how to flirt with your co-workers”
Yes, the advice a lot of people give when it comes to getting with a chick you work with is, “Don’t crap where you eat.” That can totally apply to this scenario, but sometimes there’s just a hottie you can’t resist. It’s not your fault that you both happen to work at the same place. If you don’t mind rumors (which are probably more than true) circulating at work (which they totally will), then proceed with operation snag-your-coworker.
The first thing to do is to test out the waters. Light flirting does this best, since being in the same place with someone so often tends to lead to attraction of some sort, even if it’s not someone you’d normally hook up with. Kid around when you’re talking and drop hints that say, “I totally think that you’re bangable, but not in a sexual harassment way.” Since this is a work place, you do have to be careful with how strong you come on. If you do cross a line, management could get involved and lead all the way up to you losing your job. But, once she starts flirting back and says things like how excited she is to work with you or how she missed you, then what you’re saying can take a more sexual turn. When she seems really comfortable with you, then you can move on to phase two.
“Take her on a coffee date outside office”
It’s obvious that the two of you always talk at work, but now it’s time to make a connection outside of it. This is most easily done through texting or a popular social site. Either you can ask her for her number, or add her as a friend online. Our favorite way to get the digits without seeming overly forward is as follows: “[person we both know] did something so funny when we were hanging out. I went to text it to you, but realized I didn’t have your number.” This more often than not makes her comfortable with giving it to you….to talk about funny things…yeah. However, messaging her online while you two aren’t friends yet is a little bit weird. Even just her clicking that ‘accept’ button gets you far enough into the comfort zone to start macking a little harder.
Now you’ve been hanging out at work and texting in your spare time, saying all of those sweet, funny things that ladies love to read through electronic communication. But it’s time to set up an actual hangout. Maybe there’s a movie playing that she might want to see, or coffee that the two of you might need to drink, or even just watching something at home. All of these lead to prime, quality time spent together, which makes this stage so crucial. It can get awkward. The conversations that happen on the phone/computer HAVE to translate to real life. Combine the charming words with physical touch and it’s only natural that all of these steps progress to getting it on.
