this could be a second chance to take...

one of my colleagues has somewhat decided to take it upon herself to tease me bout doc. and somehow even cutie aussie colleague heard bout it. that was when she asked him if he had doc's contact. and he did.

i've learnt that if i just play along with all the teasing, no one can really tell if i'm truly interested or not. so that's what i did. and both of us had a hilarious time joking around bout how she had a slightly sprained ankle (which was true) and was in need of a doctor and how since i'm such a good friend, i was volunteering to call doc for her.

apparently more of this occured again as the boss lady joined in on the fun, repeating once again (this time in the presence of everyone else) bout how he's interested in me. yeah well i'm not positively sure.

the event is over and i'm not likely to see him ever again. but yeah, i do have his namecard. which means that i have his email and his contact number. i'm not sure if i should try and contact him. and i'm even less sure bout what to say. he's pretty cool and everyone seems to think so as well. and in fact he kinda suggested to cutie aussie colleague in a passing statement bout how they should catch up for a beer. maybe that's a guy thing.

but what does a girl say to make the "first move" without coming across as desperate or whatever??

nothing wrong with an email to say hello!

Yeah, don't go overboard with a whole 'I like you, lets get on the love bus' email, just get in touch and say hey - say it was good to meet you, got your email off one of the guys and hope we can stay in touch...blah blah.

Keep it short, friendly & general.

Its not at all desperate to get in touch with someone you've met and liked. He'll be pleasantly surprised, I bet.

yeah i'm kinda thinking that i should send an email... i just don't know what exactly to say. but the casual route is definitely preferred...

I feel you Jo. In your shoes I would also think I should send an email. I would probably want to send an email, but I would have no idea what to say. In fact I'd probably spend about 3 hours carefully wording a four line message...

I would go with something like what Please Don't Eat With Your Mouth Open suggests, and I would agree on keeping it short. You don't have to say a lot, all you really need to do at this point is make some sort of friendly contact so he knows you're open to keeping in touch.

Maybe imagine you're emailing a new female friend who you'd like to keep in touch with?

I don't think there's anything wrong with an e-mail either -- as long as it's short and breezy.

Desperation only comes across when you think too much about it and write something like an essay.
