    I wanted to know how most of you would handle this situation, and I call the women of OT to help me determine body signals and subtleties(sp?).

    I went to this home appliance store today with some business partners, we needed to pick up various things :mb: well while I was there I saw a girl that I recognized...didn't place her until about 30 minutes later. This girl that I recognized used to work at a bar that I used to frequent. It was an upscale place, not like a college bar so it was a different scene. Anyways...the last time I saw her I was dating someone..and it just so happens that while I was there on a particular night she had a bartender ask if I was single. Being the faithful guy I am, I said that I was indeed seeing someone.

    So, I know she was interested about 2 years ago. So now that Im single, I'd like to approach her. Now, while we were there I was actually waiting for opportunities to talk to her, even approached her twice about real questions I had about some stuff...but she was quickly distracted after answering my questions :sad2:

    However, throughout the time we were there I noticed that when she'd walk by that we'd make eye contact. This happend I'd say a good 5 times. **Womne of OT: is this a sign that she's interested? Or trying to figure where she knows me?*** hard to say I know, but what signals can I look for so I know I can approach her?

    Also, I didn't really say anything to her and we left. Now I will be going back in that store maybe one more time maybe twice...how would you approach this situation so that its not awkward and uncomfortable for the both of us. There are a lot of employees constantly walking around all the time..most are guys :dunno:

    I'd like to ask her out :x:

    whatcha go for me OT? :hs:

    go for it. There is the chance she might already be involved or might not be interested.. but you will never know until you ask.

    standing there making eye contact over and over and then proceeding to leave to go post on OT :mamoru:

    if you're interested in her and she's making eye contact and shit with you, just go talk to her and ask her out.. its doubtful that getting our opinions on the matter will increase your chances any :hsugh:

    um... well, just because she's making eye contact with you, doesn't mean that she remembers you. if it happens again, use that as your initiation. since you remember HER, if she doesn't you can fill it in. then use that as your lead-in to asking her out. :)

    i know it'll work wonders...

    Her giving you eye contact after two years means nothing if you never even really met her. Most likely she was trying to figure out where she recongized you from. Your best bet would be when you go back in there go straight up and ask her..."did you use to work at (name of bar)." and start the conversation there. If things go ok and she still seems interested ask her out! Good Luck.

    and dont mention that she was interested in you back then. It'll make you seem cocky, or make her feel insecure. or something.

    :werd: If you keep going in and out of that store and all you do is stare at her, you'll come off as the creepy guy who stares. Just go up to her and say hi and take it from there. Girls usually get creeped out if theres a guy that keeps looking but doesnt say anything :mamoru:

    After 2 years (before which, you were never really that acquainted), she was almost definitely trying to figure out why you looked familiar to her. Don't continue to go into the store and "make eye contact" because that will quickly become (to her) "staring," which is super creepy. Go in next time with the intent of speaking with her and re-establishing whatever connection you may have had 2 years ago. If you don't do it next time or the time after that, don't bother. You've already become "the creepy guy who comes in here all the time." Good luck!

    Not necessarily. It's all in the approach. You could flatter the hell out of her that you remembered a detail like that two years ago. You could say "I remember that so-and-so delivered had mentioned that you were interested in me. I was really flattered that someone like you wanted to get to know me better, and there was a part of me that was really disappointed that I was seeing someone at the time."

    It lets her know that even if she doesn't completely remember you, that if SHE is available, you're worth giving a try because you have a track record of being loyal. If you turned her down because you had a gf, she'll be able to trust that you'll treat her with the same dignity. :hsd: Major points, my man...

    But DO NOT use it as an opening line. Then that would be cocky and creepy. That's something to ensure the deal goes your way.

    Thanks :hsugh:

    I was being serious. You were worried about how to approach her with all kinds of coworkers standing around. Since your two businesses are doing business, I figured that if you went up to talk to her, and happened to give her a business card, nobody would notice or care. I thought you'd know to talk to her while you were doing it. :mamoru:
