    Kind Of A Weird Scenario That I Need Advice On

    Hi everyone, new here and was hoping to get some advice. There’s a little back story needed. Apologize in advance for the long post.

    I run a business and there’s a woman who works at a different company than mine, but who has had some professional overlap with ours. Basically, she’s not my main point of contact at that company, but we have had to work together as a big group on some projects. However, we are friends on Facebook and Instagram and she consecutively likes most of posts (as do I for hers).

    Anyways, I met her over a year ago and every now and then I reach out to her for help on something that I need to get done. Very sweet woman and we chat on a personal level every now an then. Her and her team came into my office the other day and had a big group meeting. After the meeting, we were chatting and she lives very close to me. I was giving her advice on startups (which is what I am in) because she was thinking about moving onto a different company.

    I sent her a Facebook message the next day saying that we didn’t have a chance to finish our conversation about startups & how’d she like to meet up for coffee or happy hour this week to chat? She said she’d love to! So we’re meeting this week, but our connection has mostly been professional to date. We haven’t really chatted via text or anything other than just to confirm the date to meetup, but seem to have good chemistry when chatting in person or on the phone.

    So my main question: How do I grab happy hour with her and make it known that my intention is not to just help her with her career but also get to know more her on a personal level? I don’t want her to be angry or think I had misguided intentions. I just want to get to know her and see where it goes? I just got out of a long term relationship a week before & am not ready to jump into anything unless it’s right. However, I have had an interest in her since before my past relationship started.

    i would just see where things go. don’t push it cause it will ruin the professionalism and your client out of it. if she acts interested try to act interested and see where things go. but if it stays professional. dont push anything
