I like this girl. We don’t talk much or anything. We work together, but she has changed her schedule due to her other job. So, we don’t work at same time and she will be leaving this job in 4 months. I like her and want to ask her out. She is one year older than me and, I don’t want her to think of me that I am that weird guy at work. I don’t know if asking her out is a good idea. What is the mindset of the girl when she sees that a guy from work is asking her out?

I don’t think it’s bad at all to ask a girl out at work. After all, most of our lives are work these days, it can be hard to meet people when out, and online dating can be a headache. In one of my first relationships, my now ex-boyfriend (we were together for 4 years) asked me out at a hotel we both worked at. There was a strict no-dating policy within departments, but he was in a different department than me. We were told that as long as it was kept outside of work, it was fine. I loved that he asked me out. Mind you, we had talked a bit before and gotten to know each other. I would try striking up more conversation with her and seeing where it goes. Let her get to know you and get to know her if possible before making that leap.

Goodmorning, it wouldnt be a bad thing to ask her out. I have 2 of my friends who have been together for 3 years no and they met at work and he got the couragr to ask her about 6 months after starting to work together. Nowadays they changed their job but they are till going strong. Goodluck

maybe just ask start talking/hanging out with her?

You should ask her. You don’t want to look back one day and regret not doing so especially if you see where she ends up dating someone else she works with. I met my late husband at work and we were happily married for 20 years.

If you don’t ask you will never know…..just go for it and if she does great if not….next
luckymothertuckerParticipantAugust 22, 2017 at 3:57 pm #146521
Go for it. You at least already know each other which can take away some of that first date awkwardness

Just ask her. Don’t be a bit too forward so you dont creep her out. But leave it too long and soon enough you’ll be in the friendzone.
ktmiller222ParticipantNovember 10, 2017 at 6:38 pm #155866
Maybe just ask her to happy hour so it doesnt seem like a “date”…make it more casual and see where it goes
evergreen999ParticipantNovember 10, 2017 at 7:42 pm #155871
Just ask her out. Some girls are reluctant to date at work but she is leaving so she will go out with you if she is interested.
juliejonesParticipantNovember 12, 2017 at 6:45 am #155910
I agree the other people that you should just ask her somewhere, but maybe not somewhere typically datish like a coffee shop, restaurant or bar. Try think of somewhere you want to go like the zoo or aquarium and ask if she wants to come with you. Also try and just some have some general conversation with her as well. If she is leaving your workplace soon and it doesn’t work out then it shouldn’t that bad if you get rejected.

It is not weird at all lots of people meet at work. It takes ball to ask someone out so I say go for it! Casually say we should hang out some time ..go see a movie or something see what she says ( do this in person or by text) some people tend to be different at work than outside of work so take it slow and see if you two hit it off outside of work and go from there. I hope you two hit if off 🙂
diego19ParticipantNovember 12, 2017 at 7:48 pm #155948
Just smile and ask her out.
