Perhaps less tequila...

It happened again and yes, tequila was involved and we were out in our work group including the old boyfriend. The night had been filled with back and forth smiles and him occasionally putting his hand on my back and letting it linger. I’m not sure if anyone saw but I felt a constant pull to him. I don’t know if I leaned back into his hand, but I should’ve.

At one point him and my old BF were standing side by side, MG is taller. When I realized this I couldn’t help but smile. MG glowed in comparison and I saw gold coins click above his head.

The old BF reminds me of Marty McFly fading away in Back to the Future 2. And I’m really okay with that. It’s amazing to look at someone and not care what they say or do when sometime ago that same person made or broke every moment of my day. Who da thought?

So the night went on and more beer was had and then it was just the two of us sitting on bar stools and leaning towards each other. It again, felt like a fuzzy combo of a date and a drinking buddy.

At one point he said ‘So tell me everything about you.’

I said ‘I don’t like coconut.’

I’m a charmer, what can I say? I’m not ready to open up to him. I want to and there’s so much I could tell him and Iet him actually be there and be whatever he’s going to be.

But a couple of things- he doesn’t contact me outside of work and he hasn’t asked me out one on one. We haven’t talked about the make out on Cinco de Mayo.

I wanted to bring it up the other night but the words never left my mouth. The night ended with him walking me home and yes... we did walk one block in the wrong direction due to the fuzziness from tequila, but we made it. In front of my apartment we kissed a few times but not made out. It was different this felt more polite then anything else.

What I want next- one on one time with less drinking.

What will happen- more smiles across the office and me waiting for him to make a move, hoping we don’t get stuck in the friends zone. Perhaps I need lower cut shirts?


  1. Hmm, I would sex it up for sure, and then play aloof. If he asks if you are going out for drinks after work one night, say no, make up some excuse, or offer a raincheck. I almost want to say you ask him out, but I think that could be the wrong move. Depends if he is shy or something. Who knows with guys nowadays.

  2. Or make reference to things that would offer themselves to a date not a group activity. Like a movie, art exhibit, etc.

  3. Haha, you can never go wrong with boob shirts :-P
    At least there were still kisses, I'm sure that's a good sign there, and I"m thinking that neither of you were overly coordinated thanks to the tequila. Keeping my fingers crossed!

  4. (Sorry about that--for some reason or other, this comment posted in the wrong place!)

    Oh, I know this feeling all too well. There's really nothing like a work romance... if nothing else, it adds some excitement to your day and gives you a reason to get a bit more dressed up than usual (I'm trying to snag one of these myself, but it hasn't been terribly successful lately).

    So you guys made out on Cinco de Mayo and never discussed it again? I'm not so sure you are entirely in the friend zone just yet. But not a bad idea to get him out of the office, grab a few drinks (a few is fine!), and see what's what. I'm excited to hear what happens next!
