I have this coworker. We had seen each other in passing, but never spoke or worked together with each other......until yesterday. From afar I thought he might be attractive. Hadn't made my mind up. After working with him, my suspicions have been confirmed: I like him. Now understand that I've never been with a boy in any capacity, never asked anyone, never discussed my sexual preference with anybody. I give people no reason to feel uncomfortable or anything like that. So we're working and talking, getting to know each other, asking and answering questions. Then he brings up how hard it is to find a girlfriend where we live and we make light of it and joke. First thing that pops into my mind is that that is his indirect way of letting me know he's heterosexual in case I have any intentions. I didn't do anything to warrant him to think I was coming on to him though. I don't do that. I have never asked out, dated, had sex, etc. with anyone I've been attracted to. I just don't. So I feel while his action is appropriate when it is called for, I felt rather offended considering it wasn't warranted. That's if I'm even correct in my own assumption that I'm making, because I realize I'm doing the same thing I'm accusing him of doing: Assuming. The irrational side of me, entertained the thought that that was just him informing me that he's single and available. Either way, this was yesterday, I'm over it, we both worked 6 hours together and are cool, spoke and joke around throughout the rest of our work schedule and ended on a good note. It's just that one moment that.......I've never been met with that before. Seen it on televison, but that doesn't happen to me. I felt like such a creeper. Causes me to question my entire identity (too dramatic? okay perhaps not ENTIRE identity, but rather how I come across to people). Perhaps I'm not as self aware and as comfortable with my demeanor, manneurisms and self as I thought if this is the reaction they spur forth unbridely from people.
