I need an external point of view...
I have a crush on a coworker. We've been working on the same floor for two years, but he recently joined my team. I've never had the chance to talk to him until now. I must admit I'm totally charmed. TOTALLY!!! However, I'm not sure he feels the same way. I would like to know what you guys think of the following situation:
Friday afternoon, him, me, two other coworkers and our team leader were having a discussion about random subjects. (It was mostly us getting to know him and him talking about his life.) At some point, I kind of became distant. I don't know why. It's like I wanted to distance myself. So, I kept looking away and getting lost in my thoughts. I occasionally turned my head to look at him while he was talking to our team leader. He put his eyes on me really often while he was talking to her. He looked at me more than he looked at the other coworkers too even though they were also listening to him talking. Then, while he was still talking to our team leader and I was still looking away because I was still lost in my thoughts, he jokingly said: "Sorry Tania! I guess he prefers Spanish to French!" (All my coworkers are English and I'm French.) As he said my name, I turned to look at him all surprised and wondered why I was suddenly part of the conversation. I just laughed and said: "It's okay! "
Does that mean anything? I wasn't part of the conversation he was having with our team leader. He was talking to her about x subject and I wasn't fully listening to the conversation. I was even looking away when he randomly said my name. So, why did he make me part of the conversation by joking about me? I was kind of happy he did that, but... is that really a good sign? I'm probably not objective because I like him. As well, he's really friendly with everyone. So, it's so hard to tell whether he likes me or he is just being friendly with me as well.
