First Moves

Walking into the conference room the first day, I had no idea what to expect. It was my first meeting for the new position. I was meeting with the department director, my colleague and an outside consultant, to go over the project plan, in progress.

I was nervous, but excited at the new opportunity. When I entered into the room, the meeting was already in progress. I sat quietly until the conversation paused. introductions were made.

It was at that moment that I allowed myself to look into his sincere, smiling, green eyes. With outstretched hands, a cordial handshake, and a warm hello, introductions were complete. Throughout the meeting, my attention wandered, as did my eyes, to his eyes, his nose, his cheeks, his neck, his hands. All waiting, begging to be kissed.

This was three weeks ago. I continue to daydream during meetings and such. His neck, beneath my lips. Pressing him against the wall of the hallway. Straddling him as he leans into me on the board room table. Clothes moved aside just enough to touch one anothers most intensely sensitive spots. Nibbling his nipples.

Now, what do I do? Having been attached forever, and meeting men only through here. How do I show my interest in this man without being overt in the workplace? Suggest away!
He is a bit shy, and we have yet to be alone.

Does this man possibly know you are attached? If he is the shy type (I am too) he may not ever attempt anything. Is he married? If so, drop it, he may be happy. If he's not married, you are probably going to have to make the first move. But don't do it during business hours. Maybe catch him in the parking lot and tell him how you feel. I don't know many men who would'nt mind being approached even if they wind up saying no. Good luck to you. Spirit

Thanks Spirit.
He is not married, or attached in any way.
He most likely knows I am married, unhappy, and planing a divorce.
Thanks for the advice. I am giving it a bit longer. We have several more weeks worth of work to complete. WOOHOO!!!!!

Find someone else. Work place romances should be off limits. It will hurt your career, and more so the woman than the man.

That's good advice from Blueguy. From experience I know it isn't always easy advice to follow. Most jobs allow us to get to know our coworkers better then most everyone else in our lives. The catch is we "live" with them 8 hours a day. Sounds like life at home is unpleasant. What if work also became unpleasant?

Blue and Slo,
Great advice that I give to friends as well. The catch here is he is only a consultant that will have completed his assignmnet in 8 weeks. So, not quite the usual workplace tryst. I like to take things slowly, so, by the time the contract is over, perhaps then something will ignite.
