Calling all ladies for advice

Hi ladies. I am seeking some advice this time, rather than giving it. OK, here's the situation. I'm a marketing director so I interact with a lot of women. I have always maintained a professional relationship with them. As a rule, I don't fool around with people I work/associate with. A few months ago I met a realtor at a meeting and we had a good BUSINESS conversation that lasted all of 5 minutes. a day later, she called to let me know she had recommended my company's service to her mother. OK. Mom did do some business with us. She (the unnamed realtor) has been very polite and friendly at various luncheons, etc. I also have a side business in the health and wellness industry, and I called her a couple of days ago to see if she knew anyone interested in my business. She yes and asked me to meet her at a restaurant at 7:00AM, as she had a 7:15AM meeting there. OK fine so far. When she got there she trotted up to me, yes, I said trotted up to me and gave me a very big hug. Now she has some terrific hooters and they were all over me. I gave her the information, and then, testing the waters, I said I owed her lunch. She said she would be out of town for a week and for me to call her when she got back in town. Later that day, I got two e-mails fro her thanking me, for the info, I gave her???? Is she hitting on me, or am I reading too much into this? You can post your advice here, or at my e-mail address on this site. If you are a standard member, don't worry, I'm paying extra so standard members can contact me. I don't want to damage a business relationship by misreading a situation. Any advice is welcome. Joseph

From all accounts you are either dealing with a really extroverted realtor who always follows up on her leads (good strategy for success in the real estate world) or she is making the move on you. Since this is a professional relationship and you really don't know if this his her usual method of operation for business might I suggest the following? Take her out for that lunch you promised and further test the waters. It should become easier to read her when you are at lunch. I understand the boundaries for professionalism but if you don't work directly with her there shouldn't be a problem if the lunch leads to a personal relationship.
