perceptions of being friendly! Very confusing
Well the story goes ive liked this guy at my work for a while now and until recently i thought there was no way anything would happen as he is 21 and im just turning 18, im mature for my age but its still a big age difference. But over the last week or so ive been talking to him more and getting to know him better i suppose. we talked and knew each other since november last year but its just over the pst 3 or 4 months that we started to talk more etc. This week we have had the same shifts and have been emailing each other over the work email system which we arent supposed to do really. We just skirted around subjects really and wrote witty coments but i gave him a hint that i wanted his number and he willingly gave it me(stupidly i deleted the email with it in as i didnt want my boss to find out we had been emailing each other!) so i have put my number in his file. Does he think im just a friend from work or something more?
Thats the back story, what i wanted to know is do guys think that if a girl is being nice to them or joking around with them quite openly that they are flirting or fancy them?i ask this as tonight at work i was on a break and a new guy (who me and another friend from work have got to know) and I were talking and after this new guy left my friend said i was "such a flirt". I honestly cant tell when i am flirting and when im just trying to be nice to a guy. Sometimes i intentionally flirt, but thats only with guys i really like. So how does flirting differ from just being friendly with guys? Any help would be great. Sorry if this is all a bit messed up and confusing.
