I have been crushing on someone at work since xmas. It didn't hit me straight away, probably because I've been contentedly single for a long time - but, since it did, I haven't been able to get her out of my mind.
I work in the classroom of a hospital school, and she's one of the therapists upstairs. We don't naturally cross each other's path.
At first I thought I was getting signals from her - holding eye contact *long* after I would expect someone to look away, visiting the classroom to collect youngsters for a session and always seeming to sit near me and make conversation... but the combination of my anxiety when trying to talk to a woman I fancy, the inappropriateness of flirting in the classroom, and not knowing if she's into me or just generally terribly friendly have all made it difficult to pursue.
I did come into work unnecessarily one half term under the pretence of some paperwork, and headed up to her office hoping to make conversation, but then nearly had a heart attack walking to the door, lost the power to speak when I saw her sitting there chatting with a colleague, even though she blatantly invited me in, and promptly crawled back downstairs fighting to breathe!
But to cut a long story short, she's leaving in a couple of weeks, and I'm leaving a few weeks after that, and I don't have her number, and I don't think she knows I like her, and the timing just never seems to be right to let her know.
If she's not into me, then that's fine. But if I never let her know that I'm into her before we head off in different directions, I'll regret it. So, given that everytime I see her my knees go weak and my vocabulary melts out my ears, I would appreciate advice.
What would you do?
