I work in a building and everyday I get onto the elevator, the same guy from a different floor walks in- he smiles and we stand there in silence. He is so handsome, and just such a good energy... How do I get him to talk to me? And what if he is taken?
You could just point out how you guys are always in the same elevator etc etc and then make some small talk before finally asking about his name as he's about to leave elevator. Then the Door starts to close and you look into each others eyes fifty shades style LOL. Anyway, best scenario would be you two talking to each other a little each time so you get to know one another. If he likes you and wants to get to know you might suggest you see each other outside of the elevator at work too :)
"Pardon me, are you taken?" Seriously. If a cute girl asked me that I'd smile and say yes, or no. At least you would know.
Or how 'bout, "Hi, howzit going today?" Him: "Good. You?" You: "Great. I see you here every day but we never say anything, so my apologies." Oh, he's gonna say something then, right?
My bet is if you're attractive and he hasn't said anything already then he already has someone he cares about in his life. But you can always ask, I've never heard of a guy that would mind that. For all you know he's married. Or gay. Or you're not his type. Or he thinks you're unapproachable. Look at him. Smile. Be open to a conversation.
The best way to find out what someone is thinking or feeling is to ask them. :)
I get the same thing all the time from women dont make the mistake that most women make which is stare and just look helpless. that literally ruins it EVERY TIME for me. dont make his looks a big deal either. For example the females I try to talk to make a huge mission to let everyone know how attractive I am they just come off as desperate and thirsty. so what you can do is treat him like a normal human being, because as a good looking male it gets quite annoying when you are treated in a different manner (we have been dealing with this so we notice when it happens) . have a funny opening, good conversation etc. Make small talk, he should give you the same effort in return. Treat him like a normal human being.
This is a common subject. People always ask questions about getting together with co-workers, or even worse, Bosses.
This is a terrible idea.
Because, everyone will talk about this. No, you cannot keep it a secret. Everyone knows "who's doing who". People can see the subtle looks, body language, etc. People will talk about you, in some cases, negatively, because they know it isn't cool.
If the 2 parties are overt in their relationship, it creates a nonprofessional environment, which can lead to difficulties with the bosses.
If it IS a boss, then problems with the next level of management may occur. Rumors are worse. "Look who's sleeping themselves upward".. on and on.
THEN, if the relationship fails. What then? Well, the talk gets worse. The two parties themselves may talk poorly about the other person. Rumors are started. True or false, a bad environment ensues.
Nothing good becomes of this.
what do you mean by good energy? Reason i ask, is because I've been told i have it.
Just start a conversation by saying hi and how was your day. Don't come off too strong because you don't know who someone is behind the scenes. He probably only allow people to see what he wants you guys to see so don't fall in too deep without investigating and doing a little social media back ground check or from someone you know that will feed you truthful information.
