The long and short of it is this:
I work in a medical library and there's this doctor who I think is cute but we've not really spoken. He's been in a couple of times to renew books and I decided to remember his name (because he's cute. ) Anyway, he came in a couple of weeks ago to renew his books again and instead of asking him for his name I just typed it in. Wasn't expecting him to comment on this but he did; he asked me if I'd remembered his name and I said yes. The next time he was in (about a week or so later) I caught him looking at me three times, and each time our eyes met and he didn't look away. The first time I hadn't realized he was there, but then it was like he wanted me to see him looking, because my back was to him and I was 'casually' turning round to have a look. I tried to tell myself that maybe he was just randomly looking in my direction but I thought 3 times was a bit too much for it to be this. He hasn't been in since and I'm slowly going insane thinking about what it means. He's a doctor so of course he's busy and can't be in the library whenever he feels like it. I know I need to smile at him and see what happens but the longer I wait the more I doubt myself and what I saw!
(Oh and I don't know if this means anything, but when he came in and asked me to renew his books he was sort of leaning in to speak to me when really he probably didn't need to. )
So yes, that's it. I was just looking for a guy's opinion on this- would you be flattered if someone remembered your name? And would you stare 3 times at someone you didn't find attractive? I know you can't get inside his head but please, help a gal out! :D

Yes, sounds like this doctor finds you attractive. Yes, you DEFINITELY need to smile at him next time you see him, and do your best to be friendly (without seeming too aggressive). But what else should you do? Well, you work in the medical library, and you know the doctor's name. It shouldn't be that hard to find out a little more about this guy (including when his books are due, how often he borrows books, when he's likely to be back in the library next, etc). I'd start there, with some basic research, and then do your best to arrange another "chance encounter" in the library, and see how that goes. If that doesn't work, you can go to Plan B. But I'd start there.0
