So I'm a receptionist at a staffing company, and cute guys come in all the time! and they are always really nice, make small talk and such, and I ALWAYS hope one of these days one would ask me out! so far nothing..so I'm wondering, if you walk into an office and you notice the cute receptionist, how would you make it known you think she's cute/pretty, what kinda things would you say, would you ask her out? if not, why? what can she do to make it easier for you?
Although this was a fun weekend, I will say that it's been one of those weekends as well. From the cute receptionist at the Porsche dealer, to the cute waitress after that, to the other cute waitress today, to the cute girl I saw outside that restaurant, to the cute girl at the gas station beside me, to whatever other girl I saw this weekend...you all sure are an awkward bunch. It's getting to the point where it's pissing me off because I literally never experience this elusive smile and blush that I hear other guys have experienced.
With girls in situations like a receptionist or someone else on their job, it definitely seems like they aren't down for anything more than what's required. That means no small talk- which I'd usually be happy about except that there is no other talking. I think back last summer when I was out at a restaurant, the waitress genuinely seemed to be either friendly or flirting. But other than special cases like that, everyone else just clams up. And this is all coming from a guy that is usually somewhat reserved myself.
So yeah, there's your answer. Hitting on girls is an art, and one that a lot of girls might not take too far when a girl seems to be preoccupied about her work. It just doesn't seem like the time or place to be flirting with a girl.
I suppose it depends on the scenario at hand, but if I was in the position of one of the cute guys walking into your office for example and noticed the cute receptionist as you say :P I'd make small talk with her if possible; if I was interested in her I'd probably just give the impression that I am via chatting to her nicely, asking her questions about herself and whatnot, and compliment her etc. (though not come on too strong! I'm pretty shy in general anyway so not that type, it'd probably take me a bit of time to come out of my shell).
If the receptionist was showing no interest in me whatsoever, and worse seemed irritated, I'd wrap it up pretty quickly, but if she was being sweet, appearing interested and possibly giving me signals (this'd make it easier for me as it'd increase my confidence and make me more likely to ask her out!) I'd continue talking to her, and if I thought I had a shot I'd ask her out or at least ask for her number, I mean why miss the opportunity? Life's too short to not take chances! :P If she said no then so what, but ultimately to answer your question yes I would ask out the cute receptionist if I could and thought she could be interested in me, unless it was an iffy situation and I could get in trouble for it.
i don't like asking women out who are working, there is no way to know if they are just being kind because they have to. so anything you can do to show your being kind because you obviously like them and want attention or what ever would help.
"how would you make it known you think she's cute/pretty"
-> I wouldn't because women these days have demonized and made men feel like sh*t for approaching or asking women out in professional environments. We can be fined, demonized, and even publicly declared "predators" or be accused of "cornering and pressuring a woman" if we ask one out as she's working at her desk (even if we're just clients.
-> WE ALL have worked at jobs where there was a receptionist woman. And we've all heard our receptions coworker WHINING and complaining about being asked out by clients. Since then we've gotten the message that if we approach a receptionist, she'll mock us in front of her colleagues.
"what can she do to make it easier for you?"
-> Aske me out? Duh?
It's 2011, stop making excuses. If you see a cute guy ask him out.
