We are both involved in a cycling class at the same gym. I signed up there years ago and she joined shortly after she was hired. The gym is right next door to our work building so it is not uncommon for people at work to go there. Since we work together and go to the same gym, we often leave together after work. Sometimes she uses the bike in front of me and often turn back while cycling to give me a big smile. It makes me feel special, but I see her randomly smiling to other people at work too.
One day after cycling class, she asked me what I was doing and I said I was going to Au Bon Pain. She asked to join. Since then, our friendship blossomed. We eat lunch together at work and still get food after the gym. We enjoy sharing stories and talking about our past.
I never once stepped over the friendship line with her. She is still new to this area and does not have many friends so I can understand that maybe her friendship with me grew out of convience? She was looking for new friends and there I was?
At work, we are at that point where we are IM-ing each other a lot about non-work related topics. We also text into the late night after work. We banter and talk about people at work. Most of the time, she is completely engaged in our conversations and end the night, but there were a few times when I could tell she was responding for the purpose of just answering my text and not really engaging in the conversat
Most of the time, she is completely engaged in our conversations, but there were a few times when I could tell she was responding for the purpose of just answering my text and not really engaging in the conversation. I always acknowledge those moments and cut the conversation short.
I like to think she is a tad interested in me. Am I overthinking it?
