I'm an attractive yet introverted guy, who at my age still gets froze up when I talk to a girl whom I am attracted to.
Sure I've dated a bit, but its almost always been with women who make the first move. While this is a thing I'm grateful for, I feel I have missed out many times in my life by not being able to tell the girls I am most attracted to that I like them.
I'm at a point in my life where I am ready to date a girl exclusively (a couple bad breakups made me swear off dating for awhile), and I am currently absolutely crazy for a girl I work with (Im a cook/chef, she's a waitress).
It is a busy kitchen, and I'm so focused on my work that I don't always have the time to make small talk, and even when I do, my mind is multitasking so hard that It's hard to be cheerful and witty.
She has gone out of her way to do nice things like rub my shoulder for a couple seconds "just in passing" but not much other than that. To be honest she's kind of different from most other girls, which is one of the reasons I like her. The problem is that this also makes it harder to gauge how and feels.
Anyways, I feel kind of dumb asking this, but would it just be okay to come out and say, "Hey P..., I just wanted to say that I really think that your a nice person, and that I kind of like you? (Assuming I break a little more ice).
I don't know. I'm just tired of not letting her know how I feel, but also don't want too make her feel awkward at work.
