So, there's this girl that I work with. I don't work with her daily, I don't even see her at the office much, but we work on a similar thing, and occasionally have quite a lot of interaction for a couple months out of the year. Then, it stops and we go back to normal again. So, I had a meeting, and the topic of the meeting was something where we both had to attend.

She is attractive to me.

So, she sat down next to me. She didn't have to, but she did. However, that doesn't mean anything. She knew me better than anyone else in the room. I think that was normal. But, after the meeting, everyone was leaving, and she just kept talking. She had no intention of even moving or starting to leave. So, I just sat there and chatted with her. She didn't really give off obvious signals, except for that. But, we talked about a lot of personal stuff. Then, we got up and walked out together and chatted outside for another 5 or 10 minutes. It was really unusual. Typically, after a meeting, everyone just gets up, leaves and goes back to either their next meeting, or their office. So, I was thinking, this was weird.

Afterward, I was wondering if she was interested. I do know that she lived with her boyfriend. But, I didn't know how to ask about that without it sounding weird or soemthing, just in case I'm picking up the wrong signal.

I think next week I'm going to call her and see if she wants to have lunch. I won't at all say anything. It's more just a friend thing and see how things go.

What do you think based on what I've said? Am I reading too much into this? I realize it could be something or nothing.

I thought she was engaged, and they were planning a wedding, but there was no ring on her finger. So, I was like, hmmmmm. Maybe something happened? Not sure. I figure if we go out to lunch, I can casually ask how things are going and see where she leads that conversation?
