Okay, so maybe I’m just reading into things. I don’t know. Not a huge deal but it perked up my morning.
This guy comes into my office earlier today. He’s a sales guy that we had an appt. with. Anyway, we talk briefly… and held eyes just a little bit longer than what would be a normal meet-and-greet. He stumbled a bit as he walked around the corner and was like, “Oh, forgive me. I was helping a friend move and I injured my foot…” Haha, I didn’t really think anything of it but a girlfriend of mine said he didn’t want me to think he was gimpy or anything.
No ring either. I know not everyone wears one but in an office/non-physical setting, I’m sure most guys would wear one if they were married, right?
Anyway, he toured our facility and on his way out, he gave me his card. He remembered my name and said, “Well, Diet Coke, let me give you my card… in case Boss Man wants to contact me again.” Now, I’m well aware people hand out cards practically every time they’re in the office so maybe it’s nothing.
Oh, and he smelled INCREDIBLE. I haven’t smelled a man in a very long time.. lol, a good smelling man at least.
Do you think he was just being polite? I’d hate to be totally unprofessional and call him and be like, “Urm, your face is hot.” I thought maybe send an e-mail (has business, cell, and e-mail on the card) thanking him for his time and his prompt response to the issue we had. Would that come across as just professional and not enough of “I like your face”? Maybe wait to see if he finds a reason to contact me/my office again?
He really did smell super duper good. 🙂
ETA: Not sure where I should’ve posted this… didn’t seem to fit with “relationships”.

I’m not sure – not very good at these things, but I think that sending him the email would be an awesome start – maybe add something at the end that is a touch more personal? Like about hoping his injury improves? Then see how / if he replies?

Your instinct is almost always correct! Do it! Can’t pass up the chance at a good smelling man! 🙂

Sounds promising, e-mail would be perfect. Keep us posted!

While I don’t think any of his actions said “I’m interested” – why not send him a friendly email and try to open that door a little bit? You never know when you first meet a person how it can play out.

Diet Coke, are you single right now? If so, I say GO FOR IT!!!!!!!! Definitely e-mail him and for sure add in a little something at the end like the PP said. Woo hoo! Gotta love a man who smells good! 😀

Supposedly scent is an indicator of genetic compatibility! 🙂

@Juliepants: Yes, definitely single, lol. I’ve been back on the market for a little over a month after a 5 month+ haitus from a broken engagement.

Personally I would not email him. I’m sure you gave off “I’m interested” signals while he was in your office, so at this point he needs to take the next step. Most men are finicky and will lose interest if you make it too easy for them. So I would definitely refrain from emailing him and see if he reaches out to you. If not, you can always think of some dumb excuse to email him about in a couple of weeks and see if he bites.

call him! why not? if you develop a relationship, maybe that company can assign you to a different sales rep so there’s no conflict of interest.
speaking of inappropriate: I work in an industry where I have to deal with tons of sales people. many of the men have been pretty flirty (or sometimes slimy). a receptionist from my past company slept with a sales rep after a company dinner. honestly, I think if sales guys can flirt (and more) with clients, then it can go the other way around too!
EDIT: also– sales reps “wine and dine” their clients all the time. make him take you out but pretend it’s for the company. then flirt and see where it goes!

I work in an industry that is all men. My college is 89% male. I am not reading it the way you are reading it…
