Hes only 22 but a young 22, im the only female in the office (im 26) and hes so sweet bless him.
Every morning he pops into my office stands bolt upright with his hands clasped as has his little script
Morning, how are you, would you like a cup of tea?
Then he always looks so awkward and rushes away. He doesnt make eye contact at all!
what did i do to him lol!

haha giggle at how cute he is after he leaves. Is he your assistant? I have student assistants and they get younger each year (I know it’s actually me getting older) but the newest is also 22 and he didn’t know what the disk drive was in the secretary’s computer! I just had to laugh. On a more helpful note, maybe have a more casual conversation with him if appropriate. I find that asking about an upcoming vacation or something non-work related really breaks that awkard how do I relate to you time.

Oh my goodness how adorable =)
SO is 23, but…an old 23? I dont know, he’s more of an adult at his age then most men I know in their late 30s
For me, food always works. Specifically baked goods. Maybe pick up an extra bear claw or whatever in the am and leave it on his desk with a note
“Bought myself and the fiancee breakfast and I thought you might enjoy one of these delicious (pastry name) from (bfest place you go to).”

He tries to make small talk occassionally. He came back looking for pens a short while ago and said he preferred my old desk…i thought it was a strange comment but hey ho!!

@ChocolateLime: Take him up on that offer of tea the next time he makes it. Nothing like a little “young blood”. My FI is 3.5 years younger than me.
