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?

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! πŸ˜€

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…
