I'm Not Sure What To Call It

I am a store manager. Part of my job every day is to go to the bank and deposit the money. Fortunately for me, the bank that we do business with several quite attractive tellers. Now, of course that is good business sense, and of course it is part of their job to be friendly. So, when a cute new teller started a few weeks ago, I was friendly to her, but nothing more than just a casual conversation.

I don't consider myself to be a confident person by any means, but I do feel comfortable around the tellers. Maybe it's simply the camaraderie of being in the service industry. I'm not sure.

So fast forward to about a week ago. I'm minding my own business, going through the drive-through for some change. The new teller is not waiting on me; she has another customer in the other lane. But, she surprises me a bit, as she briefly interrupts what she's doing with the other customer and waves at me and says 'hi'. Of course I say 'hi' back to her. The same thing happened a couple days later. I told one of my female coworkers about it, and she seems to think that there's more to it than just friendliness. Confused, I pondered on it and decided she could be right.

So, for the last week, this new girl has not been at work. I think she was on vacation. I thought about asking her out, but I didn't really want to do that at her workplace. I think it's disrespectful to put someone on the spot where they can't run away. :P I don't know much about her, but I think I'd like to test the waters.

Finally, last night, an old friend visits me from out of town. He's not like me at all--he's the kind of guy that women scramble just to get close to. So, after we hang out for a while, he wants to go out to a bar, and I agree. It had been a long time (years) since I had been to a bar, so I wasn't really expecting much. And when we got there, it was already kinda late. But, we did have a good time, and, after a few drinks, lo and behold, the young lady from the bank comes in! I went over and talked to her (which is itself quite out of character for me), and I had intended to ask her for her number at least, but when I was talking to her, she didn't seem that interested, so I didn't pursue it.

Thus, as my title say, I'm not sure what to call it. She was seemingly into me, and I was not, and now the roles have reversed. What happened? And why the sudden cold shoulder?

Just rhetorical questions, and thanks for reading. :D

After a couple of recent encounters, I'm no longer unsure about her flirtation toward me; I'm pretty confident of it. Now, I have to decide within myself if I'm going to pursue it or not. I kinda like the status quo, but who knows?

One of those life's loose ends I guess.<br />

I have several and after a while, I had to read the journal or my blog to remember them. They're okay though, always put a smile on my face later on :)

I haven't had a chance to talk to her this week, as she was working at a different bank branch. I can't help but think that maybe I'm making something out of nothing, though.

I'll keep you updated if this changes. :D

Nice one. I love reading stories like this :)<br />

I hope the cold shoulder was just a one off though - and that this is still a developing story. (Can't help it, it's the romantic in me!)
