I started my first job (at a department store) back in October. Since then, I have developed my first work crush. Whenever I’m having a really crappy day, just even seeing his face across the room brightens me up instantly. Makes me all warm! He works in a department very near to mine, I see him a few times through-out the day(when him and I work the same day, though!). I, having high social anxiety, get so tongue-tied and nauseous when even looking at him, let alone talking to him. My voice gets all high pitch and everything. I am unsure how to approach this way. I also found out the other day (from a co-worker), that he (the guy) is going to be moving in August to go to a college in the state next to mine. As well as, he’s not really interested in relationships at current. I assume he has and will have a lot on his mind, with school and work and everything. So I am unsure if I even should approach him. I don’t really want to distract him. I just don’t know what to do. Do I approach him? How do I approach him? It’s so hard to get to know each other or approach since we are both working all day! His shift ends earlier than mine too. What to do??
Try to become friends and see how it goes from there. Get to know him. You can ask him if he wants to go have a drink with you sometime. Try to talk with him a few times while you're working together. Talk about regular things, such as the weather and if he likes the job. If you don't take a step, you'll never know. It's not easy to do, I know it isn't. Take a few deep breaths and concentrate on what you're going to say. You could also try to have a conversation with him about college.
