Am I reading too much into it?

Always quite liked a guy at work, we work in a big office so have not crossed paths much apart from at drinks (obviously all stopped now!) - he messaged randomly as I am leaving to pass on well wishes and we agreed to do wider office drinks when we all can. In the meantime, we got chatting about a mutual interest and he has emailed about it, asking if I have heard of a certain app (I was asking for advice on hobby and he just messaged out of the blue).

We are both roughly same age (20s) and pretty sure there is no gf on the scene as he wants to move countries in the next year or so (actually something I want to do too so we chatted about that too)

Is he interested or just friendly?

No way of telling, but keep the conversation up and you will soon be in a better position to know! 😊

It’s perfectly possible he didn’t ask you out in case of potential workplace awkwardness, but now you’re leaving feels free to express his interest..?

Thanks all! I have replied, I hope he is interested but obvs no idea

Our convo was about me using a skill I learnt years ago in my next role and panicking about it - his message just said "Have you heard of xyz app?" so I have replied - will see if I get an answer!

I say friendly, sorry

for context i ended our original convo a couple days ago and then he randomly messaged at 9pm this eve with the suggestion, so no real reason to get back in touch - tbh am sure it was friendly though, thanks all

Can you push it a little bit, flirt without making it obvious and see how he reacts?
