So... After having some folks over for dinner, people start to trickle away until it was just me and another fellow. We talked for a while longer until it was really late (or early morning). He could have left at the same time as another person but he hung around.

Guys: What's your take on his lingering around?

Gals: Should I have done something? (Yes, he's kinda cute and all ;-) )

It seems like you're at least somewhat interested in him. See if you can get in touch with him to let him know you enjoyed talking and would like to continue the conversation over dinner or drinks. It doesn't always have to be the guy who initiates these things, after all.

Would you have liked something to happen? is the first thing important. If so, take Steen's advice and insert a hint or two (or a clue-by-four, if he's the shy kind). If not, still follow Steen's advice and insert a "let's be friend" hint, so he won't get any false hope.

now it all depends on what kind of guy it was.

Either he was staying around just to be kind and generous and didn't want to be rude and leave.

He just likes talking to you (you know how hard it is to find some intelligent conversations sometimes)

or he likes you and wanted to get to know you better. but if you like him back then don't scare him away by saying what spungo told you.

If you'd have done the right thing, you'd be complaining today about a sore back and/or legs, not asking us for our opinion on all of this.

BBK - I see two possibilities for his loitering....

1) he didn't want the evening to end [Wink]
2) he didn't have the moolah to pay for a cab.

Now, I imagine that you will have learned enough about him during the evening to discount the second possibility, so we shall conclude that Option 1 is the answer.

In which case, what should you have done??? If you felt an all-consuming desire to jump his bones, then that's what you should have done.

If, as it appears, you simply thought "Hmmm - is this cute guy as interested as he seems?" then perhaps you should have suggested meeting sometime for a coffee, or maybe dinner. But all is not lost (if that was the first time he met you, he'll be thinking about that evening for at least a week)...get in touch with him soon - if you are curious about what could have happened [Wink]

Thanks for the more useful replies. :-)

A few other bits of info:

1) He works at the same company but different department. So it would not be too difficult to meet up from time to time.

2) I know him but not well enough to really know what sort of guy he is, if you know what I mean.

Grummash: I like your first theory there. It seems to jive. But the 2nd one doesn't work because he has his own car. [Smile]

Steen & Stereo & Stevenback7: I met up with him late this afternoon with the pretense of "planning" something with a mutual friend. This mutual friend knows about my thing for this guy so he's been great in playing along. [Smile] So, during the course of the conversation there might possibly be something towards the end of the week. We'll see. [Smile]

To those other comments/suggestions: Cute. But I don't think your suggestions will work. I certainly don't want to scare off the guy! [Wink]

You should had taken that chance to know him better and let you be known better, too, and start a nice friendship. [Wink]

Alright, alright, since you're all waiting...

Thursday: Ended up going out to dinner. Talked at the resto until about 10:30. Drove back to office so I can get my car to go home.

Saturday: Pizza and movies at my place with him a few other friends. After last friends left he hung around til almost 5AM. ;-) Sorry, I won't divulge any more details here, but I will say things are progressing albeit slowly.

But slowly? You've only seen him a couple of times!! And since you're "not divulging" everything we have to assume it's not moving all that slowly. [Big Grin] Glad it's going well, boobookitty.

And I hear guys love it when the woman makes the first move. [Wink] Just sayin.

Many, but not all, men do. It's very flattering to have a woman make the approach as long as she doesn't come on too strong (although over-the-top approaches work on a select few of us).

In other words, ladies, it's okay to tell the man you're interested in that you want him to go out with you, but it's probably best if you didn't scream "Sex! Now!" as you grab his arm and start dragging him off.

... although that totally would work on me if the right person did it. [Big Grin]

I've counted to three here.

1) Party where he stayed latest.

2) Dinner.

3) Pizza with friends.

Next time you're together ... Time for the latex, nipple-piunching lassie suit.

Last time I checked, Cap'n Vic had it.

Wash it good first.
