In our culture, Thai women aren’t the one who will start flirtation with someone they like. Society tends to look at women who have done something like that as desperate women. Moreover, Thai men seems to not like women who start to flirt on them first. In my opinion, this tradition isn’t fair. Because it leaves women like us be just options for men to choose. Why can’t we be the one who choose men?
I’m currently feeling special towards someone at my workplace. However, it’s really hard for me to initiate conversation with him outside office even though I have him in my social media. I’d like to speak to him so I can know more about him. Perhaps we would’t get along well. Or he might not have personality as I’ve thought. Nevertheless, I will never know if I don’t have a chance to talk to him.
It’s quite difficult for me to be the one who says hello to him first. I’ve tried twice and we had good talks as I believed. But I don’t know how long I will keep doing these if I have to be the first one that says hi to him every time. Still, I’m afraid I will miss something if I don’t do that. My best friends suggested me that I shouldn’t think too much. Just do as my heart wants but not too creepy. Anyway, what are the appropriate ways to do it?
Coincidentally, I came across this article on hellogiggles: Non-Creepy Ways to Tell Someone You Like Them, and it was fun to read and quite useful.
I have no idea I will still try to find topics to talk to him more and more if his reaction is still nothing special except an usual friendship between co-workers. Anyway, I just sent message to him via Facebook during this blog writing, and he hasn’t replied to my chat yet. I believe that we need to expect less when we are going to do something like this because if we expect less, we will not take so much pain when we face the heart-broken moment.
