Wondering if you might pipe in with your perspective(s).
I asked my doctor (PA) out several weeks ago when in for a visit and she simply said "I can't" but "you made my day" and she asked where I'd be working and "seemed" (maybe I'm delusional?) to be trying to establish a mutual connection. I found her to be smart, grounded and attractive and the conversation came easy so I had to ask. My impression is that she is single. It was difficult for me to decipher whether she had an interest and couldn't say yes due to the patient-doctor relationship, or, if she simply had no interest and was politely declining. I am completely at ease with "no" but I did want to establish some kind of a communication possibility if she was at all in a position to or cared to have lunch or coffee down the road.
To be honest, Facebook makes me nauseous (my account is inactive more than it's active) but I cross-referenced her profile there and was considering a brief (hopefully tactful) message to at least leave an option on the table. I feel like it will be a challenge to do that without seeming pathological or like some kind of creeper. I'm neither, just attracted and interested in her. I'm tall, in good shape, not ugly, fairly reserved, kind, thoughtful, simple and self aware. I am finishing a second degree in engineering so, while I know I am no Brad Pitt I don't think I would be considered a bad "catch".
In any event, should I leave it alone or give it a shot and would this be advancing beyond usual and acceptable limits?
