Since I started working at my current job I've developed a crush on a guy who works in a different department in my store.
Everyday we work together he says hi when I arrive and during my shifts he usually seeks me out in the isles (even though he rarely ever works them since he's always working in the stores back room) and chats me up for a short time. Even though I'm shy he still does this to this day and I'm starting to break out of my shy shell around him now.
About a week ago we were briefly talking about movies and discovered we both love Lord of the rings and he said maybe one day he'd bring some collectables of his to work to show me. Then, to my surprise, a week later (after Christmas, a week later, and the first day a see him in a little while) he greets me at the start of my shift and shows me a collectable he brought. I was so surprised since most guys just have conversations and forget them after a few days but he remembered and brought a collectable (which I was hoping meant he was thinking about me during the holiday).
Despite this though his behavior is leaving me kind of puzzled. He goes out of his way to talk to me and is friendly and has a very gentle way of speaking to me but then I see him talking to some of the other workers and he's a lot more jokey and loud. Then I find some days he goes out of his way to find me in the isles to say goodbye before he leaves then others he doesn't. Does it seem like he likes me or is it more in a friendly way? If he does like me is there a way I could hint that I'm interested in him too? Thanks.
