After that initial deeper conversation, I actively sought him out and asked for professional advice, as well as life advice about random topics.
He was always willing to speak to me, making time to carry a relatively long conversation.
To say the least my initial impression was, 'Great, another pervy older man to deal with'. Then over the first week with him there, I started to see signs he liked me right from the start.
He'd make a joke in a meeting and I'd catch him looking at me to see if I was laughing.
Then work suddenly changed and I was given a major project to manage.
This meant I spent a lot more time working with Kyle than before.
After some time, I found we could have intellectual conversations about things like religion, meanings of life, politics, careers, really lots of different things and we'd both go on tangents but I loved how he challenged my statements.
Since I was working full time, I'd see him every work day.
I tried to deny it, just brushing it off but I was starting to enjoy when he'd interact with me in that way.
Shortly after that, work settled down and I worked less and less with him.
But I remained cool and calm on the outside, (or so I thought haha) and slowly pulled away from his touch.
That incident was probably the most intense and I actually didn't mind it, which surprised me.
