I’m really into my co-worker.
Like, a lot.
We’re so similar in so many ways. He loves horror films, he loves tattoos & has a few, we love the same type of music. I tell one of my best friends, Sandy, that he’s basically me with a dick. He started working at my job about a month ago, maybe a little more. We just instantly connected over music. And luckily, around that time, my relationshit (yes, relationshit) with my ex-ex-ex-boyfriend was finally coming to an end. We had broken up and gotten back together more times than we should have. I was heartbroken that it was finally over, because he was such a big chapter in my recent life. I didn’t think I’d smile again for a long time. Until I met Patrick.
So, the other night, I drove him, Patrick, home after work. He really wanted to hang out with me, but I couldn’t, because I had stuff to do the following morning. We got off work at like, 1 AM. He kept saying everything he could to get me to hang out with him. We eventually agreed that he’d give me a lap dance to “Barbie Girl” (joking).
I finally said yes to hanging out just for a little bit. We went inside his place and I saw his best friend, Ryan, (they live together) and he gave me a big hug. His best friend is cool. After we talked for a minute, Ryan went into his room and left Patrick and I alone in the living room. We sat on his couch. We wanted me to sit cuddled up to him, but I was way too nervous, so I sat near-ish him.
He put on YouTube videos he wanted to show me. Then out of nowhere, he started to tickle me. He’s 6’something”, so he started to lean over me on the couch until I basically yelled “uncle”. Soon after, he started rubbing my head and I leaned in closer to him. We heard Ryan coming, so we stopped. It was just a natural reaction. When Ryan left, we got comfortable again.
I checked the time and saw it was nearing 2:30 AM, so I had to leave. Patrick put his arms around me, held my hand, laid on me, did everything he could to keep me with him. I wanted to stay so bad, but I couldn’t. So, we both finally got up from the couch and he said he’d walk me to the car. While we were walking, he put his arms around me from the back. I didn’t know what to do, so I just went with it.
We finally got to the car and he still had his arms around me. He didn’t let me go. He started to nuzzle his head into my neck. Once he moved my hair from my neck/ear, he started to nip at my ear. Of course, I started to giggle. He then stopped and said “goodbye” after that. While he was walking away, I said,”What, no hug?” He came back and I had my back turned as if I was jokingly going to say no to his hug. He came back and started doing the same thing again. He had his arms around me and was nipping my ear again. This time, I turned around.
When I turned around, he grabbed my hips and pinned me to the car. He started to lift up my shirt (out in the middle of his neighborhood where anyone could’ve seen, but it was 2:30 AM, so everyone was asleep). Then he got his face very close to mine. Our lips touched, but we didn’t kiss. Our lips touched a couple times.
I wanted to kiss him so bad, but everything in that moment was perfect. After that, he walked away and said, “I’m a bit of a tease.” My first thought was, “Yeah, no shit.” I couldn’t believe what had happened with us, because he literally broke up with his girlfriend a week ago & he was already doing this with me. There’s no denying there’s chemistry between us at work. Other people have noticed it, but I deny it. It’s none of their business.
What happened that night was a long time coming. I just didn’t think it would happen so fast. Needless to say, I’ve had a smile on my face these past few days since. :)
