Saturday just gone, I went into this store and this guy was giving my all the signs that he was interested in me. I went in again today, and he did the same. So, I really want to ask him if he has a lunch break and if so, would he like to get coffee during that time (mostly because I can't think of any other way to communicate with him)

HOWEVER, big however. I live in Germany and can't speak the language fluently and I don't know if he can speak english, I mean most of them can, but I'd like to find out. Also, he works in a electrical store, and so I don't really have many reasons to go in there.

It all seems a little awkward, but I would like to see him again. Any thought?

Hi TitaniaFraser,

What if you went in there and just struck up a conversation with him to start off with? That way, you can see if you are interested in his personality as well as his appearance, and will be able to assess whether there is a language barrier and if so whether it's workable for you.

Thinking about it from his perspective, too, it might feel a little strange to him if you just asked him out for coffee without having had any interaction with him first. Make sense?

Yeah, I hear what you're saying. I kind of thought about it properly after I posted this, and realised it sounded a little weird.

I was thinking about starting a conversation also, and if he can speak english, then great. Also, the coffee idea was never really going to be put into place, because it is a little soon, ha.

But thanks for the reply.
