Twice now I've encountered the same attractive man in my office building that has checked me out. The first time I saw him was a few weeks ago while walking inside the building with my coworker, Anne. We passed him in the hallway on one of the upper floors while he was talking to another guy, and as we walked by he seemed distracted, staring and smiling at me while trying to listen to what the other guy was saying to him. When Anne and I reached the stairway to go up to the next floor, I turned back to look at the guy, and he was still looking at me, so I smiled back before we went up the stairway.

The second time happened the other day. He and another guy were pushing a bin full of wiring and what looked like computer equipment (I have no idea what he does for a living; could be some kind of maintenance work with the building.) He made the other guy pull it to the side and let us pass, so when I walked by this time I said, "Hello, how are you?" and smiled and he was friendly back. After we passed I wondered if he was still looking at me, although I didn't turn around to look. I think I would have been embarrassed (although I don't know why.)

He's tall, cute, wears a baseball cap, and is probably a little older than I am. There's also something about him that reminds me of Jimmy Stewart; it isn't that he looks like him, but has that same all-American, friendly, warm persona about him. 

However, as appreciative as I am for him and running into him twice, I don't think much of it and don't have a crush or anything like that. I'm fully aware now that I must screen men right away to make sure they're actually available. A friend asked me if he wears a wedding ring, and twice I just haven't had the chance to look at his hands. However, I'm also aware that even if he doesn't wear a ring, it doesn't mean he's not married. My boss is married with two kids and for whatever reason, doesn't wear a band. (I realize it's a personal preference but personally, if I were married I'd want my husband to wear a ring and I don't think it's a good idea for a married man not to wear one, but that's another post topic for another time.)

I'm certainly not thinking, "Oh, a soulmate!" when I see this guy. It's not that I'm pessimistic, just being impartial because I don't know anything about him. I figure if it's meant to be, things will come together and we'll get to know each other one way or another. I'm thinking more along the lines that he's an indication of my vibration and feeling better about myself and being able to attract someone attractive. A good sign, we could call him. 

More to follow on this topic, I guess...but for now, Mr. Fix-It Jimmy is a step in the right direction.
