The words that changed everything

So, the co-worker and I hooked up once, almost a month ago. Since then, neither of us has brought it up. We still say hi at work, and its as if nothing has happened. The only indication that something might have happened, is the text message I received from him last Thursday--"Your ass looked hot today, let's hang out soon." Today he came by my desk to tell me that he might be getting promoted and moving to a new building. We talked a for a few minutes and then he left. As I was packing my stuff up ready to leave, he came by my desk and we walked down together. And still, nothing has been mentioned. But things have changed. He doesn't bring up sex around me anymore, and I don't say anything personal anymore. I think he's actually a pretty nice guy and I have a feeling he's seeing someone right now, which is why he isn't trying to jump me anymore.

I feel like I'm in a weird place, because I do like him, he's really funny, very cute, I'm clearly attracted to him, but not in the dating way. But, I wasn't happy being the "hookup girl" either. I had hoped that we would be friends, and I guess under the circumstances, we kind of are. Things could have been majorly awkward, or worse he could have turned into a major douche. In the end, I know it was those 10 words that changed everything (How does a single girl get laid in San Francisco). It was those words that put me in this place and I know I have no one but myself to blame. I guess this is just one of those slightly stinging lessons I had to learn.

P.S. I've been at my job for just shy of 3 months, and I'm going to Mexico City for work the last week in February. Yay!

first, im not very comfortable with the mexico city thing. be careful.

and my advice about the coworker - let it go. i know that you would say the same to me. its clear that he is not as interested as you. do you remember nothing from the book you forced me to read?

there are plenty of other hot fish in the sea.
