    At my work, it's a professional job so we all have to dress smart and I look quite sharp in a suit but 2 or 3 times in my first week I've locked eyes with a girl for 2-3 seconds and I smiled and she smiled back.

    It's only my first week but I'm not sure what to think of it. Is she just being friendly and is it a coincidence that we've locked eyes?

    I'm really not sure

    I would not dwell on this matter because you have a job to do. Not performing in your job is your P45 for you.

    You are reading too much into it.... smile back, maybe say hello but you are at work.

    We've had some small talk in between on lunch breaks but obviously it's awkward to dive in on a full on chat with a work colleague

    I often smile at people / have people smile at me - it doesn't mean anything in my opinion.

    Same here, although it tends to be the former in my case.

    Keep Work and private life (including intimate relationships) separate!

    You need to be careful as some employers will take exception to employees carrying on their private relationships at work. And, you can be sure that if you are a new employee, your peers, managers will have already noticed! Ask her out, don't jeopardise your foundling relationship with her during working hours.
