    Ok so I posted about meeting this guy whilst shopping. He worked in the store I was shopping in. Some people on here thought it would be creepy for me to go back and talk to Him and he was just being friendly cos of his job( this was two weeks ago).

    Today I had to return something and didn't think I'd bump into him. As I entered the changing room he was standing there and I didn't hear what he said because I had my headphones on, so I took them out. Anyway as I walked off I complimented his hair and he said thank you.

    I went to the till and he walked from the other side of the store and says ''so you found something you liked then, let me get on a till''. He served people in front of me and I hoped he would serve me. Luckily he did and as I approached his till he said ''i didn't think I'd get to serve you''. We spoke about how are days were going and there was lots of smiling going on. He said something about wanting to go home and I made reference to the last time we spoke.

    When I was getting ready to go he said ''you should take a look at my work and he gave me his name. I asked if he had twitter to. His colleague was there ease dropping. I am assuming he wants me to contact him -right? I'm pretty certain this wasn't just him being friendly. I was thinking to message him about his work and take it from there.

    It's obvious he wants to get to know you why else would he give you his name. Just message him and take it from there.

    Sounds like chemistry happening there. If he wants you to look at his work you definitely should and then contact him. Or, you could check out his work and come up with a reason to return to the store and see what the conversation at that point is like and if it is similar to before just ask if he'd like to meet for coffee on his day off. Good Luck!

    Thanks. The only means of contact I had was via twitter, so I replied to his last tweet letting him know I liked his music ( I genuinely do). He retweeted me and followed me. And that was it.... I kind of expected him to message me or something, I didn't pm him initially because I know some people block people they don't follow from messaging them.

    I probably won't go back to the store though. We'll see how it goes I guess,..

    What store is this if he wants you to look at his work? it sounds like he works at Sainsburys.

    I actually meant to type ' listen to his work ', he is a singer. He's actually very talented, I tweeted him after listening to his music and he retweeted. So didn't really get the response I expected, so not really sure it is interested after all.

    Maybe he wanted more people to view his work? just see if he messages you if you dont go back to the store.

    I would send him one more convo starter just to make sure. You've come too far to just do nothing more, and besides he didn't actually ignore you did he.

    Send him one more msg

    Just a little update...I responded to his message with a short reply thinking he was not bothered. all of a sudden he starts asking all these questions and we spoke throughout the day, then he asked for my number.
