Guys - how would you react to this? Watch

    I live in an apartment complex and saw a guy in the concierge earlier - he checked me out and I found him cute but didn't think much more of it. He went out of the building and then came back and I overheard him telling the receptionist his flat number which happens to be in the same building as me. I left the concierge, went back to my flat, and then he was walking in to my apartment building as I was leaving it a few minutes later. I held the door out for him as he had lots of stuff, he thanked me and I said it was OK.

    I think he is so cute and I want to know him but I don't want to come off as desperate. Right now I know nothing about him, just his flat number. I don't know if he is single but I kinda got the feeling he found me attractive. I was in my gym gear which I guess helps, and I was standing next to him at one point and it was a little awkward for both of us which I don't think it would have been if he found me ugly. I'm usually quite good at judging whether someone is in to me but for all I know he could be living with a girlfriend. I know there's a chance I may bump in to him again, but there are usually so many people around the complex that I may even struggle to pick him out/ have forgotten what he looks like.

    I would like to get my message across effectively but I don't want to have my pride hurt, say if he is taken or is not interested. I also don't want to come off as easy. I was thinking of slipping a note in his letterbox/under his door to ask him out. This could go one way or the other though and if he declines/doesn't respond at all I'm not sure I could face the embarrassment of potentially seeing him around.Would you find it weird if you received such a note?

    If he lives in the same building as you, your paths should cross when you hang around in your gym gear outside his door sooner or later. When they do, smile and hopes he smiles back. With any luck he'll strike up a conversation. If he doesn't, do so yourself. Just something inconsequential about the weather, or the local area, or anything really.

    From there you should get a good idea of whether he likes you and suggesting a date would go down well.

    Good luck!
