Reading the Signs
So I've never been the sharpest tool in the box when it comes to reading the signs from the members of the opposite sex, there has been many times when my other-half has pointed out that there were many women and worryingly a few blokes checking me out while shopping. For some reason I am totally oblivious to it all...

Anyway, my story begins June 2008 and a new set of NQT teachers turn up at my office for Laptops so they can start to prepare over the summer for their first year of teaching - many of these teachers are quite up themselves, but one 24 year old teacher is very nice to me and my colleagues she actually treated us technicians as something more than a provider of free laptops.

Over the months she visited our office on a fairly regular basis sometimes bringing us home made cakes and sweets (we were very easy to please) but always just to chat/have a moan about all of the other teachers in the school. She came to us for advice and to be cheered up when she was down and used us to vent her anger towards others.
After a while I took a bit of a fancy towards her but thought that nothing would ever come of it so just ignored it. Now as I previously said I'm not good at this sign reading, I thought she was just being friendly.

There was a talent contest at the school (mainly for the kids, but as staff could participate too), I thought it would be a good place to show off my new guitar playing skills. At the audition the teacher showed up to actually support me, I made it into the final where she came along again to cheer me on.

I started to see her around more and more and even started to notice these little signs, she would look at me then look away again while biting her bottom lip, she would play with her hair, she would laugh at all of my jokes, she even put up with my sarcastic side and gave as good as she got.

I finally reallised she liked me too (after my colleague said he's seen all these signs towards me) but how would I react to this, I had a few problems:
a. She had a boyfriend
b. I had a girlfriend

I decided the best thing to do was ignore it, we would still flirt (it progressed to text messages, emails and Facebook) but I never acted on it.

Finally just before Christmas 2009 after being told by the head teacher it was clear I was unhappy at the school (that's for another story) she asked me to clear out my desk and leave the premises immediately. I never got a chance to say goodbye to her, or to have a drunken kiss under the mistletoe. I spoke to her on the phone that night after she had heard about what happened and she actually sounded like she had been crying over it all and was concerned over what I was going to do.

I still speak to her occasionally but I've still never told her how I felt. I've also heard that since I've not been at the school, she hasn't visited my old colleagues as regularly as she used to.

So there you have it, ok not much in terms of flirting, but its my story and I'll say what I want.

Apologies for the length

'she asked me to clear out my desk and leave the premises immediately'

In a school, that's the course of action reserved for porn, assault or other forms of "getimout before the press catch wind of it!" behaviour...

Ha I wish, it was more a case of I handed in my notice without thinking, then on asking to retract it she said no (she didn't like me, especially after I said stuff the school website).
