How Do You Guys Handle Work Related Game...
Hey Guys -
I just want to get a general consensus of how some of you guys here handle game in the workplace. For me - I am a consultant - and a large part of my day is interacting with clients on a day to day basis, I see ALOT of the same faces week in- week out.
I couldn't find any threads on this - and am looking for some general advice on how I should approach in situations like this - or just steer completely clear and avoid it all together.
Any input is appreciated.
You have to be an above average read on women - a lot of guys misread women who are showing IOIs vs women who are being friendly, and finding ways of getting together with them outside the work environment.
In a situation where you're seeing them on an infrequent basis, you just bring up non-work related things about mutual interests, like you would with any client you might see a favorite sports team being displayed, or some background music they might have on at the time.
You should avoid it until you're able to build a social network of men and women outside of work, and integrate your co-workers into it.
One thing to watch out for are the ones who talk negatively about people they work with. Odds are they're going to talk negatively about you when you're not there.
Thanks for the input. I have a few concerns:

With that said - I know work environments are tough - and once I think I have that above average read - it goes back down to zero when something happens that blows my mind.
I am a good looking guy in great shape with a sense of style that puts most women to shame. I am a narcissistic piece of shit and pretty cocky/pompous.
The target knows this, and I am pretty sure is intimidated by this. However - she has seen and overheard me with other women in the office - and knows that I can have normal conversations and be a civil person.
So, earlier this week I had the chance to spend a little bit more time with her and a 2nd girl who I have a better working relationship with. The 2nd girl sparked a convo and the target found a way into the conversation, but changed the subject almost immediately to: "I want to hook you up with my hot friend who has money, etc, etc, etc". This kind of mindfucked me - because I can't really reply with my natural smart ass comment because I want to be careful about offending people in a work environment, so I kinda shrugged the entire thing off and played it cool about being single, not seeming needy, etc.
The vibe has been here for about 8 months. at this point, I am wondering what the fuck her real intentions are.
Aside from all that - I know I really need to work on being more humble and collected around women. They view me as a straight up douchebag because I am a flashy prick.
personal question; has sarging gotten easier for you now that your older?

I am actually in the final round of interviews for a consultant position. If I do get it, I do not plan on making moves on any co-workers. However, I would befriend the hell out them to gain access to their group of hot girlfriends. Dude, she said she will hook you up with a hot friend of hers. How you respond and not sound like a douche bag, "I don't chase girls for money, but I am willing to meet her. She better be cool."
"Those who hesitate masturbate"
Don't dip your pen in the company ink.
Obviously, gaming women at work is pretty easy, since you see each other on a regular basis. It is usually a bad idea though, when things don't work out you still have to see them often. Most people don't handle break ups well, and you don't want your personal business being spread around the office.
Now, if you want to game your coworkers friends, that is a different story. You should still be cautious, because friends talk and your coworkers may find out more about you than you want them to know.
Personally, I love to tease my female coworkers. It is a good way to stay sharp and I always have them chasing me.
