Am I doing something to creep this girl out.?
Let me start out by saying I’ve never touched,hit on or talked to this girl is a sexual way.
A new girl started in my department about six months ago. We would talk a little when we worked together but not to much. Even in the beginning I felt like she really didn’t like me.I do tend to be quiet and serious at work so I don’t talk to alot of people at work. I know many of the females just think I’m mean and seem intimidated by me.
This girl admitted that the other females told her I wont talk if I’m mad which didn’t surprise me.We would talk here and there but I wouldn’t consider us good friends. It surprised me when she went on vacation and brought back gifts for some of the workers that she gave something to me.
I started talking to her more when we worked together but I did notice that when she talked to me she would not look me in the eye and if I approached her to say something she seem uncomfortable with me standing next to her. I found this odd since she started to act jealous when I was talking to other girls and would come right next to me and start talking about anything to get my attention.
I didn’t let this bother me until one day when we were working together, I walked behind her to grab some rags to clean something and she reacted as though I was going to do something to her. I questioned her about this and she said the next thing she know is she’ll look up and I’ll just be staring at her. This really bothered me and I just stop talking to her but the next day she acted as though everything was fine and trying to talk to me.
She happened to be put in another area a few weeks later so I didn’t have to worry about talking with her but I kept catching her staring at me. Someone who she talked to alot tried to tell me that she liked me but I’m not sure she really told him that.
A few months later she is moved back over in my area and I can tell she is mad that I stopped talking to her but we have to talk because I’m her lead now. Gradually we start to talk again but there seems to still be some tension. We talk find one day and the next day its like we wont say a word to each other unless were are working at the same station. Even though we are talking,it feels like she just talks to me because she is bored and really doesn’t want to be around me. I asked her straight out one day if she was afraid or felt uncomfortable around me and she got mad and said she had no reason to be afraid of me and stormed off.
The next day she asked why I thought that she was and I tell her my reasons and she just say’s I’m paranoid. I say okay and we continue to talk and get along better and she even wants to know what I want for Christmas so she can buy me a present but she still wont turns her head when talking to me and wont actually look me in the face until she just about done with whatever she’s saying. She still doesn’t seem comfortable around me like she does some of the other males at work.
This girl is not shy and has not problem talking with people but she does like attention.
Is it something I’m doing or is this girl just bat **** crazy?
Sorry for the long explanation.
