Even though we worked separate jobs and even lived in different cities for a while we stayed in touch. We were actually roomates for a while a few years ago when I was evicted from my apartment and she actually helped me find a fixer upper home for an obscenely low price and even got her brother to show me how to fix the things that needed fixing. Ok now to get to the point:
We work together again. In the same office. We go to lunch together often and during last weekends blizzard instead of driving 10 miles over treacherous roads she told me she had rented a room across from the office to stay the nite in; the room had two beds and I was welcome to one of them. When we both partied when we were younger we would often crash in the same room so no big deal.
Now im old enough to know not to fuck up a platonic friendship by doing something dumb.
Shes never asked me for money or anything else material. The only thing she occasionally asks me for is to spend the nite in my spare room to get away from her ex. Shes ok with seeing me in pajamas or even my underwear sometimes although shes rather modest.
Anyway she told me this week that she treasures my friendship and then compared us going to the next level to going from a cucumber to a pickle. She cant go back to a cucumber(platonic friends) from a pickle(romantic/sexual relationship). Interesting way to describe it. She went on to say while she still cares about Mark its not the same as it was before they were "just friends" before they got together and she doesnt need another Mark in her life. Both of us have a long history of busted relationships.
And I believe her. As I said shes never asked me for anything except an occasional overnite stay at my place and friendship. She stayed here last nite and we stayed up in my room talking till 3am. She left about noon to go to work, came in to my room and gave me a kiss on the cheek and a pat on the foot and said "thanks hon see you tommorow".
Anyway I went to the office today on my day off to catch up on some paperwork. Lisa was out doing an audit and Amber, a 20 year old brunette who was the only other employee there, looked me me curiously from her desk. After a few moments she said "Gary you got a minute?"
"Sure" I replied.
She walked over to my desk and took me by the arm. "In the back please. I dont like talking personal stuff out here even if theres no one else here"
"No problem" I replied and she helped me up( no I didnt need it LOL ) and walked me to the conference room.
"Dude are you gonna make your move on Lisa or what? She wants you."
"You are joking" I replied a little impatiently and started to turn around to leave.
"Look Gary I dont joke about shit like that. You know me. She spent the night at your place right?"
I didnt answer. But Amber was right about one thing. She doesnt joke around about serious things.
"And she slept in your spare room right?" she pressed on. She sighed. "Ok dont answer me then. Next time she stays at your place ask her if she would be more comfortable in your bed with you. She will say yes. And you better make sure you are off the next day because I dont think you are gonna be in any shape to work." She winked at me.
"Amber she said.." I started to explain
"I will tell you what she said" Amber said impatiently, cutting me off. "Gary" she said almost in a whisper, "She wants your...your dick". She gasped and covered her mouth, blushing. "My gosh I cant believe I said that word." Recovering her composure she said "Gotta get back to work now. And remember Im not joking. I would never do anything to hurt either one of you."
At that she turned around and went back to her desk.
So heres what we have. Lisa telling me she values my friendship(I know she does. No doubt in my mind) Then she starts talking about cucumbers and pickles. Then our co worker Amber tells me Lisa wants me.
Ok im getting a headache.

Your coworker doesn't know. She's meddling.

I think its a little odd that Amber would tell me what she told me. But it is out of character for her to start drama.
At any rate id rather err on the side of caution. My parents taught me that "no means no and not saying yes means no."

I think you should talk to Lisa. I would tell her that Amber told you something, and you were curious about it. And then explain your MO, about how you assumed that she isn't interested because she didn't make it clear. And ask her what she thinks. She could be the type that finds it difficult to bring up the subject and needs you to take the lead.

Ok to let you in on something about me: Ive never been good and being the aggressor. My real life and fictional stories here reflect that.
We couldnt hang out together today because we both had family obligations(she had to go to her dads and my sister is here for a couple of days) and she gave me a hug and a quick kiss on the cheek out in the parking lot and said "See you Wednesday and thank you." I gave her a kiss back, never did that before, and she blushed and for a second I thought she was gonna start crying. "That was sweet" she said almost in a whisper. "But ive really got to go. I will text you later ok?" Another hug and a kiss; she held my arms for a moment. "Forgot how to talk?" she asked giggling, still blushing. "Bye Lisa and thank you" I managed to get out. Then she left for her dads.
She texted me tonite saying I surprised her by kissing her back. I asked if she was offended and she replied "hell no". Then she texted "kiss" and said she was going to bed at her dads house and would see me wednesday at work and would call or text me tuesday.
Thanks for the replies!

Your parents are good teachers. I strongly recommend you don't read into this unless Lisa outright tells you that she is interested. You still have yet to mention if you have romantic feelings towards this woman or if you would prefer to keep it simple. It may be best to take some time to figure these questions out by yourself for the time being before you talk to her or spend another night with her. Is the pickle worth the cucumber?
Think long and hard. Good luck.

She was wearing a skirt and heels, VERY rare for her, and when I let her in she gave me a tight full body hug and actually lifted me off the floor. Amazing since she weighs about 130 and im over 200.
I complimented her on her legs and again she blushed a deep red, then complained her feet hurt so I told her to sit down and take her shoes off and relax. "Gary I hate people seeing my feet but if you insist." she answered. Dont know what she was talking about but shes got the prettiest feet ive ever seen even if they are a bit big but she is rather tall. This is funny because shes a foot freak. She cant resist touching mine, and does so frequently even at work in front of Amber, taking my socks off as Amber watches holding her nose in mock indignation.
She has the evening shift today and left after giving me a smooch on the lips and whispering "love you" before hurrying to her car without giving me a chance to reply.
Am I upset we havent had sex yet?? Nope. Both of us have been burned countless times and ive lost too many female friends after screwing them in the heat of the moment. Its not worth losing a friendship over.

I texted Lisa several times over the weekend and the only answer I got was "busy ttyl". I was a little miffed but kept quiet about it for once. Which is a good thing.
Lisa is a MIS(Management Information Systems) specialist and she got called out of town because one of the companies computers crashed and rather than let it be some jackass decided he could "fix" it himself and ended up screwing it up worse. When she finally did call last nite she said what could have been an easy fix turned into a major job because of someones refusal to admit this was something beyond their capability.
It took me almost 5 decades for me to learn to keep my damn mouth shut.
We are both off thursday and friday this week and I asked her to spend that time with me and she happily agreed.
Oh and when we were talking she asked what I was doing and I said "laying in bed naked playing with myself." She gasped and said "Gary you pig!" then started laughing so hard she was practically crying.
Good thing she has a sense of humor lol.

Any other woman would have gotten dressed and left. "Ohhh my gosh!!" was all she could say over and over again and she was hyperventilating. "Sorry babe" was all I could get out before she cut me off. "Nothing to be sorry about sweetie. I shouldnt have waited so long before I took your dick in my mouth. Nothing personal but I gotta clean up ok?"
She went to the bathroom and washed her face and came back. She finally took her top off and I saw her breasts for the first time.
I wanted to go down on her(even though im not very good at it at all) but she said to just go to sleep and that tommorow was another day. We were both scheduled to work but managed to get out of there after about an hour of checking emails and making phone calls(thank you Joanne! Our supervisor rocks!)
The third nite she finally let me go down on her and she didnt seem dissappointed. I got the blowjob of my life afterward. We didnt have penis vagina sex yet though. I know thats weird but her and I are far from normal lol.
We arent boyfriend and girlfriend in the common sense. Right now we are more like "friends with benefits". We already decided against living together although she will be sleeping at my place frequently. Now for the good part lol.
Shes bisexual. Ive known that for years. As is Amber my co worker. They have been with each other. The three of us went to lunch today(I was off but went to the office to meet them). When we parted Lisa gave me a kiss on the lips and then looked at Amber and said something like "I dont mind go ahead." Amber then gave me a full body hug and a kiss on the lips. I was stunned. Joanne, the petite 40 year old brunette that is my supervisor, just stood in the door of her office watching. "Shorts and flip flops Gary?" she finally said as she looked me over. "Too cold for that yet." Amber and Lisa looked me over giggling and then Joanne asked "Wheres mine?" and she walked over and gave me a kiss...on the cheek. "Ok stud go home now so the rest of us can work!"
Lisa was here earlier and I asked what that was all about. I wasnt as surprised at Amber as I was at Joanne who is normally a very reserved person.
"Well you gotta be deaf and blind to not know Amber has a crush on you. I kinda liked it when she kissed you like that. She wants to do more." She paused for a minute to let that sink in. "Are you open to a threesome?" I stood there slackjawed. "Look you dont have to answer me now. Just think about it. Joanne likes you too. She doesnt want to leave her husband but he hasnt fucked her in a year. He wont even let her suck his dick."
"Joanne gives head?" I asked trying to stifle a laugh. I just couldnt picture that for some reason.
"Honey shes a pro. Her and I doubleteamed my ex boyfriend Mark a few years ago. "
"You mean shes bi?" I asked
"Probably not" Lisa countered. "We were both kissing the head of Marks dick when our lips met. Trust me that girl can suck cock. She puts me to shame. If you dont believe me see for yourself"
"What Gary? Oh and its not like I have sex with everyone I know. Theres you of course, Mark, and Amber. Im not counting Joanne. And before that was Danielle. You remember her. I was with Chris for 2 years. And then some guy I knew in high school. Cant even remember his name."
"You mean im only the fourth guy you have been with?"
"Yep. I have actually had sex with females more than I have with males. You are the only man ive been with that actually cares if the woman has an orgasm. The others get their nut then roll over and go to sleep. I didnt want you going down on me the night you came in my mouth because I didnt want you to feel like you had to. But the next night you did it all on your own. Dont take it personal but penis-vaginal sex is uncomfortable for me most of the time ok?"
"And aside from Amber im not having sex with anyone else besides you. If you decide to have sex with anyone else take precautions please?"
"Lisa who else am I gonna sleep with?" I asked laughing
"Well Amber for sure and probably Joanne as well. But they are in our little circle so they dont count. Amber doesnt want babies so use a condom before you go near her pussy. Joanne has been fixed and doesnt sleep around. Well except for that one time with Mark. So shes clean."
Well time for bed!
