First let me say, I am new to this stuff. Don't laugh!!!!

There's a guy that works at a store in town, that I am attracted to.

I don't know if he is gay, but I would give it 50/50.

We had a brief conversation today and I really like him. I make sure we have eye contact.

How do I get into a conversation were I can find out anything when the talking is so brief.

I could keep going in to the store and end up asking him what he does on his days off and go from there. This sucks since I don't know where I could find him on his free time. Am I getting close to thinking the right way.
