    I bought chocolates for this guy...I like him a lot... he is sweet, funny and makes me feel good when Im with him but we still havent kissed...probably cause we never had the chance, we've been hanging out together for dinner, the gym, dancing lessons, and we recently watched a movie together at this theater at school. The closest we've been from each other was this moment when he was resting his head on my leg and I was playing with his hair and cuddling a bit.

    SO, I bought him chocolates, with a card and everything lol. Im planning to send them to him tomorrow with a friend(she is gonna take it to his office), Im just way too shy to do it my self. I don't know how would someone feel if they get this small gift just like that like out of the nowhere, Im scared to freak him out or something but I like him icon_sad.gif

    Do you see something wrong on what im doing?

    Good luck. I bet a first kiss is soon to follow. icon_biggrin.gif

    Well if it's a big box of chocolates he'll say so your going to make him fat...

    and if it's a little box of chocolates he'll say so you think I'm faticon_lol.gif

    I say do it! Just think of something funny to say rather than just because

    i know... and that also got me worried, thats why im putting the chocolate bag inside other bag and then asking my friend to give it to him. I just dont know where he lives, I only know where he works and I dont want to ask him his address cause that's kinda weird question without a purpose. I can't tell him the purpose cause it's supposed to be a surpriseicon_sad.gif

    Chocolates are a lot less intimate than playing with his hair and cuddling him.

    ...so, why don't you give him this gift yourself instead of involving others (it's Christmas, after all) during one of the above times, instead of at work? Looking at all the topics you generate and the subject matter, it's hard to get my head around you being 'shy'.

    Meninlove:

    I am shy, Ive been picturing that moment...and I just cant, what am I gonna do exactly? Give him the chocolates and then wait for him to tell me something? What if he doesnt even like chocolates and he forces a smile? I would rather to give him his time, its not like we are boyfriends or like we know each other to make me feel confident enough. I would rather to give him this gift through a friend so he can have his moment, andi will just wait for him to call me or something and tell me what he thinks.

    I look like a confident guy and Im aware of it, but when I really like a guy and I have that guy in front of me I just dont know what to do and I like this guy a lot, its like he doesnt even have to say anything to compliment me, the way he smiles, the way he is always funny when we talk and the way he looks at me its just killing me sigh.

    My sage advice is to skip the chocolates and get him drunk icon_biggrin.gif.

    Then send him chocolates.

    Best of luck.

    Yep. Do you want him to think you're shy, or brave and up front and straight-forward?

    you said, "its not like we are boyfriends or like we know each other to make me feel confident enough."
    and yet you had his head on your leg while you played with his hair and cuddled a little?icon_question.gif Gosh, it's just a Christmas gift!

    You also said, "I would rather to give him this gift through a friend so he can have his moment, and i will just wait for him to call me or something and tell me what he thinks."
    which sounds like you decided to do it this way before starting this topic.....?

    Then there's,
    "but when I really like a guy and I have that guy in front of me I just dont know what to do and I like this guy a lot"
    -so now's your chance to change all that...gotta start somewhere.

    I sounds like a very sincere gesture. Good luck and enjoy!

    I would think it was a sweet gesture...for example:

    On Saturday, my bf brought home some Ghiradelli (sp?) chocolate chips - which I could eat by themselves. He bought them without me even asking for them. He just knows I like them.

    In turn, I taught him how to make chocolate chip cookies from scratch. We then sat and watched our sparkly christmas tree and listened to christmas carols.

    icon_redface.gificon_redface.gif barrrrf icon_redface.gificon_redface.gif I know.

    But still just goes to show what a little choclatey sign of affection can do.

    Chocolates work for me. If not his thing, he can always make them an office treat for his co-workers.

    I had a huge (and beautiful) flower arrangement delivered to my office from an admirer I'd never met from Toronto, ON back in 2003. My whole office staff was buzzing about it, I chose to say nothing except, "how nice".

    I think the chocolates are fine, I'd be careful about the office scene. In most cases it might be cool, but you don't know and I'd bypass that part unless you know his situation.

    If I were you I would go there to visit him, have some random trivial chat, talking about whatever you usually talk, and when you finally were about leaving: "Oops, I've jut forgotten. Here you have, Merry Christmas"

    If the relationship is close enough and he's interested on you, you won't have to wait more than 30 min. to receive some SMS from him.

    I think it's a very sweet gesture (yup). As mentioned previously, just make sure they're not the kind you can get at the gas station.

    I would be smitten over any guy that did that for me. icon_biggrin.gif

    Chocolate has been demonstrated to boost serotonin levels...so he will associate you with a feeling of well being.

    Which is a good thing!icon_cool.gif

    I'd think he was trying to get into me pants... and I'd oblige.

    If it were chocolate-chip cookies though, I'd ask him to marry me the next day.

    I'm glad this thread came up - I'm in a very similar position to Charlitos! Thanks for the tips - they pretty much all accord with what I would have suggested.

    *swoon* Okay, not really, but it is super sweet. And if you're worried about sending them to his office, wait until the next time his head is lying on your leg and feed them to him. I know I know...totally dorky and romantical. LOL!
