I'm a grad student and recently ran into a professor on campus who invited me to grab drinks and chat. The meeting was a bit awkward--I felt as if he wanted to say something to me or ask something, and he would hold his gaze for long periods of time before snapping back to reality and looking down at his drink, sometimes even chuckling awkwardly. He seems to really like me personally though, and he's invited me to hang out with him again this week. I'm just not sure if the interest is also romantic/sexual. If I'm right about him, I've struck gold, but if I'm wrong, I want to find out in least awkward way possible. Anybody have any suggestions on a smooth way of doing it?
