Relationships are tricky business — especially when you work together. But if you have a hunch that your best friend in office wants to be more than just that, this quiz can help you out:

Even though you work in different departments, she makes it a point to come to your desk at least thrice a day.

a) Yes — she's always popping by to say hello or borrow stationery.

b) Not really — we only see each other in the hallway or lunch room.

She shows interest in what you do and often asks about your life outside work.

a) Yes — we tend to talk about everything but work.

b) Our conversations are limited to work and the occasional weekend tale.

When she is talking to you, does she stand close enough so you can tell what scent she is wearing?

a) Yes — she seems to be quite comfortable in my presence.

b) No — she is very professional and maintains a distance.

How often do you meet up for lunch with her?

a) We eat together everyday.

b) On occasion, but it is usually in a larger group.

When you do eat together, does she pick food from your plate?

a) Yes — and I pick food off her lunch tray too.

b) No — we have never shared food.

Has she suggested meeting after work?

a) Yes — but I'm not sure if it will be a date.

b) No — but I would be open to it.

ANSWERS

Mostly As

This girl already sees you as more than a co-worker so maybe it's time to ask her out — on a real date. Constantly coming by, standing close to get your attention and eating together daily are all signs she likes you — like really, really likes you. Sure, offi ce romances are tricky, but sometimes it is worth the risk.

Mostly Bs

While the both of you do share a friendship, it is unlikely that it will develop into anything beyond that. She does like you but in a professional atmosphere. Not showing interest in your life outside work and not making it a point to bump into each other shows that she wants the relationship from 9-5. Period.
