I think you need a good stiff drink and a cold shower. Forget about her and this fantasy.

I'm not here to judge your intentions but there isn't much to think about until you two have gone for a few lunches, then drinks after work, and then dinner.

All of the "signs" you've noticed are perfectly normal and friendly behaviour in an office.

How does your wife feel about this? Maybe you should talk it over with her and tell her all about the woman at work whose bases you'd like to run.

I hope when you're with the other woman you're picturing your wife sobbing, devastated. Or maybe her face when she was giving birth to your children.

I say...

be sincere with her... tell her that you would love to be with her a few hours to get to know her better... and if she agrees then you'll know she's in for the ride...

I hope I don't come across like a dick for saying this, but at my University, there are many international students. Most of them are Indian. At least 30% of the computer science department is Indian. I don't judge them for it, but the simple truth is many of them smell like 3 week old BO. I have a lot of Indian friends that I hung out with, smoked weed, and shot the **** with. They were cool, and I liked hanging out with them, but I would be lying if I said they didn't smell bad .

Once, I was working on a group project with an Indian girl who had a very unusual, but pleasant, smell. She a body odor that was not unpleasant at all. Then again, she was very attractive, so my nose might have been selective.

So do I...although I wonder now if he's a troll, as well as a few other posters in this thread.

Whoa, careful there. This is bound to backfire. She'll think he wants to get to know her better as a friend and then he makes a move...
Can you spell lawsuit?

To the OP: Stay away from her. I don't have the impression that you are on the same page. She is looking for friends and platonic company in a strange country. You just want to use her.
