    And today went to a training session and met a woman and we really hit it off..

    Only thing is she works in a different building/dept, etc and I only know her name.

    How weird is it for me to IM/email her about going to lunch? Or is it?

    Probably a dumb thread but figured I'd get some differing opinions on how to approach her and the subject, etc..

    Just my two cents, but I'd find out through the grapevine where she works and then "accidentally" cross her path. Patience.......

    If you really hit it off then I wouldn't hesitate to take action whether it's in person or via email.

    True. I guess it's more that I've never really approached anyone from my previous jobs so wasn't sure of the best way to go about it.

    E-mail her and ask her to lunch and see where it goes from there. Good Luck!

    I recommend this. "Accidentally" run into her and start small talk then ask her to coffee or lunch.

    Remember, men usually perceive things differently than women. I'm not saying she wasn't into you, but you don't want to come off as a creep or stalker.

    Get that ass.....

    +1 for for this.

    The "accidentally running in to her" approach is stalking and could backfire on a number of levels.

    I agree. Be direct. Just email her and say you'd like to know more about what she does for the company.

    If you know her name you can check her out first online via social media searches. Some people seem really nice at work then you find out they are total losers or worse, degenerate gamblers. You wouldn't want to get hooked up with one of those would you?

    I don't know, that sounds like it could be fun.

    I must be a fossil, but if you know her name, why don't you pick up the phone and call her at work? Or, is that sort of thing not done anymore? Celebrating my 25th wedding anniversary this year.

    Perhaps because if someone is very busy at work, an email is less intrusive than a phone call? An email doesn't demand an immediate answer, so she won't feel pressured to answer right away.

    All I can think of is a lecture I once received from a former boss, about not sticking your pen in the company ink well.

    As much as I'd like to agree with this 2 of my employees got married last month (I gave a great speech). This is now the third marriage between my employees in 3 years.
    And yes there were lots of jokes about what kind of company am I running here.

    If it all goes south I could have 6 very unhappy people.

    So, send her and email asking for lunch, you never know where it might lead and the worst thing that could happen is she says 'no thanks'.

    I believe that some companies address this in their workplace and require new employees to read and sign a statement that they understand the company policies.
