So you’ve caught yourself seemingly smitten by a suit, but don’t know how to land his attention? Well, the suit is different from most since his work hours are anything but typical. Here are the need to knows…
Keep It Brief
This guy is often on the fly and won’t have the time, nor the energy, to deal with answering a bunch of inquiries and flirtatious texts during the day. Avoid using innuendos and, instead, be direct and brief in all your communications during the day. Best way to contact him? Via email since he’ll be more attentive and it can blend in with his work.
Since the suit is so on the go, chances are he doesn’t take the time to tend to himself. He’s the sort that goes out for lunch and dinner or picks up something to eat while sitting at his desk. This is exactly why you should offer to cook for him. Take charge, pick up some groceries, and offer to cook a fancy feast at his place after work. Be sure to pick up a bottle of his favourite wine, and have it sitting on his counter with two glasses so he can indulge as soon as he gets home. A suit-type will fall for someone who makes his life easier and adds a sense of value to it. The way to his heart is through his stomach, no doubt.
Be On His Level
A suit’s life is super structured. During the pursuing process, be open to going with the flow. Suggest apres-work drinks or a boozy lunch date at a place close to his office. Something as simple as this shows him that you’re aware of, and respect, his time.
Work Hard/Play Hard
Many a powersuit lives a work hard/play hard lifestyle. It’s not unusual to see a swarm of suits at bars and patios alike when 6pm rolls around. These guys spend their days working their well-dressed asses off, and then let their cares go come the eve. If you question why this type isn’t getting back to your midday texts, or if you want to talk about work once he’s out of the office, he’ll see you as more of a hassle than anything else. Embrace the work hard/play hard lifestyle and roll with it.
