Well I sent my Boss a birthday gift. She received the gift. It was confirmed but she has yet to contact me and say thank you. She sends so many mix messages. The message I sent on the card was Happy Birthday. I think we have a lot in common then I gave her my number. Well today I saw her and she spoke loud to get my attention then walked back and forth in front of me and the person I was having an indepth conversation. My boss just stared at me. She needs to make the first move. She could have just approached me. What do you make of this situation?
Advice Please. Does she like me?

"I think we have a lot in common then I gave her my number."

Sounds like we need a bit more info!

You have the hots for your boss? Does your boss feel the same? How do you know?

Because based on the info you gave, it seems a bit inappropriate to give your number to your boss and to buy your own birthday gift from you - you know according to work rules and all.

Could it be that she thought that was inappropriate and is figuring out how to put it to you?

Whatever the history, I would not get involved with someone I worked with let alone who was my superior. Sure there are exceptions, but in general it's a good rule to follow! There really doesn't seem much to go on here and alot of assumptions are being made. Sorry - maybe someone else has input!
