I would like to make friends at work as I am a migrant and am pretty much isolated from the society.
What I am not sure about is how to invite someone (a colleague I mean) to do a casual activity with me and not sound impolite/pushy/unprofessional/needy. Also I am a girl and he is a guy. Don't want to sound flirty as well.
For instance, I have a colleague who seems to be into playing games such as chess, etc.
If I tell him something like this, would it be appropriate?
Hello, hello. If I remember correctly, you like playing chess. My partner and I are not pros but like to play chess and other types of games as well. We thought maybe we could arrange a little game night/day if you are interested at all?
Would appreciate any advice as to how make these sentences in such a way to serve my purpose.
Thank you guys in advance.
