For the past month I've been crushing like some schoolboy bitch on this girl I work with. She's clearly into me, but I'm hesitant to make a move. We are both well-established at the company, and I'm worried that if it goes bad shit could be awkward as all hell.
Can this type of thing ever end well? I feel like she's the type I could settle down with. Please advise, ISH.
George: Ava was one of the reasons I used to like going to work. She was a
friend. Now we sleep together and suddenly, I don't know how to talk to her.
Every time I go to the bathroom I pass her desk. I have to plan little patterns.
I spend half my day writing! Then afterwards, I sit in my office and analyze
how it went. If it was a good conversation, I don't go to the bathroom for the
rest of the day. I see her laughing and talking with other people, they're all
so loose and relaxed, I think, 'that used to be me. I want to go back there
It can only get messy only if one of you guys becomes the boss of one another. That can become a clear ethics violation. Because clearly, there will be favoritism involved.
With that said, love happens. I know 3 couples that work together and got married. Things have been fine for them.
I've almost gotten with a girl I worked with. I'm glad it never happened though. She's fat, ugly and works in the same company (different countries though).
fat and ugly, what gives?
Good point though. I'm above her in rank and a few years older, but I don't really foresee a scenario where I'd be directly managing her. I guess I'm more concerned about the social aspects of everything - people talking and what not.
The way to go: keep in touch with them on a friendship level and once one of you finds another job, call/text and say you miss working with them, meet up for lunch, proceed to smash. But NOT while you still work together
