I have a major crush on my supervisor, and it’s making work awkward. What are your thoughts about dating the boss?
Dear, “Smitten Kitten,”
So… you report to a looker, eh? Well one thing’s for sure… I bet it makes going to work a giddy experience (not to mention the fact that you’re probably dressed to the nines each day!)
As much as a “crush” can seem innocent, or you may want to DATE this person, I highly advise against it. Things can evolve into a big mess – from sexual harassment to office gossip… it’s just a big no-no.
While employed, you need to keep your relationship strictly professional. No flirting or hanky-panky – it could seriously jeopardize your job and damage your reputation. Get out there and find someone similar (away from the office) – but when it comes to your boss, consider him (or her) off limits!
Hey readers, has anyone been in a similar situation? What did YOU do?
I’d also love to hear from the managers / supervisors out there – What’s your take on this situation?
