to shit...or not to shit...
so i've always had this policy of not "shitting where i eat." i won't date people i work with. and up until now i thought that this was quite a solid position. i've had a teeny crush on this guy chris i work with. usually these things just go away, sight unseen, and work continues platonically. i got this text message from a co-worker:
"someone likes you. if you had to date a guy at work, who would it be?"
"oh man. just tell me. i don't date people i work with!"
"it's chris. he's nice. maybe just a drink?"
and now i'm in this pickle. for once, the crush has a crush back and actually put out some feelers to see where i stood.
when i first met this guy i didn't think i'd like him much. all the girls in the office fawn over him and all the guys just love him. he was the BMOC in the office. i assumed that he was cocky since he was the cool guy, the popular one. but then i started to talk to him and he's awesome. way smart, funny, a gentleman and the nicest guy.
so what's my next move? stick to my "no work men" regimen or cheat the diet? on one hand, it's hard to meet a decent guy that i'm interested in who is also interested in me...on the other hand, i just have little confidence that this will work. i get claustrophobic so quickly when it comes to boys. i don't want them to call all the time and i don't want to see them more than one weekend night a week so seeing the guy for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week is already too much. ugh.
try it and risk the failure and subsequent awkwardness or stay away from dear chris? any personal success stories or otherwise to share?
