The Cute Guy at Work

    When I first saw him a few months ago, I thought "Whoa, who the fuck is that?"
    I've finally gotten a chance to with him, I was cool the first time but got nervous the next time.
    I've never pursued anything with someone at work but this guy is so cute! I'm also fairly sure he plays for our team though I've not directly brought that up.
    It's always been my policy to never eat where I play, if you know what I mean. Part of me wants to shut it down and not really even talk to him. The horny part wants to get to know him better.

    What are your experiences with office affairs? Please be detailed! Lol

    First off good luck with what ever you decide.

    I agree that "eating where you play" isnt the greatest of policies. But on the flipside, you cant win the lotto unless you play the odds. icon_biggrin.gif

    So.... I say go for it. Or him!

    Never shit where you eat!!!!! It could become a problem later on....That being said, I asked a guy out at my old job. Its for the best that we didnt go out but I had to ask him out just so I wouldnt regret it.

    I did it backwards. I met my boyfriend elsewhere and leter he got a job where I work (I think he likes me on a short leash) icon_lol.gif

    But a lot of interoffice dating (and I use the term loosely) goes on here. I think it's all the work sponsored happy hours.

    One thing I would take into consideration is how closely I'd have to work with the person if things went sour. If it was someone I would have to see regularly, I would probably not come a courtin'. But if there was a fair amount of distance, I don't see why not.

    I've NEVER dated anyone that I've worked with. Too many times have I seen what were once friendships turn into mortal enemies. It's not worth it.

    Oh man if i could tell you the many office romances ive seen around here, I could go on for hours, gay and straight. And unfortunately most dont work out in the end. For those that did, they are still happy. But if a break up happens or something goes wrong, EVERYONE WILL KNOW ABOUT IT BEFORE LUNCH!

    Therefore I think it is best never to dip your pen in company ink. Trust me, the temptation is there, but is is worth it?

    Please, I wish I had this problem. I work for a woman's clothing designer. One would originally think - there has to be plenty of homos here... nope - all women, and worse... straight men! icon_eek.gif

    EDITED: mispelling. geez! icon_redface.gif

    Do you not go anywhere else where there are cute guys?

    I've had good luck at the gym, yoga class, a gay bar, a grocery store, Home Depot, meeting guys through friends of a friends, my drunk brother in law.

    There are hot guys all over the place......man, I wish I had nothing better to do at my job.

    Ok, thanks guys... Yeah it's seems like it might end up being more trouble than it's worth. If either of us leave though, I'm gonna ask him out.

    probably the best option at this point. i'm echoing everyone's suggestion thus far.

    must be distracting at work icon_lol.gif

    I wouldn't fish off the company pier - unless I was sure that when the affair ended, we could both work together, and at least pass each other in the hall without saying, "Bitch!" or "Bastard!"

    Not a very good idea
    first of all there might be company policy against it
    then coworkers will see an alliance they might resent
    ... and then what if you guys split up?
    and then you'll be forced to see each other and interact like there was nothing between you???

    Ugh...bad move all way round

    I know lots of straight people who have met and married people they've met at work. And even where I'm working at the moment there is an out gay couple who met at work. If it doesn't work out I'm sure you can both be professional about it.

    Life is too short for regrets. Go for it.
