Hey guys, I have a problem here. I hope some of the respected contributors will comment here,
I have a really cute coworker who flirts with me all the time. And the fact of the matter is, I have been too cautious to ask her out. Simply because in my last job I nearly got fired because my boss wanted me and when I didn't return her advances, she complained and nearly had me fired.
I come to this job and now my admin assistant flirts with me. My fellow coworkers bug me and say I should ask her out. But the problem is, I already have, twice. Both times, she just said she was busy. My friends say that I didn't ask her out right and they think that I haven't shown her enough interest.
Now the Christmas party is in a week and I wasn't planning on going. And when my admin assistant asked if I was going, (she is in charge of reservations) I said no. All she said was "lame"
I feel so torn, because I don't want to put my career on the line for some relationship, that may or may not work out. The feelings were so strong at one point, but now they have seemed to fade a bit.
What do you guys think? Should I go out with her? She is super involved in my business that she processes all my payroll stuff and helps me get paid. My heart says "yea she is cute" but my head says "Don't"
