I've got a new boss. I've caught him looking at me and felt Butterflies from his looks. What does this mean? This has happened twice. Is he interested in me? He has also come over and touched me on the shoulder. Now when I look at him he looks away. What does this mean?
Now this weird dance is going on. He looks at me, I look away. I look at him, he looks away! I have to work with this guy on a daily basis. Today he waved at me when he was walking by. I was in a meeting with six other people. I did not wave back.
Do I need to get another job? Or can I try and ignore him and never look at him?
what happens when things go south? ewwwwww, your job could be in jeopardy. Don't do it!
He is looking away? you know why? Its called "I am afraid of a sexual harassment suit" I may sound like I am being sarcastic or funny, but it is the truth. He is looking away because he is smart and knows better.
Do not, I repeat, Do not date people in the workplace. Especially if they are your boss. Your job is for business only and leave it that way, or you will be truly sorry.
It is unfortunate that two people that clearly have interest in each other cannot make a move, but be wise, you have to know it isn't going to turn out well.
I should also say that you should be a little wary. I had a boss who decided he was in love with me once and it wasn't fun. Everything I was assigned to do was suddenly based upon how close it would be to him. He invented all sorts of reasons for me to be doing things in his offfce and I could see how much he was enjoying it more than once. It was really creepy. And somehow he managed to ride the line between ambiguity and things I would definitely complain about for well over a year.
For a long time I thought it was my fault, that I was teasing him. I was so dumb. I used to go into my bosses office and fulfill all of his tasks that often included bending over in front of his desk to pick something up and see himn sitting there and looking at me and somehow I convinced myself that it was my fault. Even the time I saw that he was hard I convinced myself that it was my fault. That I had somehow teased him and forced him to be in a state like that where anyone in the room could see it so obviously. I was only 19 at the time and he was well into his thirties, and still I thought it was my fault. Ugh, how awful.
