I have a co-worker in another department. Everyone can see that we like each other but without me asking if he'd go out with me or anything like that he just straight out told me I dont date people I work with. He keeps flirting with me and I've become somewhat distant since he made it clear he wouldn't date me because we work together, but he told a mutual friend of ours " (my name) is cool huh?" to which our mutual friend said " yeah she is" then he said " I told her I dont date anyone I work with, she's really trying to break me but she isn't." Im a little confused because im not trying to break him in anyway and I haven't done anything to make him think im trying to "break up" other than casually talking and saying hi. Anyone know what he means, and do you get where he's coming from by saying that he won't date anyone he works with?
