Last night I had dinner with my boss. They are one of many bosses I have, what sets them apart they are the biggest. They had more enthusiasm about us having dinner then other bosses have had. They always had a spark in their voice when we spoke over the phone. But that is the type of person they are. Happy go lucky.
At dinner they said is “everything always business talk” can I learn who you are personally?. All they knew is the day I got hired was the same day I had a bad breakup in my life. They only knew this because the founder of the company is a very close friend and he is also close friends with my boss as well. They have apparently spoken of my date history and what I am looking for.
Well as you could probably read between the lines my boss admitted they liked me and liked me every since the day we met. They haven’t stop thinking of me, type of like. Going on asking if we can have a future. Every “but what if”, “but you are my boss”, “but we have common friends what if things go wrong?”. “How about if I haven’t considered having feelings since I was thinking only business” and now they want me to explore them and give you an answer. This has thrown me off I say no, could jeopardize happy work environment I am in right now if I say yes could jeopardize work environment if things go wrong in the future.
I am a bit in awh, by a person of that caliber attracted to me but also had a lot get thrown on the table.
