    I do consulting, and at one of out clients there is a girl that I think is into me, she is giving off all of the signs at least. I have been very hesitant to do anything about it, obviously because she is an employee at one of our larger clients.

    The trouble is, i do kind of like her, and I think we'd get along, but I don't want to jeopardize my job. We don't have anything like a no-dating policy, but I am still pretty hesitant.

    Any advice from the Vag on this?

    Well seeing as how every week there is a thread, on this tiopic I'll just tell you now that almost everyone will tell you this is a bad idea, because it usually is.

    But at the end of the day we are not you. We don't know how this could effect your career if it goes bad. So either forget her or ask her out :dunno:

    You're a consultant. Do whatever you do outside of work and always keep the 2 separate and you should be fine....unless you just wanna do a drive-by-fuckin' then you might have probs.

    I find it best to avoid looking for chicks at work. I'm sure A LOT of people do it. Also, it tends to feel like I'm on a date everyday if I see this person at work and it can be awkward.

    Do you tend to find women attractive at work, but they probably wouldn't warrant a second glance in public? There's a term for this called "work hot", you might keep this in mind.

    If you are just looking for a warm hole, this sounds like an easy lay.

    Take it from my experience....don't do it. It's awkward if it goes bad (like mine) and just changes the whole atmosphere.

    Party with work girls just don't date them. :hs:

    its not a bad idea at all, unless you work really close to her. if you just see her a few times a day at work, not a big deal. if you see her all day every day its different

    if its a shitty job, then you can always quit if it gets awkward.


    i encourage dating in the workplace


    but remember, sex in the workplace != dating in the workplace.

    My gf works at the same company as me, but we're on different floors in different departments.

    And this is her last week at this company, anyway.

    the former is less complicated.

    some times its just carnal passion that consumes us; not our desire for companionship
