Dating my boss
It's tried and tested and we all know it to be true, but boy does it make relationships that much harder and leave many of us in a pool of unrequited love or pounding against the wall in frustration and jealousy.
Another example is having a crush on your boss and this is again something we can't have or at least shouldn't have.
I have worked at our company for almost a year, and he has been there around 6 years.
In other news, if you have ever been a bridesmaid, or know one, or wish you were one, or like dresses, or like me, or like music, or like Adam 12, or are just bored, you can still register for Running With the Bridesmaids, which takes place Sept. I will be there to sign my book, mingle, give out some prizes, etc. The only problem with my love life is that my boyfriend is also my boss.
I understand that you don't want to leave a good professional opportunity, but ... What was your boyfriend's plan when this relationship started?
Dating, relationships, partners and everything else that comes with them, are never simple and are the source of a large proportion of all of our troubles and woes.
In other words it's far from easy to date your boss but then again that's probably the very reason it's something we all want so much.
Of course there's also the chance that you are just in love with your boss and they are just a great partner for you, and the fact that they are in a position of power over you can also be somewhat alluring.
At the same time it is frowned upon by most people, and also a tad... All that means that a relationship with your boss could very well mean sneaking around the place and keeping things a secret and that's an incredibly stressful and difficult thing to do.
To avoid these situations then you should transfer to another branch or another department whenever possible so that you are no longer dealing with your boss directly. Make sure though that you discuss this with your partner so it doesn't come across as hurtful that you're moving away from them.
This also prevents you from having the problem of spending too much time with your partner which can leave you with nothing to talk about potentially.
Of course it's a difficult topic to bring up without giving the game away.
Be Subtle: If there is no reason for you not to date your boss from the company's perspective then this doesn't give you a license to be completely un-subtle.
Check the Policy: You might find that there is no policy in your workplace against dating colleagues or your boss, and if this is the case then you can go ahead and be okay with it.
