What do you think about dating your coworker? I just met this guy at my part time job that i do not intend to stay at for long and i believe it is the same for him. I only work with him once a week. I am attracted to him and am interested in seeing him outside of work but i'm not sure how to go about it.
There's lots of talk about not dating people from work. I think it's silly.
Look...people should take opportunities wherever they appear. I don't think many of us are so attractive that we can afford to squander opportunities. This is especially true once we're finished with school and work becomes the primarily place to meet new people.
And let's be honest here. If we like someone, we're gonna like them. We're not gonna convince ourselves out of it. It reminds me of girls who keep telling themselves "I won't be attracted to boys because schoolwork comes first". It's funny and tragic seeing a girl fight internally with herself. When logic and emotions come into conflict, you can bet that emotions will win.
When dating a coworker, there's risk of being around someone too much. But if you're there only once a week and you plan to quit anyways, overexposure becomes a moot point. Even if you plan to stay long-term and see him constantly, I think it's silly to overthink and overanalyze as if our lives will last forever.
