Like Friedman, I never suffered any personal disasters because of it, just a few moments of personal anxiety that I recovered from.
But what is dating if not a series of personal anxieties?
Im expected to manage the store(despite how they literate Im not management and dont have the power to discipline) when the assistant manager or manager of the store is not around. Back on point, theres this girl who likes me, I like her back. Yeah, this is like the one time when it can actually be worth the risk, since you're guaranteed to not be working there in the not-too-distant future.
We have gone on a few dates, but Im hesitant on going any further since dating coworkers have a bad rep to it. I'd feel like kicking my own ass if shes the one I let go for being scared to go for it. Thats honestly the only reason Im hesitant on going any further. Go for it, and as for policy, if you're not management on paper, they can't cite policies from paper at you as if you are.
Trying to be discreet about dating a co-worker can help a lot in making it last.
