Dating my supervisor
I learned a lot of important lessons from being with him.
I have worked at our company for almost a year, and he has been there around 6 years.
Not so romantic, I know, and I felt super guilty since he still had a girlfriend–but it seemed exciting at the time. Rumors spread through the restaurant so fast my head was spinning, and soon we both spent more time denying our relationship than actually talking to each other.
Our once-fun hang out sessions turned into long arguments with me trying to convince him he wasn’t going to lose his job.
We kissed in the office, and from there, things only got worse.
K and I started sneaking around on a regular basis. The storage closet and the office in the restaurant, his car or my car in a random parking lot, and sometimes even the walk-in refrigerator.
It was a disaster, and it got even worse when the other managers heard the rumors.
K had a girlfriend, he was 10 years older than me, and, oh yeah… None of these facts kept him from flirting with me, and I started to flirt back a little, too.
It's very strange going to work with him every day and pretending like we barely know each other when we sleep in the same bed every night.
So I guess my question is this: Should I maybe be looking for another job?
Coworkers might also get jealous and try to sabotage you on the job (lame, but it happens).
Plus, if there's a company policy against it or someone can prove that you've gotten perks as the result of being the boss's girl, you're jeopardizing both of your careers.
