How to deal with no-go work infatuation
posted by anonymous to human relations (28 answers total) 5 users marked this as a favorite
Hi. So, I tend to develop romantic infatuations, often with the wrong people. How do I deal with this? Work on my own shit, don't date, live a celibate life oh these three or so years. Therapy once a week. It's cool.
UNTIL I end up working with somebody with whom there is a huge sexual tension. Meaning that I'd cut off a finger to jump his bones, and there's a lot of flirty stuff coming from him too -- when he's not being mean. The meanness is real meanness, like RED FUCKING FLAG mean, and yet I still want him. Christ on a sidecar.
Any advice, guys? I need to get outside the bell jar of my infatuation, and I'm having a hard time. The flirting on his end is heating up, and damn if I don't feel like a complete jerk because I want somebody because they are a) Funny and b) Mean.
