How do I let a coworker know I'm unequivocally interested in him?

With the caveat that I know 'shitting where I eat' is a bad idea, I'd like to let a coworker know I'm interested in him. Asking him out isn't an option too, because I'm pretty shy and would probably blush and flub anything that's supposed to be casual. How do I do this? We have zero interaction. [more inside]

Would I Be an Office Tattletale?

I have a newish job at a law firm. I like it. It's not in my field and I'm a bit overqualified, but I need the money and a sense of accomplishment. I work very hard, am trying to learn quickly, and have had excellent, enthusiastic feedback from my boss. However, a coworker who has some problems with my work style and constantly tells me I'm a sloppy worker wants to have a sit-down meeting with me at Starbucks tomorrow to discuss my work. This person is not my boss, and my actual boss has made it clear to me that this person is in no way my boss. Do I tell my real boss what this guy is doing? [more inside]

Are we the next Jim and Pam?

I've read all the previous threads about coworker relationships. It's a polarizing issue, and I've generally fallen on the side of opposition of them. Of course, the universe being as it is, I've found myself in a situation where I've fallen pretty badly for a coworker who reciprocates my feelings. We cannot decide if this is worth pursuing. Can you help us? [more inside]

He seems permanently stuck on the fence - what should I do?

7 months ago, I started a new job and immediately struck up a friendship with a co-worker of mine who had a girlfriend. I'll call him Derek. From day one, Derek and I realized we had an eerie amount in common. Our conversations were always electric and we never failed to make each other just cackle with laughter. Us having a fantastic time together at work was as far as it ever went, but that was enough. Looking back on it, I have to say that I was oblivious to how important he would become to me. I acknowledged that I was infatuated with him, but as that sometimes happens when you work with attractive people, I expected it to fizzle out in time and then we could get back to being friends. That didn't happen. [more inside]
