Flirting at work... Just good fun or a recipe for emotional disaster for all involved? I'm undecided.
I think I can smell potential disaster...
Otherwise you're playing with fire. Someone will likely wind up very disappointed and a bit fucked off, maybe even a bit bitter and that's the end of that game.
Alternately, you may wind up setting sail on the ocean of love with your co-worker. Which incidentally, is wrong on loads of levels and a bit sickening for everyone else in the workplace.
So, only flirt with co-workers on nights out, where drunken flirting will lead to drunken sex, which can therefore be ignored completely as a SHOOGE mistake never to happen again. Until she gets horny on her period and won't stop pestering you for sex.
Second paragraph kind of made sense. Beginning of third paragraph drifted. End of third paragraph was not what I wanted to hear.
If it's someone who fancies you and they initiate the flirting, it'll be a disaster (in a good way: for them).
one in four people end up dating a co worker*, which probably means flirting probably happens quite a bit too.
Since most offices aren't currently in meltdown I'd imagine the repercussions can't of flirting can't be that bad.
*May not be statistically accurate
Just don't, its not worth the fallout
the next minute your dick's fallen out
After the flirting comes the sneaky looks & smiles, emails, lunchtime meets/drinks, afterwork drinks, keeping secrets from workmates then you bring it out that you're actually seeing each other,then sex, you combine your work/social life, then you breakup. Its not worth it.
and now continues to email me and torture me. Actually, he has stopped as ive started blanking him.
Tbf, thats harrassment isnt it?
but yeah, a bit of flirting never hurt anyone, i had a lovely flirty akward conversation about ham recently in here with a really lovely looking guy. At my age you'd think id of stopped taking beamers (red faces)
A fair amount of this was gibberish to me. 'Offered me on'? How strong of a come on is this?
'Stopped taking beamers'? Did you get a red face? Or did he?
Also, I have yet to discover how to flirt in a ham-based conversation. Tips please.
get. their. attention.
i think we both felt awkward and kinda like eachother. but it was me who took the red face.
offering someone on is asking for our right sex
no wonder he's coming on
Go for it, I've found work to be a great source of poon. Oi! Oi!
it's COLLEAGUES. Fuckin americanisms.
are the students on 3 month placements, young, fit, healthy, often foreign here and ready to go
so flirts with EVERYONE. Its pathetic to watch. She has a very annoying laugh and isn't even fit.
is a photocopier?
This thread is going to be a great etiquette reference for if/when I ever get a real proper grown up job.
No two ways about it, weathered handbags all round. So I wouldn't really know about flirting in the workplace apart from when I worked in a supermarket when I was sixteen and managed to have two quite hot, yet chavvy girls after me. Fuck knows how I managed that. I miss that job
