WTF is this? This is the first installment of The Bald and the Beautiful. If you have questions related to dating, relationships, sex, drinking, or anything else you wouldn’t ask Dear Abby, send them to me.
I (Bald) will answer them along with The Muse (Beautiful). I was going to answer them by myself, but I figured she’s gonna throw in her two cents anyway, so why not let her do it here rather than via comment, ya know?
I’m really good friends with my co-worker–we hang a lot at work and have lunch. I really want to ask her out, but am not sure. Should I or will it ruin the friendship?
Personally I’ve never been a fan of dipping my pen in the company ink. Even if she’s really hot. I guess my answer would be that I think it’s a bad idea, but if you don’t mind the negativity around the office when things ultimately don’t work out, then by all means go for it.
I’m assuming you want to “ask her out” because she’s hot. I also assume “ask her out” is code for “have sex with”. You have to ask yourself if you would rather be friends with a hot chick for a long time or if you’d rather go through the pain and humiliation you will feel when this office romance turns nasty. Your call bro…
Well, as long as she doesn’t have a boyfriend, and you don’t have a no dating policy in your office, I think you should go with your gut. Do you both have a good time together? Enjoy each others company? How does she react around you? If you think she seems open to the idea, give it a try.
Best of luck to you!
