    Silly, Unrequited Crush

    I have feelings for someone at my place of work. This is the first job I've ever had, in retail. Ironically, I started working there almost 5 months ago (about 2 months after my break-up), and though the crush did not develop right away, it did not take very long. We didn't work...

    I haven't admitted this to anyone.

    But there is this woman at work. She is so beautiful and friendly. Everytime I see her I think about how much I'd love to be with her. The problem is that we are both attached. Sometimes I just want to tell her, just so she knows.

    I Would Hit It

    We've worked together for over a year now.  He was the first person I met and he showed me a bunch of procedures on my first day in the store (retail management), so we were in each other's personal space while I learned the ropes.  I could tell he was into me just as...

    Story of my life. We

    both started working the same day and right from day one we hit it off. We share all interests and all we do is laugh when we are together. Whether at work or outside of work. Obviously getting involved with a coworker is never smart. So should I just let it go or make her aware...

    Many Many Times, But.....

    A wise friend told me you don't "eat and crap in the same room".  I am sure it just complicates things and life is complicated enough.

    He's Hot And I Want Him

    I work a corporate job. Around me are corporate dudes and dudettes. Across from my desk, is the office of one of the corporate lawyers. I daydream about him all the time. Once I even walked past his office and adjusted my skirt. He speaks of how he lives in a sexless...

    She's 25, I'm 45 And Married, But Can't Stop These Feelings

    It Makes Me Feel Great

    My coworker is married and quite a bit older than me. But he's kind and thoughtful, and good looking. Being around him usually makes me feel good about myself. I think it can be a good thing having a crush on a coworker - for starters, it has made me put even more effort into my...

    I Heard a Voice

    It was 1992.  I went to a party and it wasn't in the best of neighborhoods.  But I knew most of the people who where there.  It was time to leave and a lot of people were standing outside.  All of a sudden, gunshots were going off.  I was frozen.  It...

    Worst Feeling Ever.

    When she comes through the shop I can't concentrate at all. I have to stare at what I'm working on and put everything else out of my mind or else I'll turn around and look at her and then I'd be done for. Not only do I wish i could be with her, I wish i could be her. She's so...

    Well she's drop dead gorgeous!! On top of that she's intelligent! So brains and beauty, she was my trainer when we first met. We butted heads for a while but eventually got along. Every time I work with her my heart literally jumps out. She talks to me and I kind of panic, but...

    She's Like A Sister To Me

    I started a new job six months ago. It's a simple gig, but it's done wonders for me. I was in a bad place before and just feeling like I was getting back on my feet, being a human and getting on with my life, was like being born again. I was happy. I liked going to work and being...

    Is It Wrong To Have A Crush On Someone At Work When You Are Married???

    I can't handle this. At least it feels like I can't handle this feeling....It's happy, painful and achy all at the same time... I just don't feel like myself these days. We work in the same unit, but not on the same team. I see her all the time, but wish I worked with her...

    I noticed him a few weeks ago,

    always glancing in my direction. He was a few cubicles away from mine. When my boss is speaking to me he'll glance. When we cross paths in the hallway he stares at me, when he is standing talking to one of his team members, he will look at my direction, those sort of things that...

    This has been kind of a back and forth thing at work the last little while. There is a girl that got hired a month or so at my work named Kelly. Even from the first day I always thought that she was very hot. At first I didn't really dwell on it since she kind of ignored me and...

    So of course I'm around testosterone and endorphins all day. I specifically get turned on by my Chris. Chris has the perfect physique. He's very built and his muscle just barely ripple. He had the most detailed, beautiful tattoo work on his arms. And that's a plus on it's own...

    Would Never Happen.

    He's great but would never act on it. And honestly he reciprocates the feelings, which just makes it all the more awkward. So ill just keep it as a nice little day dream.

    I'm pretty sure she likes me back to.

    I'm hesitant to act. I study business and know why it is frowned upon. I also know it was told it was bad to get in a relationship with someone from my church, but I did anyways and it ended very badly. I'm told not to get in a relationship because much like my church, it would...
