I’ve got a thing for you, which I’m sure you already know. Would love to date you, although I can think of several reasons why asking you out would be a bad idea:
- You’re my boss. We have a great working relationship, and the last thing I want to do is jeopardize that. Why mess up a good thing, right?
- You look 10 years younger than your real age, so I could totally understand it if you’re into dating younger guys (speaking of which, didn’t I see you in a cameo role on the Courtney Cox TV show “Cougartown”?) 😉
- I’m a middle-aged balding guy with a spare tire, no car, and living from paycheck to paycheck. Plus I’m an actor, and actors have a reputation for being notoriously unreliable. Not exactly ideal dating material.
- You’re very circumspect when it comes to your personal life, so you could already have a boyfriend and just not be talking about it. In your case, still waters run VERY deep (which is one of the things that intrigues me about you).
Having said all that, I’m still crazy about you. Love how your gray eyes sparkle when you smile. Respect the fact that you’re such a great mom. Admire the way you’ve taken the management ball and ran with it. Think it’s cool the way you’ve reinvented yourself. Amused by the way the guys in the office buzz around your cubicle like bees around honey (oh yes, I’ve noticed). Knocked out by your fashion sense and your natural beauty that allows you to look gorgeous without makeup. In short, I like your style.
Here’s the thing…I don’t want to live a life of regret. So if you’re not attracted to me, naturally I’ll be disappointed, but I’ll accept it and move on. But if you ARE attracted to me, would really like to get to know you better outside of work and see where it goes. Perfectly willing to be discreet so that no one at work knows and there’s no charges of employee favoritism etc. Not looking for a casual fling, but hopefully a longterm relationship if it clicks. You rock!
