Dating girls at work
As someone who spent all of her early twenties dating fellow journalists, I would never advise a young woman to follow my example.I didn’t suffer any professional disasters, but I did have to deal with a lot of personal anxieties I might not have experienced otherwise…I don’t think it’s a total coincidence that I’ve been most professionally successful in the years since I instituted my ‘no journo’ dating rule.Don't ask all these boring questions that neither of you really care about.
They aren't straight up with the girl and it kinda seems like they expect the girl to just suddenly come out and confess their love for them.
Despite it being more convenient for 20-something women who are trying to make “serious strides in [their careers] before [they have] to make tough decisions about marriage and kids” to find potential suitors in the office, Friedman thinks that having a “co-worker-boyfriend hybrid” remains a bad idea.
For her, it has to do with fostering career confidence: “There’s such a thing as having your ambitions too in sync with those of your partner.
If you're going in with the idea that if she has a boyfriend then its a waste of time then you're looking at it the wrong way.
Even if she has a boyfriend it doesn't mean she won't have sex with you or leave him for you.
At times they would text the girl while I'm in bed with her and she would show me their messages and we would have a little laugh about it.
