    Yes, the economy is too tough right now

    Yes, but I'd never tell my partner

    Yes, and I would tell my partner

    No, never

    @ycare:  I am also sorry, but there are a lot of posts (and categories!) that have nothing to do with weddings…Career, TTC, Parenting, Cooking, The Lounge, Home, Fitness, Intimacy.

    This place would be bomb ass boring if it were ALL about flower arrangements, rings, and dresses. Those things suck you in, posts like MsPanda’s keep you coming back for more 😛

    @ycare:  You might want to 1) avoid non-wedding posts (the subject title couldn’t have misled you after all…) or 2) avoid this site altogether, because there are a lot of Not Wedding Related discussions, and a lot of downer posts as well, and it just wouldn’t be the same without them. 

    Click at your own discretion 🙂

    No, never. I don’t care if I was single. Once you show that you’ll do that, you’re gonna have to keep doing it.

    Okaaaaay? Wow…I’m not sure how my responses are being interpreted but there isn’t anything defensive in them. IDK who would get defensive over a website that isn’t theirs or a discussion that I they start? Man, I’m even adding smily faces! lol 

    I was just letting PP know that Not Wedding Related discussions are sort of a part of the community here and part of what makes this place awesome, but if you don’t appreciate them it’s easy enough to not click on them and to move on. YEEEEESH! Pardon me. 

    FTR, this thread is super cool and totally belongs here IMO, sweet hearts! 🙂

    @MrsPanda99:  OMG I almost just threw up. Definitely not my current boss for my current job – neither are that appealing.

    Is he hot????? If I was single, attracted to him anyway, and this is a freaking awesome job (mega cash and opportunity) I damn sure would at least consider it.

    I am over 50, and times were a lot different when I was probably the same age as the woman in Question

    Like that old joke…

    I remember when harass was 2 words and spelled her ass.

    Sexual Harassment existed, but it was just part of the world if you were a working woman.

    There were all sorts of sleazy men you had to find a way to avoid with many different tactics (and my early working life in the 1970s was a lot better than the women the generation before me in the 1950s and 60s… ala Mad Men)

    That isn’t to say that there wasn’t hanky panky going on in the office.

    Married Men & Single Women – Bosses & Subordinates – Singles hooking up etc.

    It happened.

    It was only gross if one was being propositioned by someone in Authority, and you didn’t WANT to sleep with them

    Unlike now, there were no clear lines

    I myself had a crush on a Boss once when I was in my late teens, he would have been in his mid to late 30s, and divorced.

    We hung out together, and we ended up in the sack (once)

    Only once cause I think he figured out it wasn’t a wise thing to be doing for his job.  Looking back now, I think he was worried we’d get caught… I know we were definitely seen out together on one occasion on a weekend date by a coworker… miles and miles from our hometown… so clearly not having “just accidently run into one another”

    Besides my Daddy was a big wheel at the company (not his direct Boss… but UP there).  My father never talked to me about my sexuality, but he most definitely wasn’t above pulling a guy aside to have a chat (lol, call it intimidation !!)

    Thinking that may very well have happened.  Not soon after, I got a promotion… and got moved to another Department.  The guy kept his regular job… no harm, no foul, I suppose in that everything turned out fine career wise for both of us.

    Today, he’d no doubt be in deep sh!t… maybe even fired !!

    As of right now, I would never sleep with my boss b.c. I’m a waitress. And I could find another job within a week.  (I’ve waitressed for 4years) and I’m damn good at my job. Maybe but probably not once I got into my career. . But I have 4 mouths to feed and if it was the only job yes, I’d probably do it…. maybe, but if I lost my job I know my fi would do everything in his power to make it work without me having to do that. so idk. But desperate needs calls for desperate measures.

    @Bebealways:  hhmm, how about the aftermath, though? How would you feel knowing you are only working because you slept with your boss? Does it not matter to you to win a job based on merit? To me that’s extremely important. I would feel like a sell-out. i would also be too embarrassed to tell any one the reason I kept my job.

    There isn’t enough soap and water in the world for me to even consider it.
