How do you handle attraction in the work place. During my summer internship I was really attracted to this girl I shared a office with. She was way out of my league so I didn't even attempt to ask her out or anything. Plus you don't hookup where you vlookup. During one of the days she wore a really short skirt and I got a bit aroused. Since my housing was really close, during lunch I went home and fixed the issue. How do you handle being aroused at work?

Question for you guys. In a bit of a career path conundrum. Would you rather work alone as an FA at Edward Jones or join a team with Ameriprise? For some context I’m 27 years old with about 60M AUM at EDJ. I’ve been offered to join a team with 500M (2 of the 3 partners are retiring and transitioning out within the next 3-5 years). For the long term I’m thinking Ameriprise would be the better option but I could always just stay at EDJ where I’m comfortable and continue growing my book. Thoughts ?
