In my opinion, only worth it if you're absolutely sure there's something real there. Not worth shitting where you eat if you only foresee a fling, there are plenty of fish in the sea for that. If you think there's something real there (that's more than something you've built up in your mind to be great because of excitement of the taboo and just the idea of the person) go for it. Coming from someone who has had a fling with a coworker that totally wasn't worth it and dated a manager and was totally worth going for it

The fact you have to ask on FB if it's something real, before actually having done anything to confirm it yourself means you should probably not do it.

Thanks!! What's the best way to determine if this is indeed something real? Obviously we both have to keep it professional so it's hard to tell with absolute certainty if he's being nice or if there is something more including attraction?

Dinner with drinks, then offer to kick the party on at a rooftop bar. See where things go from there.

Basics: is he married? In general, do you share interests and background? Otherwise, it probably won't work out and you should probably avoid it.

Woot woot! Go for it OP! Then quit the firm and start a non profit or relax at home

K2, I think that the blasé attitude is exactly what I want to avoid 😂
