Crushing on a fairly important person at work 😓🔥😓
I’m trying to hide my nsfw inclinations, but end up coming off standoffish. I’m an awkward mess y’all.

Is that why all the cute girls seem standoffish around me? Makes sense.

VP2, OP’s use of the phrase “fall into his arms” is an example of humorous hyperbole. Hyperbole is defined as exaggerated claims not meant to be taken seriously, and in this context is a device used to communicate self-depreciation and OP’s awareness of the ridiculousness of their situation. So get fucked.

VP1 is all the VP we need around here.

Maybe have a friend ask him/her if he/she likes you. And the send him a note like this:

@ACD1 I say hello and stuff.. I just kind of walk away real fast so I don’t fall into his arms

Been there. Still there. I’m just learning to own my awkwardness for what it is. Crushes wane, eventually. Until then, try to approach being professional and cordial to them as part of your job description. Make that your top priority in your mind when interacting with them, and see what happens. It helped me manage all the feels.

VP1, I'm standoffish around a colleague (to the point where he, hilariously, felt the need to ask me if I was "okay"). Dude, I just think you are a dick. The very idea that he could ever think it's because I have a crush? My skin crawls.

I’ve had many really attractive clients. Felt the same. Did my best to be normal but I end up overanalyzing everything I say/do. Pretty sure I just end up as Monica from Friends “I’m breezy” It helps if you repeat “it will never, ever happen”. Then it makes them a normal, unattractive person.

I feel like gay men especially are constantly discriminated against in the workplace. I have been turned down for a promotion, yet again, in favor of a married heterosexual with kids. This has been the story of my career. Have superior experience - stellar reviews - people fighting to get on to my team because our team is great and I treat everyone well. This is so frustrating. Again and again, it’s a culture of parents helping other parents. No gays in upper level mgmt in our office.

Bought a house in 2018 for 75k and put in 25k. It appraised for 167k, but with the market it’s just sitting (99days, one offer that backed out bc they lost funding). We dropped the price to 159k a month ago and still nothing… my boyfriend wants me to drop it down to 139k, arguing that it’s still a profit that we can invest in the market now. My realitor suggested renting it out, but I don’t have the business experience and wouldn’t know where to start. What would you do?
