Single Consultants

So my date had to cancel our plans because her boss is taking her team out to dinner tonight. When I texted her I said “it’s cool, I’m sure dinner with your boss will be fun.” I feel like I came cont.

Well I was at a dinner just now and saw the boss and a girl taking the party to his hotel room 😉 Not sure if that girl was your date...

Her boss is a woman so that’d be pretty spicy 🌶

I love that you’re overthinking this. I’m always the one to overthink (I’m F). Shows you care - good luck!

An exclamation point can really take the sting off ambiguous texts !

I opened it up with a “hey!” Since that’s how she started her text off. Not sure if that helped 😅

Even if she saw it that way and decided to confront you about it, you can always explain that it wasn’t meant poorly later on. But yeah, agree with what the others said - there’s nothing wrong with your text.

C3. I know you’re trying to be funny but that’s a frustrating comment and I say this because that thinking-even when joking- helps to hold women back at work. 1.Men and women who work together go out to dinner. 2. She’s a woman nor a girl. 3. How do you know he was the boss?

Yeah, so he knows cause she told him, but also her boss is a woman. I love how people take literally every chance to rant

Off as a jerk when I didn’t mean it like that. Almost wanna tell her sorry about the text or am I overthinking it?

@D1, Calm down and loosen up a little. Ain’t no one holding no woman back here. I work with both of them as I am part of the same team. We (Men & Women) all went to dinner together (nothing wrong). The manager is staying on the same floor as me in the hotel and the girl in case is local i.e. not staying in the hotel. I saw both of them up on our floor heading into his room (again nothing wrong with that as they are both consenting adults). I am not judging anyone here. Just saying what I saw. It’s simple as that.
