I have a crush on a guy at work. The concept of this goes against my strict "You don't get your meat where you get your bread policy." But I have a lot of rules and maybe it's time to loosen up on some of them-and I know a few people who have successfully dated (and eventually married) co-workers. The problem is, I have the dating social skills of a 12 year old girl. In that if I think you are cute and want to make out with you, I am completely unable to talk to you. And if I can talk to you...UGH, cringe worthy conversation. So because of my complete lack of social skills, I asked a friend to find out details about him (Seriously, how have I ever managed to date anyone with these awesome skills?)...sexual preference, relationship status, age, etc. He straight, single, and 26. 26?! Welcome to Cougartown! That means when I was driving he was in first grade. When I was able to legally buy beer, he was 12. Age gap and a co-worker...ugh. I must really like his beard to continue with this crush. Maybe this week, I will pass him a note that says "Do you like me? Check yes or no."
