Ok so I know its stupid and I've seen posts like this but backwards... I mostly just need to vent and get the thoughts from people who don't know me and my coworker. So here's my story...
I've been working with this guy for a year and a half. He's 10 years older than me and he's been dating this girl for 8 years (on and off). We get along pretty well and vent to each other about work and life. Everything was always friendly although I was attracted to him I never thought much of it. One day another coworker told me to be careful because she thought I was flirting too much and that there was an obvious attraction on both sides. I told my male coworker about the gossip going around about us and he laughed and said "right like I'm such a catch" We left it at that. A few weeks later a bunch of us from work went out and had a little too much to drink. My coworker's girlfriend was out of town and he was worried about getting a dui so I told him I'd pick him up. By the time we left we were holding hands and a little touchier than usual. I mean nothing really happened... but it wasn't exactly normal.
I know he talks about breaking up with his girlfriend but he's talked about that forever. And I know that she wants to move and he doesn't. We've never really talked about that night. But I'm sure that he's just unhappy with where he is right now... but I really do like him. How stupid am I?
