iv meet a guy at work who i have so much in comman with, we buzz off each other, get on fantastically & do quiet a bit of flirting. i decided it was time to ask him out on a date, however when i did he said that he thought it was a good idea but felt it would be bad as hes applying for a higher up job in our company which would then mean his dad would be his boss & therefore thought it wouldnt be a good idea to date me at this current moment in time. since this has happened we have both contiued like nothing has actually happened at work & the flirting has continued between the 2 of us which is sending me confussing signals should i wait to see if he gets the job & try again then or am i completely wasting my time waiting for him?
If he is still flirting then there is definately a spark between you both, so that's good! There are a lot of relationships that happen at work and it does not affect their working relationship or their performance. It is important that if you do end up as a couple that you maintain the professionalism and it will become more accpeted by those that know about it. He did say that it was not right at this moment in time, which means that he may still be interested. If you both have a connection it is not worth just brushing it under the carpet, if there is a chance that you might work out.
It may be wise to let him have this time to concentrate on his promotion and then see what happens after that, as i am sure that you dont want your flirtations to get in the way of this career. You could find a better oppotunity to talk about things and ascertain what he actually wants so if he does not want anything after his promotion then you can begin to move on and find someone else.
