Crap. So I am stuck with this chick for at least a year on a project. I basically spend like 40+ hours a week with her. She is really hot, smart, interesting, and super sexual. But I'm a strong believer in "don't shit where you eat" philosophy. Long story short: work party, lots of alcohol, wake up naked in bed together. I really don't know how to handle it properly. I actually like her a lot but don't necessarily think it's a good idea to continue. Questions: 1) Are you both single? 2) Do you report to her? 3) Does she report to you? If you answer no to one and yes to either two or three. I would stop in your tracks, have that conversation, you like her a lot but you want to keep things on a professional level. If you answered Yes to one and no to two AND three. I would have that critical think, is this co-worker potential relationship material? Reality is with longer working hours there is a greater chance you will meet your next girlfriend or wife on the job, like it or not.
