It's about 3 hours past my bedtime and I can't sleep. It's probably all the crap food and caffeine I've had today.
But now I'm at that point it's late, I'm tired and I'm thinking about the big things in the universe (like who really let the dogs out).
I'm also thinking about work and the people I work with.
* Ill preface this by saying I love DP and we are in a happy relationship with a 20 month old. *
So I really really enjoy the company of a male at work. We work in a close environment where everyone is friendly. We often have shared lunch breaks (scheduled that way by our rostering team) and make each other a morning coffee if one is in earlier than the other. We walk to and from the station together (again unplanned but our trains come in at the same time) I probably have a crush on him but it's a harmless school kid type thing nothing either of us would dream of pursuing.
I feel like this is a common thing in a workplace and I think if it was a female I wouldn't even be overthinking this. But then I thought what if the situation was reversed? What if DP was me in this scenario? I have a fiery Mediterranean passion (ie jealous haha) and don't think I would be comfortable with it.
Do you have a relationship like this at work? Would you feel comfortable if your partner was in a similar position?
Is it common and should I stop beating myself up over this! Now that I'm thinking about it I am feeling really guilty!
