Crushing on your co-worker
We need to work, most all of us that are part of modern society needs that daily grind to get by, and financial stability is mostly the goal for individuals to do that labor in the metaphorical salt mines. The need to have a place and purpose can prove of equal importance to most of us, yet does work have to be drudgingly depressing, little to no excitement or just downright boring?
Working in the modern world entails that we more or less need to be interacting with different individuals, working with a group of people, or doing a job under a supervisors watch, and some do work completely alone, like independent writers, data analysts, recluse painters and artists etc. But in this case let us focus on what helps you to get excited for work and going to the office every day, and what makes you dress up better and boosts your confidence in the same time.
Having a crush is healthy. Seeing that person in the cafeteria, or going up the elevator, or just passing you by down the hallway is exciting enough. You have a crush. And that’s one good thing to check, if asked for a pros and cons list on to why you like your job.
What makes things tolerable when work becomes too toxic? Your crush could act like a morale booster for when your boss gives you a hard time, or a client unreasonably argues with you, to just even the copy machine giving you hassles. Seeing your crush could give your spirits the emotional energy it needs to help you outlast and overcome trials and turbulence you might be encountering with work. When you see a crush in the workplace one can’t help but try for the most part to look better, and thus this self-imposed image of strength could definitely trickle over to reality.
You feel at home and less to no stress. Although you get tired after a long day at work, which is obviously normal on all accounts. The point being is that you are pretty much in a balanced situation, and despite the fact that you get worn out and exhausted doesn’t get you feeling spent and depressed, and at the end of the day you definitely feel better, especially if you are in talking situation with your crush.
Your crush asks you for help. This is something that would spit out butterflies in your tummy. If your crush has a habit of getting into some minor trouble around the office, be it the copy machine malfunctioning, the printer jams paper, or even just the coffee maker producing bad coffee. Your crush’s needs would be a sort of mission that you need to achieve, thus making you more focused and clear headed when helping his or her needs. Just don’t forget to do the same for your own needs.
You dress better. You know what they say, look good feel good? That definitely is on point when you go to work every day. You try to look your best just in case you get to see your crush. And this can trickle down on how other coworkers in the office sees you. Your boss would probably notice you more than before, and a morale boost of confidence would certainly fill you making you do better work. That classic line “dress to impress” is surely bearing some truth.
You’re usually on time. Before ever meeting your crush, you were once a tardy person, you have the unfavorable reputation of coming to work late, you usually don’t meet your deadlines, and you even missed your office Christmas party. Things are much different now upon crushing on an office mate, as you have the excitement and lifted spirit to get to the office as early as can be, you never miss work occasions, thus giving you enthusiasm and eagerness to do all these things on time, just for the chance to be in the vicinity of your crush.
Having a crush is definitely something to look forward to in the daily drudgery of work. But do not forget that it’s only a crush, and acting upon it could have an outcome that might not match your expectation. So tread carefully, do not be a creep, be friendly and never overstep your boundaries, and surely your crush will return the favor in a friendly manner. Who knows, maybe that day will come that an opportunity opens for a future romance with your co working office crush.
