Remember that waiter I briefly dated last fall/winter? Things ended badly, but we talked it out, and made it work since he still works next to where I do and it's just awkward...AGAIN. I though we were on the same page in terms of just being "friends", but he crossed the line last night, or rather tried mightily to.
For one thing, he was drunk as shit, so I won't take it as a compliment when he tells me I look "really cute". He still has feelings for me, and wanted to talk about it. That's fair, but...inviting me back to his place to spend the night, shit, I don't fucking think so. Or him inviting himself over to MY place. UGH.
I suggested a mutual place, namely a 4am bar so we can discuss this situation, but I didn't and don't want to put myself in a situation where more than talking can occur. Not helping matters is that he looked really cute last night. It was tempting, for sure, and I thought back to why and how I gave him chance to begin with.
Sorry if I sound harsh, or worse, arrogant, but I don't think work place relationships are a good idea. I realize the service industry is rife with such situations (booze + late nights = fucking, right?) but that doesn't mean I need to submit to this guy's advances. I'm under enough stress as it is.
