Made My Day!

Today while at work, one of our clients asked me out. heh.  No really, he did! We called him in for a meeting and while my boss walked out of the conference room to take a call, the client started talking to me. Nothing unusual about that except, he was getting a little too personal and before I knew it, he was asking me out!  Now, here's the thing, I don't date clients.  I just, don't.  It's not an ethical question really, I mean there is no legal precedent that I am aware of, but I kind of treat it as if there  is.  So I politely declined.  Then he blindsides me and asks if the reason I won't go out with him is his age.  Um, he's two years older than me.  Upon further probing, I found out that he thought I was twenty-five! Did you get that? TWENTY-FIVE and that I thought he was too old for me!  -Excuse me, while I do cartwheels in sheer delight!  Swoon! I think I just met my future husband!  The Boss-man came back in and all talk of dating and ages were tabled.

At least, until his case is over. :)

OMG YVONNE! Snag him after the case is done pronto! He may just be a keeper! But keep an eye out for the obvious nono signs!

AD -Ha! You're funny! I was totally kidding about having found my "future-husband"! I wonder if he'll feel the same after he finds out how old I really am! We'll see what happens! lol

You were wise not to agree right then and there to a date. If he's a decent kind of guy he will accept your polite decline, avoid pressuring you, and let you decide when and if you're ready. Good luck with this!

What a great compliment! I would do cartwheels too. You do look so young in your photos. I wouldn't know the protocol on dating clients. See what happens next time you are together. Sometimes nothing can stop love from happening.

Amazing! We were quite frankly creating a write-up on the identical topic last night. Then this evening, I came across your current webpage which is way more suitable of information than My spouse and i composed.
