Your boss is very friendly towards you and very supportive at work. You are grateful because you love your job. But your boss has asked you a number of times if you would like to go out for a drink after work. You are not sure if they are just being friendly or if they perhaps have a romantic interest. Your boss has not done anything inappropriate, but they are persistent in asking you out after work. You are concerned that it might affect the dynamics between you in the workplace.


(You might have to imagine that the STAY-AT-HOME restrictions are lifted because I know a lot of people are working from home at the moment 🙂 )


What is THE CARAMEL CRUNCH? Well, it’s all about decisions. When it comes to THE CRUNCH what would you do?

One of the definitions of the word CRUNCH is:

a crucial point or situation

 – generally involving a decision with weighty consequences

  • Your response can be a quickie. Please feel free to send a comment to say what you would do, and if you have time or are inclined, please feel free to explain your decision.
  • If you would like to create a post with a longer explanation of your decision, please pingback to THE CARAMEL CRUNCH post. (Or copy and paste a link to your post in the comments section – please feel free.)

If you know anything about CRUSHED CARAMEL, you will probably realize I am a gentle soul, so my questions are not supposed to be terrifying! What I am hoping for really is to see a variety of responses. Afterall, it’s pretty obvious that WordPress bloggers are from a huge variety of backgrounds and cultures. It would be fascinating to learn more about how we as individuals make decisions.


Some of the questions I am going to ask are questions I have discussed with friends when we have been having coffee or dinner. I often find there is no clear right or wrong. It can be so much a matter of our individual experiences and outlook. I find it fascinating how very different some of us are when it comes to decision making.

We all have different outlooks, and may make different decisions. I am really looking forward to learning WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

    1. If someone has not done something inappropriate and seems like they are decent, I would not want to be too brash with them to begin with. Even if I was not really interested I would try to be kind about it.
      I have had a couple of awful experiences with bosses (another story) who were very inappropriate. But if someone is just asking and accepts yes or no without punishing you, I have no issue with someone just expressing an interest.


    1. Politeness is always the way. i don’t have a problem with someone expressing an interest so long as they accept it if the answer is no. But I would always try to dignify someone. There is nothing wrong with being sweet on someone else, so long as you can accept they may not be sweet on you.

    1. I think you are right. Dealing with it firmly but in a dignified way should help to get back to normal and eliminate any atmosphere at work.


  1. If he’s persistent, that’s an indicator that he’s probably got romantic intentions.
    I would go out once to see what happens. If it turns out he’s only being friendly, then fine, but if it turns out he’s got romantic interests I would be searching my own heart and praying to know if I should continue going out with him.
