This woman joined my work about 6 months ago. I immediately hit it off with her, we got on very well, too well and she is very attractive. She seemed very very into me too. I could see how mutually attracted we were, and she'd flirt hard and try to get to know me etc.
But I didn't take any action due to the high risk situation of it. In fact getting close to her I felt was already too much.
Over the period of months that high attraction fire in her kind of wained as I didn't take any action. But she still wants to remain close and flirt and joke with me. She started seeing someone else and sometimes casually brings him up.
The thing is, I kind of feel obligated to continue to interact with her to save face. But somehow doing this really kills my confidence? I'm not sure if its childish, but to chat with her like one of her girlfriends when I find her attractive and she used to be super into me somehow feels kind of demeaning. These interactions kill my confidence somehow? I'm not exactly sure why.
Any tips to somehow regain some frame in these and not be the handbag.
