Girl from work asked me out?

So I met this girl last week, gave her a handshake and I saw her pupils dilate every time she spoke to me. She's the same age as me and is in HR. Our company is 95% men and banter with the girls helps the day go by quicker.

Since then she always comes to my office to have her lunch. Sits on my desk. Touches my hands, shoulder etc. Wants to go out for a walk with me during lunch time. Comes to our office when she's done with her work. Made me tea. Etc.

She played the whole "I'm conservative and I want 3 kids" move on me, even "accidentally" met me with her parents during lunch. Now she wants me to go to her place on the weekend.

I know I shouldn't do it. I feel like I'm risking a really good job for a girl that I barely know. She seems like a good girl but I really don't trust people easily and would rather get laid outside of work. Thoughts?

Lol the only thing more stupid than shitting where you eat is shitting where you eat with a girl from fucking HR.

If I were you, I’d secretly record all your interactions with this chick from now on, because shit is going to hit the fan when you reject her and she’s going to try and fuck you over.

That's the issue and keeping a record won't help him at all. Do you really think he will win with female team HR? Only if he has some very high up friends.

He is fucked either way...The real solution is to go full beta. With flowers and courting and "no sex before marriage" and ideally some crying albeit that one is hard to pull of. Anyway, he needs her to reject him gracefully.

[–]Blackhawk24792 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

It’s not for HR’s benefit, it’s for if/when he loses his job over it and/or the cops get involved.

If he has solid proof that whatever this crazy chick eventually accuses him of didn’t happen, then he’s got grounds to argue wrongful dismissal should he want to take the company to tribunal (they won’t want that).

By keeping it professional. LoL

Trust your gut, and maybe record her shenanigans.

Of course, I'd talk to her parents personally now that you've been introduced. Get some extra intel.

Grey Rock Technique.

Stop having lunch with her.

Stop making eye contact.

When she stops by, Give vague, one-word responses. Make no attempt to maintain conversation.

If she tries to shit test you or bitch about something, start monologuing about the most boring topic you can think of. Like, corporate tax brackets. Ignore anything she says until she gets lost.

[–]Guarnerre199553 points54 points  (4 children) | Copy

Bro I had a fling with the HR lady as well. I was 24 she was 27. Had fun, hookes up, she got mad, made my life fucked up at work.

I know it feels great, the attention. But dont do it, just dont

[–]throwitdownman1 point2 points  (3 children) | Copy

Gonna need details, would help. How did she make your work life bad, and how did you overcome it?

[–]Guarnerre19959 points10 points  (2 children) | Copy

Okay so little story.

I (24m) began working march 2019. Was fun for a couple of months, august 2019, this woman (27f) came, joined the HR dept.

It began with light conversations, sitting besides me, touching me, holding my hands. Now we are 1 month in. She feels comfortable with me, tells me her backstory. Rape, daddy issues, promiscuous past, abortion, suicide thoughts. Not gonna lie, I felt hard. Felt like i had to protect her. White knight syndrome I call it.

Fast forward, had sex, her true nature rises. Collegues see us together more than we should. Rumours start circulating, temperature rises. Makes it a bad workplace to function. Her and I are on a bad note, got me fired and emotionally broken.

Thats the moment I found TRP and its stories. So many red flags, so many actions I shouldnt have done. Took it as a lession.

Now 3 months passed by and honestly, reading these stories and learning about what I really want helped me allot. You can always pm me

Cya

[–]throwitdownman3 points4 points  (1 child) | Copy

Wow. So it’s the office politics and gossip which can spiral out of control. I can see that happening...water cooler talk and picking on you. Probably sucks to work there and being thought of as ‘that guy’.

So she felt the heat and may have thrown you under the bus, to keep her job/reputation.

[–]Guarnerre19952 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Yup, the dudes there felt cucked and the ladies that were left felt jealous. It was a bad environment. SHE actually tried to "save" my ass by treathening to leave, which only made things worse.

[–]McLovinReturns32 points33 points  (0 children) | Copy

Honestly you're in a tough spot. If you tell her you want to be strictly professional and no fooling around. This will make her want you more because you will be seen as untouchable and high value. If you Fuck her than well your work atmosphere will get ruined. My best advice would be to hit her with a solid "Going through a lot of personl/family stuff I can't have a relationship" this one has never failed me

[–]MrTricksterAM46 points47 points  (0 children) | Copy

Hard NO! Never fuck around with co-workers especially if they are in HR dept.

[–]akihonj17 points18 points  (0 children) | Copy

Is it just me or can anybody see another headline, male gets arrested and jailed for a false accusation.

There are more red flags with her than a Chinese army parade. Sorry dude but my advice then is like all of the others, don't shit where you eat.

Tell her thanks but, you want to keep things professional and do it in front of others so you have witnesses.

[–]leotard-princess10 points11 points  (0 children) | Copy

Do not shit where you eat. This is a massive problem. There is a reason why we all say don't shit where you eat. That's because we all thought we were too clever to get caught out by the dangers and went ahead and fucked a cool and easy work colleague thot.

Well guess what? We all ending up eating shit.

[–]EnemyAsmodeus33 points34 points  (2 children) | Copy

You're in deep shiit already. There's no way out of it unless you can softly ignore her advances with her confronting you about it. But she may not accept a hard no.

If you don't really like the girl that much and don't see yourself marrying her. I'd recommend dating her for a while, and just flat out be a terrible date. As in, suuuper boring, talk only intellectual stuff in a non-passionate way, ask a question that makes people think you are also retarded, you said she was conservative, act like a libertine with hinting at hedonistic views, say something heretical maybe.

And there you go, now she hates you and will just block you. Mission accomplished.

But the benefit here is that she doesn't hate you for rejecting her and won't seek revenge. Instead she'll hate you for being a loser and unworthy. Perfect.

[–]entrep417 points18 points  (1 child) | Copy

She'll probably like him even more because she'll realise that he doesn't care what she thinks and likes his confidence for voicing his opinion even when he knows it conflicts with her's.

What I would do, is what I used to do completely by accident when I was young 😂. Be completely oblivious. You have no idea that she likes you, she's just a co-worker being friendly. Don't accept her invitations to hang out and just stick with the guys. Eventually she'll get bored and move on.

[–]urbancore2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Or she will spread rumors at work about him based on the bullshit he said on the date.

[–]2319Skew7 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy

I've done it before. I do not recommend it. She wasn't HR until after we hooked up and while I don't regret it, I wouldn't do it again.

It creates a scenario where it can go side ways really fast and potentially ruin your career.

That said, if you are going through with it, make sure you log everything. I didn't have any negative (as far as I know) fallout from it because if she brought it to light, our interactions would expose her slutty side to the organization (nudes, fucked up dialogue etc, abuse of power, etc.).

But we live in a world where you're a guilty rapist if you switch sex positions without asking for permission and I can't think of a pussy worth ruining your life for.

[–]Endorsed ContributorNightwingTRP4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

[–]1Reddthrown6 points7 points  (2 children) | Copy

I've revived this alt account just to post this. Tread very carefully.

When I started out, one of my colleagues pulled all her moves on me. I was not interested and pretended not to notice and not to be available. Maybe not the best approach, but that's what I did.

After a few months she started dating someone else from the office. She then proceeded to tell everyone how evil I am. She turned that guy, who was almost a friend, against me. When I went to get coffee she'd come to my office and tell the people around what a bad person I was. She did all she could to spread rumors and make me look bad.

Now, imagine what she could have done if she were in HR.

Honestly, I don't know what advice to give you apart from being very careful. Maybe go all beta on her. But be very careful, you are in a delicate situation.

Edit: and this was in Argentina, where it’s cultural to sleep with staff. Women are the same everywhere. Be careful.

[–]throwitdownman0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Wait. That was not the outcome I expected. So you didn’t lay with her, and still had to deal with her games? Did it eventually get better?

On the other hand, I can equally see a scenario where if you went full beta, she may see you as beta-bux and continue chasing you.

[–]1Reddthrown2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

She never got over being rejected and hated me for it. There’s a reason women tend to never reject men outright: they would react badly if it happened to them.

And it did not get better. It got worse because she then proceeded to be very successful in our small field.

[–]1Shyrk5 points6 points  (1 child) | Copy

saw her pupils dilate every time we spoke

Well, if this isn’t the spergiest shit I’ve ever read, the fact that you haven’t absorbed a word of the sidebar would clinch the fact for me.

If you don’t work in the service industry or sometimes shitty retail, shitting where you eat has a high likelihood of biting you in the ass. And that’s WITHOUT the girl working in fucking HR...

If this didn’t sound so realistically naive, I’d be calling Troll.

[–]le_wolfe2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Lmao I was hoping someone would pick the 'dilated pupils'

[–]SpringsSoonerArrow3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

Be damn careful and tell her "I don't date girls where I work because of the problems IT WILL eventually cause me. It's really too bad we don't work at separate companies." If she changes jobs for you, you have a winner or a freak depending on how you feel about her.

[–]Velebit14 points15 points  (1 child) | Copy

If you are Bulgarian just do her. We are not anglocucks and our women are not rabid dogs like in the west. 90% of people who got married met through work for fuck sakes. I also don't know why would you think 'im conservative and want 3 kids' is a move she 'pulled'.

If she is in HR analyzing people is her job and she probably found you are outstanding, her pupuls dilating also means its not merely a calculation. Don't let american degeneracy dictate your life choices. Don't give those fucks any more power.

[–]Somelier12340 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Well said, I’m American but I agree.

[–]spedoid7 points8 points  (5 children) | Copy

If you really like her (sounds like you don't) then go. Otherwise it's not worth it. Meeting an amazing chick could work if you worked at like a large company. I would be 99% honest with her, tell her you want to but you work together so it might not be a great idea. The fact that she had her parents meet you is crazy lol. She must really fucking love you already, that is a bit crazy. She's already pegged you as the guy she wants to marry. It's nice to have a girl be obsessed with you but if you don't like her than fuck that. I would stop letting her lead you around and show more balls, only hang out with her if you want to. Also you don't know if maybe she has banged a few people in the office already and so if you banged her you would look stupid at the job. Other hand if everyone thinks she's great you could gain standing. It depends. How do you feel about her?

Is she hot? No seriously bro, how hot is she?

Good looks - 7/10. Needs a bit of work but can get really good. Behaves well and is social.
I think she's crazy too. While my colleague was not in the office she jumped on his computer and added herself on his facebook.

We have a lot in common like music, travelling and cultures we both like. But I still don't believe it as it seems too good to be true

[–]spedoid7 points8 points  (3 children) | Copy

Adding herself on Facebook is a huge red flag. Who the fuck thinks it's okay to go on someone else's Facebook or computer like that? What a psycho. She's the kind of girl that will go thru your phone and be like WHO THE FUCK IS BARBARA AND WHY DID SHE CALL YOU when Barbara is your mother. Stay away man

I know. While she was doing it I told her to leave his computer alone also. She said "I'm just adding myself on facebook".

I've also noticed that my boss doesn't like when she's around. When she sees him she immediately leaves.

I can't believe how pushy she is at times and how she thinks that such behavior is normal.

[–]BIitheFooI4 points5 points  (4 children) | Copy

Start voice recording on your phone when you see her coming by. It’s not worth it. Even if it’s good for awhile, when it goes to shit, she’ll have a ton of power over you. That’s my experience. I shat where I ate for about 2 years on and off and it was alright until I made moves to end it completely. Then she tried to ruin my life.

If you go to her place, make sure you’re recording voice somehow and save it in case shit hits the fan later.

Is it a job or a career?

That is, let's say she completely tanks your image in the company and gets you fired. Can you then go work somewhere else in the industry without problems?

If it's a job and you don't care, go for it. If it's a career in something specialized where everyone knows everyone else, and you want to stay in the career, NO WAY.

At my job theres a couple of coworkers who dated and some even got married (office job). So idk if I should believe the “Dont shit where you eat” hype fully. Although that is mostly to avoid awkwardness in case of a breakup. At the end of the day you guys are both guilty so she cant blackmail you for dating her (unless she is psycho). Idk up to you, take the risk or play it safe, the choice is yours.

Update: She keeps asking me to go around during lunch time.

Also, she started car sharing and my mate is absolutely fine with it even though I told him that the less people we give a ride to - the better.

First rule of interacting with females in the workplace is: Don't shit where you eat. Especially during these times where jobs are in high demand. But you already made a huge mistake and now you're deep in trouble. The only way I see you can come out of this situation unscathed is to pass yourself off as a LVM Beta. Act clingy and make her send you to the friend zone. Women absolutely despise it. That way you'll end up in good terms and she won't screw you over since she's HR and can very well do so. Also. Record all your interactions. And never do this again.
