You are reading page 2 of A floor crush - how do I deal with this?. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

Avoid having romantic relationships with coworkers. Although tempting, it can lead to a whole set of new problems. If for some reason you two break up, then that will create tension on the floor between the two of you and with all your other coworkers. It is also not safe for patients, if either one of you refuse to help the other with their patients, eg. boosting patient up etc, due to your own personal problems. Even if the two of you don't break up, it will still make things awkward for everyone else on the floor. Don't forget you will be gossiped about. The only time this would work is if the two of you work on different floors.

It doesn't sound like you are that interested in her, and she manipulated you into the relationship. You mentioned she has "emotional issues"-- who know how deep they run. You could jeopardize your career as well if things don't go well and she reports you to the manager. I have seen this happen to two coworkers who were dating, things went south, and the female reported the male to the manager and he was fired, even though the allegations were not true. Seeing how competitive nursing jobs are, you do not want to find yourself out of a job. This is an extreme perspective, yes, but do not discount it.

I'll give you that. I meant it more in the "I want to be with you...but I simply cannot" *swoons and dramatically turns away, then looks back over shoulder with glistening eyes*

I myself am a Pride and Prejudice fan. But that level of romantic drama isn't what I'd expect to see on a nursing forum.

However, OP, you may take some advice from the beginning of Pride and Prejudice. If she asks you if you dance, do say "not if I can help it," turn swiftly enough to let your coattails sway, and then don't look back. Because you have a job to do and don't have time to play the role of Mr. Darcy while you're taking care of patients.

Best response ever.

Why did you have a FOUR HOUR conversation with someone that you aren't

interested in? I mean seriously. FOUR HOURS?

"You here FOUR HOUR!!? Why you here FOUR HOUR???"

Sorry. :)

Agreed ....sounds like a 13 year old's "dear diary" entry.

Sour lemon, I may be wrong, but didn't you have a similar post?
