Dating girl in same bank & floor, diff team/division

Have been really hitting it off with a hot first year analyst during social and drinking environments. I work in a large trading floor type environment, she's on the other side of the same floor but sells a different product/has different clients. She might actually be a middle office/valuations chick, idk, but she's hot and want to hook up with her. Is this allowed/condemned? My buddies have been joking about who's going to be the first to sleep with her.

Nobody is joking. Plant your flag and assert your territory.

Nothing better than taking the cling wrap off that pussy.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess that you don't end up taking her down. Brad wouldn't make a thread on WSO asking if it's a good idea to bang his hot MO colleague.

Agreed. Brad wouldn't make a thread on WSO, and Chad has already fucked her but hasn't said anything because he enjoys watching everyone else chase it around and make asses of themselves.

I can already see the headline on CNN: "Internet forum user 'GridironCEO' fired from investment bank amidst sexual harassment allegations from coworker. #MeToo." It's not a safe time for a man to be shitting where he eats. Proceed at your own risk, my brother.

That.

There's plenty of attractive women in NYC (or any other major city for that matter). Don't do anything stupid at work.

Be sure to pay attention to her non-verbal cues I think

Really bro? There aren't a ton of other chicks in your city you could bang? Not worth the HR complaint.

If you have to make a post on WSO full of strangers to decide whether to go after a girl or not you're probably not going to pursue it.

Prove me wrong!

tities -- I mean title is misleading. It should say "banging girl in same bank floor..." not dating. they are different. anyways, yes you should pursue

I think you will be fine as long as you show her a good time and are confident in your performance, you should be all set. On the other hand, you may be in danger of assuming potential sexual harassment claims in the event that she arbitrarily was dissatisfied for whatever reason.

Caveat Emptor here. I don't think you'll run into any real issues, but tread cautiously.

get after it. different group, different manager. you're good.

Jan 19, 2018

I believe the official rule is that two people, one who is a direct report to the other, so like bosses and people who report to them, are strictly not allowed. Anyone have past experiences with this?

Jan 19, 2018

Be aware of sexual harassment especially in work related environments. Shit is cray.

Since no one has said it yet, watch out for clinginess. Always applies but that shit will be magnified in an office environment. Sounds like you're older/more senior than her, too. In that case it will be even worse.

As a VP in PE in Toronto, I can tell you it is a bad idea. I have seen colleagues do that back when I was an analyst, and it never ended well. Unless you plan on getting into a serious relationship with her, I would not do that because it would create a lot of tensions and awkwardness between the two of you.

To be honest, I do not care if my juniors had sex or hooked up with each other. But I still want them to be able to work together and act professionally around me. It's just a big risk, when you know there are many other girls outside of your work.
My 2 cents!

Agree. It can come back after you. If I were you I would ask her to hang out in a group and meet her squad / roommate / sister / cousin - safer territory, probably same "busy".

I once heard my boss saying that he likes to grab them by the pussy. Media created a scandal out of it but 63MM people didn't give a single fuck.
So I'd say you are in the clear.

I wonder if the term don't shit where you eat means anything anymore.

Jan 20, 2018

10 years ago I would have said you may spelunk at your hearts content but in today's world it's best if your dating pool is about 2-3 social circles removed from your work environment.

Make sure she is sane and mature, which is a lot harder to do than it seems. But if you know yourself and your history of reading people, then proceed to date her if you are confident. However, people will do crazy things when desperate, so understand that there will always be risk to you regardless what you think of her in a range of normal states.

Obviously this is a dick driven move, but make sure your brain and intuitions have an equivalent seat at the decision making table. Good luck and pics or didn't happen.

Your Chill/Pull ratio right now is 1:0.

Jan 24, 2018

The answer is no, OP, but it doesn't matter, because the sort of guy who needs to ask internet strangers whether it's a good idea to bang the "hot chick" on his floor is probably a closet case who's never had sober, consensual sex with another woman, anyway. Enjoy your fantasies, though, and be sure to get into detail with your friends about all the totally hot, sexy, sexual things you'd totally do to her. Bonus points if you can get one of your bros to agree to meet after work for Eiffel Tower practice.

And the rest of you, saying "pussy is pussy" and stupid shit like that, need to get off reddit and start actually interacting with women in the real world (to the extent they don't simply just laugh at you when you approach them now). That's the sort of shit twelve year olds say when they're trying to look cool in front of their friends. Are you all twelve?

There is nothing more pathetic than nerds on a finance forum role playing "alpha male." Grow up.
