Is this a big no-no?

Originally interned in consulting my junior summer but made me realize I wanted to really work in finance. Something my manager understood so I was able to make the jump to a BB. Had a massive crush on her throughout the summer (she was 28, I am 21). The office I interned in was my home city. I matched with her on tinder/hinge/bumble purely coincidentally (home rn for break and have not spoken to her since internship end) and she hit me up asking if I wanted to go grab a drink and catch up in a coming evening. Is it an absolute no-no if I go and flirt with her and see if something is there. We meshed really well in the summer and had a lot of similar interests and whatnot. At the same time, she is older and was my manager. If I was returning to the same firm, I would obviously not pursue something like this but was interested if WSO had any similar stories/advice.

Just go for it. She's your former manager and if you're both cool about the age gap then who cares. I've dated within my office a couple of times and as long as you're not an idiot, you both want something similar and she isn't crazy (in which case you wouldn't be going near her anyway) nothing bad has happened even after it ended.

Lol I am going, my only concern is I do not know if I should treat it as a professional catchup or try to slide in lol. Or if that is something I should decide depending on the moment.

This almost sounds too good to be true - as if you wrote this because you're horny and wanted to do some fantasizing.

 

But the fact that you are nervous about fucking a girl you matched with on tinder is so on brand for WSO I think it's real. Go enjoy

Yeah no, sounds like your typical late night fantasy. No judging tho, Lord knows I lusted after some busty teachers and superiors once or twice. But try to keep that shizzle off WSO, my man.
