I've seen people posting all kinds of stuff on wso so please don't judge me for being an emotional bitch spilling beans out.
I did not directly work under this person (technically his branch is another entity so we didn't even work in the same company), but he was involved in SA recruiting and does oversee the operations of the firm I previously interned.
During a closing dinner, he asked me to come and visit his place whenever I'm back in town after my internship. My brain literally stopped functioning hearing him saying that. Now I got FT job at a different place and was thinking I might say yes to the invitation.
I never joked about office romance along with my guy friends when they discuss how hot some of their coworkers are cause I'm actually falling for one and it's no joke. Even without taking into account the recent Easterbrook incident, going out with someone who could be described as your boss, even just a previous boss, seems like THE worst idea for a banker whose pristine reputation is highly if not most valued. Also the fact that I'm a woman just makes this whole thing look like a quid pro quo scandal.
Seriously I hope someone slap me on the face and tell me not to make any stupid move cause I feel like I'm about to.
