I teach English here in Medellin. Though I have a business and I have not worked a 8775 regular job 8776 in a few years teaching English in Medellin has been the best move I could have made for my social life. I do NOT date my students. I am very North American in that regard. Though dating students in Medellin is not uncommon and sometimes not even frowned upon, it is definitely not acceptable in the United States, so I draw a line and never cross it. I am the leader in my classes and dating a student can get messy I can lose all credibility and position in class, so I avoid it all together.
The 8775 gringo effect 8776 is the reaction a foreign guy gets from girls here in Medellin. It is an immediate sense of curiosity that some Colombian women have upon meeting a foreigner. Most of my close friends here in Medellin are foreigners and I have seen girls break their neck checking them out as we walk down the street.
Your story makes me wonder if I 8767 m the only person in the world who makes a clear, blindingly obvious, can be seen from the moon line between my personal life and work. I have a respect for my workplace such that I would never conduct personal activities there such as have sex on the premises. In the same way I don 8767 t want my boss to come to my home, put his feet on the coffee table and start taking client calls. It 8767 s just rude. Have some respect people, geeze!!
I am considered a 8775 very attractive woman 8776 by many and I do not go online for validation, I truly am very busy with my job and I don 8767 t get out as often so online dating is easy, Plus some of my friends got married to guys they met online. But the guys ive met have been just 8775 okay 8776 better looking in their pics, and guys whom I would never date in real life and they knew it, so I rarely get asked out a 7nd time by average men.
I 8767 ve had two sets of bosses who were married (both sets owned their respective businesses there were no manager/employee dynamics there). They worked fine together, but I don 8767 t think I could do that, ever. I don 8767 t want to date anyone at work for two reasons:
I think trying to make rules about opposite sex co-workers being friends is fraught with way too much difficulty to ever enforce it in any meaningful way. Now, dating and marriage among co-workers is another matter entirely as that can present problems to a business all the way from awkward encounters if a fight has occurred between them to a shared embezzlement scheme.
Back in the day, I was a datacom plebe at the [then] nation 8767 s largest paging company. We were all (and I mean *EVERY* employee at corporate) called to an emergency meeting by the CEO. He rambled on about 8775 appropriate office behavior 8776 [I was bored and staring out the the 68th floor windows] but then he said something about supervisors having consensual relation with subordinates on office furniture. WTF??? Totally got *my* (and everyone else 8767 s) attention!!
i totaly agree with that! I by myself fund exat one of these girls!By casualty but i think more or less he s right in what he sais.
I know it 8767 s probably a typo (man should be men), but I got a chuckle about how Company X would word this if they were to go blatantly illegal and put it in their handbook or something:
8775 Woman, thou shalt not fraternize with man, or else face dismissal. 8776
I was at the bank the other day and I had to do a transaction at the teller. I was not really paying attention, but when I was called to the window the girl that was helping me was absolutely gorgeous. I smiled and said hi, then asked her how she was doing. I think she was taken aback because not many people actually ask her that.
