I have had several wome approach me due to my position and what they saw as power...

...and I would never go there.

I don;t know what level you ae in, but you are potentially playing with fire, or need to get a new job.

I am not a manager. Working relationships odds of working out are very slim. I think you being around a person for a long duration feelings will eventually will start to develop. I think this is the reason why you have feelings for this person. I think when you work at a job you should keep business separate from personal.

I have been attracted and thought about WHAT IF a few times. I would NEVER jeopardize my career, my intregrity or my reputation, by acting out on those feelings.

If you're a manager, you need to act professionally and realize that having a "crush" on an employee of yours is totally inappropriate.

This is just asking for problems at work. That could potentially make that employee and other co-workers very uncomfortable.

I would suggest you focus more on doing your job and setting a good example for employees than acting like a high school kid.
