Dating at work can be complicated. A lot of companies discourage office dating but by the time Friday drinks rolls around, it's all on.
This week on Girls On Top podcast, Brodie Kane, Caitlin Marett and Gracie Taylor answer a very tricky listener question from a girl who has been hooking up with a guy from work, whom she recently found out had a girlfriend.
The catch? She continues to sleep with him and his girlfriend has no idea. She says she "really likes him" and there is a "1% chance" he would actually leave his girlfriend for her. Plus she is also in "his close friend group" and has now reached out for advice about how to deal with the situation.
"I am brutal on this one sorry. Get rid of him! I don't care if it hurts or it's hard. He's a sh*t bag, it's gone on too long. If you have to remove yourself from the circle of friends. This is not cool. This is not healthy for you or the girlfriend. Stop it right now. Be a big girl, put your big girl pants on and end it," says Brodie.
"Just keep the pants on! Keep your big girl pants on," says Gracie.
However, Caitlin had a differing opinion.
"I have a bit of sympathy for this girl because she had no idea he had a girlfriend. You can't help who you fall for. It sucks! I feel so sorry for her," says Caitlin.
"She is the only one that can fix this. It will take a lot of bravery and courage and a lot of heartache and it will hurt. There is no magic fix you just have to suck it up and get the hell out of there," says Brodie.
"I think maybe she should just leave the job completely," says Gracie.
"I think her priority is herself, not old sh*t bag. She needs to remove herself from that environment. If she is going to confront that girl (his girlfriend) she is going to get dragged into that environment. I think her priority is her, getting herself out of it. The girlfriend has to find out for herself," says Brodie.
Kane then goes on to share her thoughts about her past workplace relationships.
"We've all had a bonk with someone at work and time heals things. There's always the awkward chat after… but time does heals things."
