Beat Breakfast Panel:Follow-up Friday:Do I let my friend date my boss?

We’re checking in with with Beat listeners to see how they made out after they sent in their questions to us – and you – for help.  Every Friday, it’s a Follow-Up Friday on the Beat Breakfast Panel.

Original Panel

My best friend met me after work for drinks last week and a few of my co-workers and my boss were also there and she and my boss really hit it off.  He’s since messaged her and asked her out.

She says she won’t go out with him if it’ll make me uncomfortable, but I can tell she wants to and really likes him.  To be honest, it does make me uncomfortable. What if it doesn’t go well? Or he finds out personal things about me? I also don’t want to get caught in the middle, but if I say she can’t date him, they’ll both blame me for it.  What do I do? -Date etiquette in Waterloo

Follow-Up

Hey Carlos & Laura,

I told my friend that she didn’t need my permission if she wanted to date my boss and in the end it’s none of my business.  In fact I stressed that I didn’t want to be any of my business and I didn’t want to get in the middle of whatever happens.

Well, what’s happening is things are moving fast.  They see each other all the time and they’re both very happy.  In fact I’m not sure I’ve ever seen my boss SO happy. A fringe benefit of this has been how positively this is affecting my job.  My boss is in a better mood, he has tons of praise for me and for the first time in years I’m getting a raise! Is this all because my friend and he are dating?  I like to think it’s because I’ve been working hard but to be honest I haven’t.  So everyone wins!  Let’s hope it stays this way.  -Date etiquette in Waterloo
