Let’s face it, it’s hard enough to work up the nerve to approach someone you like in any setting, but the office in Dallas or anywhere else is a taboo place that makes it even more troublesome. There’s something unsettling about dating a co-worker and seeing them day in and day out, privy to the office gossip and inner-workings that would normally never be shared so closely with a suitor. What if it doesn’t work out? What if other co-workers find out? What if it’s against company policy? All good worries mind you, but totally tossed by the wayside if your crush has reached epic proportions.
If your crush has manifested itself into shy glances and heart palpitations, sometimes you need a way to express how you feel without saying the words (especially since that means waiting for the right opportunity). So, if you can’t say it, don’t want to type it in a generic email, and don’t want to stoop to third grade and have a friend drop the hint to your beloved, you have to get creative. I once fabricated a story about needing help with a script-writing project (that didn’t exist) and enlisted the help of a screenwriter I had a crush on to help me with this “monstrous assignment.” It took a few meetings where I talked about everything BUT the project until he figured out I wasn’t interested in his screenwriting as much as I was him. Did my plan work? You bet!
Watch the adorably cute “Post-It Love” with all these thoughts in mind. This little film just might be the inspiration you need! Sometimes all it takes is a little brainstorming, some artistic talent, and a large supply of office products to express how you feel and steal the heart of the one you love.
