    And the guacamole is delicious, I'm sharing it with everyone, except for him. I told him he can come by before the end of his shift to have some though.

    This should straighten him right up.
    Okay, a couple of CYA points here:

    First, can the reassignment be construed as a step down for him? If so, document your reasons for making the change, to protect yourself.

    Second, if you share the guacamole with him, do not offer to eat it off of any part of his anatomy. It might be misunderstood as an advance.

    The reassignment was a one day thing(for now) It wasn't a step down, I just made him work in a different department that needed help due to high volume.

    As for the guacamole, it was long gone before he had a chance to try it. I predict more avocados in my future.

    One observation I've made, he has many lady friends stop by to ask for him. Hmmmm.

    Hawkgirl ...

    Put aside all the advice we have given in here for a moment.

    The most important thing is for you to find out if he is Conservative or Liberal! ...

    That could mean that he's a player, or that women simply like him, which you have already confirmed because, let's face it, you're a woman and you like him. Don't read too much into that. The critical issues are the ones raised about the workplace, your position and his and the second and third order effects on your job. If the reassignment has made dating him safer from that perspective, then you can reevaluate the situation, but don't lose sight of the important thing, which is your career.

    I wouldn't, it pays my bills. That's the thing..I ALWAYS play it safe and do the right thing when it comes down to it. But flirting is harmless. That's where I shall keep it.

    Work is work. I've been very close to a couple co-workers and now we hardly speak. A couple others we ended up in very difficult situations. Work and relationships usually do not work so I tend to run like hell the other way now.

    Now at work there is a love fest between two younger location leaders. It's against the rules and it's so obvious I puke a little...
