Slight moral dilemma

Postby RugbyD » Fri Aug 04, 2006 3:32 am

OK so what i'm trying to do could be termed very simply and not full-story as: "so you're trying to steal a girl from a guy who just had brain cancer."

yeah i know it sound bad but its not. yes they were together when he was diagnosed, but they broke up b/c she couldn't handle all the terrible dramam of the situation. she still has a stroong emotional connection to him, and for good reason, and she brought him to our company outing today (thurs 8/2), but all of my research shows they are not 'together' so to speak. its post-surgery and stuff so hopefully they got it all out.

and so to make a long story short the hottest girl by far in my company essentially asked me out on a date by setting herself up to lose (85% chance) a bet that i gave her mulitple chances to win, in which i suggested we bet a dollar and she countered with lunch. if she won she said we were going to Hooters. i can't eat wings without making a giant spicy mess of myself. i will likely win the bet exactly 6 hours from this post.

am i doing something wrong here?

You're not stealing her, she's giving you an open invitation with that lunch bet thing.

I'm not sure what the Hooters thing is about, unless she wants to find out how much you like looking at boobs. A much better scenario for you is if she likes looking at boobs.

Eat the wings, men are supposed to be messy.




EDIT: The bigger question is something I just noticed. It's not about whether you should date a girl that left a guy with brain cancer, it's about whether you want to get into the mess that comes along with dating someone you work with.

Worried about bad kharma, aren't we? :-)

I say if you are just interested in getting a piece of that ass, then don't get involved. But if it's more than that, then it's okay don't hold back.

If they aren't together then there isn't an issue there, but I think Dude hit it here.

i'm front office and she's back office and there's not much in the way of interatction work-wise, so i tend to think it won't be a problem.

and when i say "giant spicy mess", i'm not talking about some orange on the chin. i really mean giant spicy mess.

That's a lot of baggage man... I mean, so they're not together anymore so going out with her isn't like this big horrible thing, but she's probably emotionally damaged by the whole thing and then you've got the guilt and the constant worrying and all that...

This sounds like an episode of Seinfeld or It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Everyone has a past, baggage, and a crazy situation at one time or another so I you like her and wanna deal with it, go for it.

as long as you arent friends with brain cancer guy i think its fine. they arent dating and thats that. the woman can make up her own mind and decide who she wants to date.

as for dipping the pen in company ink...it really depends on how your company is structured, whether you will see her a lot, if you both want to work their long-term, etc.
