I only started the job about four weeks ago and got invited out last night with a few of them. Went along and had one or two too many and ended up kissing one of the guys I work with. To make matters worse I was so embarrassed about I just left then without saying bye to any of them.
I do have a bit of a crush on him but can't imagine facing him or any of them that were there again!

Style it out.

Tis the only way.

Go in, be friendly, you'll be absolutely fine.

Presumably he kissed you too as you haven't suggested any use of force! The British way is never to mention it again, although if you fancy him and he's single, and taking into account that he did kiss you, that might not be the best way forward here.

Insist you were spiked?

PinkSquash Sat 18-Feb-17 19:44:47

Go into work and hold your head high. Nothing to be ashamed of?

JenniferYellowHat1980 Sat 18-Feb-17 19:49:45

Did he kiss you back? confused

I know I'm probably over thinking it but that's what I do best it seems.
Cardibach he actually was the first to make a move,not that I was complaining, and as much as I'd like the possibility of something more we work way too closely for it to happen.

Jennifer he actually kissed me first.

Oh I've done this (long time a go). Feel embarrassed just thinking about it.

Just laugh about it if anyone brings it up but don't start any conversations about the night out. They might discuss it Monday but by Wednesday it will all be forgotten about

I snogged my now DH at a works Xmas do, Monday morning they were trying to rib us both about it but he was so hot and everyone fancied him so I just said - you bet I did, jealous?!

Trainspotting1984 Sat 18-Feb-17 19:55:42

Oh love don't worry. Style it out. Bet he fancies you too

cardibach Sat 18-Feb-17 19:56:46

I don't really understand 'work to closely' as a reason not to be with someone. Unless you are porn stars - that could be awkward grin.

Hmmm...is navy okay for my wedding hat?

RottenTomatoes959 Sat 18-Feb-17 19:59:00

No nothing so adventurous grin But its a small enough office and if we did start something and it went downhill it would make for a very awkward time at work.

tenterden Sat 18-Feb-17 20:05:26

Agree, style it out! We've all done it! grin

Mumoftwoyoungkids Sat 18-Feb-17 20:10:22

Where I work I am very unusual in that my husband does not work there too.

ReasonablyIntelligent Sat 18-Feb-17 20:19:21

Oh you'll be grand. You didn't force yourself upon him, you've done nothing wrong.

Will it be a summer wedding?

JenniferYellowHat1980 Sat 18-Feb-17 20:28:48

How lovely. YABU to never show your face again at work.

Kbear Sat 18-Feb-17 20:33:22

I love the expression "style it out" - it makes me think you'd have to saunter in looking HOT with a feather boa that you'd swoosh over your shoulder as you walk through the office haha

what does it "actually mean" cos I've been known to be clueless about these things, particularly anything with "style" in the title !!

DeterminedToChange Sat 18-Feb-17 20:34:44

Do either of you have partners?

tenterden Sat 18-Feb-17 20:35:46

Tits and teeth grin

Heels on, smile, best foot forward.

Nonchalant comment if anyone has the temerity to mention it - "Oh, that was a bit of harmless fun"

Gileswithachainsaw Sat 18-Feb-17 20:36:27

Just go in as if nothing happened. Could be worse.

Least you didn't shag him and get caught by another staff member blush

JenniferYellowHat1980 Sat 18-Feb-17 20:40:34

Re styling it out: I tried this unsuccessfully once. I was at an outdoor event with family. A really hot guy was there with his friends. He kept looking over and gave me his number at the end.

Anyway at one point I'd carried my toddler brother closer to the arena to watch something. As the light was beginning to fade I popped my sunglasses on my head but as we were walking back they dropped down again onto my face. For some silly reason, because I knew Hot Guy was watching I thought I'd just leave them there as if my sunnies were simply obeying some telepathic instruction of mine rather than simply put them back up and acknowledge I hadn't intended it.

Anyway of course when I phoned him he reminded me of it and thought it funny then proceeded to mess me about over the phone for a few days before I cut my losses
