Over a year’s time, my boss kept asking me for a date. I kept telling him that I would never date anyone who had power over my job. I heard through the grapevine that he had asked for a transfer to another department. When his boss asked him why he wanted to move, he said it was so I would go on a date with him.
Postscript: He transferred, I dated him then married him. Now, I’m his boss.
