Canoodling with an office coworker might cause real trouble. It may seem like there’ll never be a danger, but kissing a coworker is guaranteed to change things.
I’m totally petrified that this happened at the annual office party. Things got out of hand and my coworker kissed me, which I enthusiastically reciprocated. It wasn’t just a peck. We basically hooked up with each other for a full ten minutes until it was time to leave.
Luckily everyone at the office was drunk and I saw a couple of coworker act like absolute idiots. (My boss was throwing up on his desk, another coworker was pretending to pole-dance in the pantry area, etc.) I won’t lie, I feel kissing a coworker is a morally wrong thing to do.
My coworker who kissed me is a nice enough guy, but I don’t think either of us is thinking future. I am so embarrassed. I liked him but I never imagined I’d do anything like this. Apologizing to him would be weird. Ignoring the whole thing feels weird too. What is right? What should be my next step?
