I've fallen for a customer in our hotel

Sep 07, 2012, 06:22 IST | Dear Diana

Dear Diana, I work in a hotel and have fallen in love with one of our regular customers. She seems older than me and is quite affluent whereas I'm just a room attendant.

I’m pretty obsessive about her and make it a point to strike a conversation whenever she stays in our hotel (which is quite often). She always smiles at me. Should I go ahead and tell her about my feelings? What if she complains about me and I lose my job? I won’t be surprised but I can’t afford to lose this job.

Dear Bharat,
I must say that you are living in your own la la land. You are fully aware of the consequences still you want to play with fire! And you know what the answer is going to be. You are obsessed with her — that’s it. She considers you to be a mere hotel employee. Just because she smiles at you and strikes a conversation with you does not mean that she, too, is in love with you. My dear, she is just being nice to you. You need to get rid of your obsession. She may be married or have someone in your life. And yes, you will lose your job if you try doing anything stupid with her. Express your love at your own risk and face the consequences.
