'Should I propose to my boss?'

Published: Dec 09, 2013, 23:28 IST | Dear Diana |

Dear Diana, I'm 29 and single. I work for a company that pays me well and I see a bright future ahead.

Much of the credit goes to my boss who is a level-headed woman. She has been helpful throughout with her calm demeanor. I recently realised that I have a thing for her. She’s seven years older to me and divorced with a three-year-old son. Would it be okay if I expressed my feelings towards her? Should I just propose to her?

Dear Agni,
Do you want to mess up your career? When things are going good for you on the professional front, why are you ruining your personal as well as professional life. Your boss is showering you with attention because you are good at your job. You are mistaking it for love. It appears that she is an understanding and caring boss, but that does not spell that she is in love with you. You are mistaking her kindness for love. Instead, concentrate on your job and think of moving up the ladder. Propose to her and get ready to be scalded.

Diana will solve it!
