The Office Crush
I’ve had a crush on my colleague, Jake, for as long as I can remember. I’d always imagined us working late, discussing the latest project, and flirting subtly with each other. But when we finally had to work on a project together, I quickly realized that my crush was just that – a crush. Jake was arrogant and rude, never listened to my ideas, and talked over me constantly.
He didn’t care about the project, just about getting his own way. I couldn’t believe I’d wasted so much time thinking about him when he turned out to be such a jerk.
I was disappointed to see that my crush was based on fantasy and not on reality. I realized that he was not the kind, caring person I had thought he was. I decided to focus on my own goals and stopped hoping for a romance that would never happen.
In the end, I found success in my career and discovered that I didn’t need a man to feel fulfilled.
