I work in a tiny office with 6 people. I have a crush on one of them. I’d like to get to know him better, but feel like everyone can tell I have a crush on him, even though I keep a professional distance. I can’t afford to mess up this job. The crush gnaws at me. What can I do about it besides quit?
