Good morning and thank you so much for your message. I realize it's difficult to reach out. Please know I honor your courage.
My name is ***** ***** I am a psychotherapist in the Metro Boston area of the United States.
It's difficult to know where to begin as there are many pieces to this difficult puzzle....
First and foremost, you are currently in a relationship (although unhappy in it) and are not being fair to your current partner by going away with another man you are attracted to. If your relationship is unhealthy and/or you are unhappy, please make a plan to leave. You owe this to yourself and your partner.
Second, you and this man from work both fully understand the complexity of entering a relationship or even a one-night fling....especially when he reports to you. There is a clear power differential making it a bit lopsided. I fear your employee may feel obligated in some way to engage considering he reports to you. This could create serious problems and the potential loss of your job. Please tread carefully in this area.
I am very sorry, sweet soul, as I am sure this is not what you want to hear. Please don't concern yourself so much as to whether or not he will accept your advances and focus more on some of the other logistics such as your current relationship and your current job.
Have I answered your question? Is there anything else I can do to assist you further? I want to ensure you are pleased with my service. I also gently request you provide a star rating for me. Of course, we can continue to talk after the rating is provided.
Please take good care of yourself and feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.
