Joanna joined us live on the air today for her OPP. She has been working with this great guy for about a year and a half now and she’s developed quite the crush. She’s never said anything though because he has a girlfriend. Recently, she found out that his relationship has been a bit rocky and from her understanding he’s been giving her signals that he might be interested and that things will probably end with his current girlfriend. From the looks of it, it doesn’t look like he will be devastated, either. Even though they are still together, she wants to step in and at least let him know that she likes him. Do you think she should?
When she was asked by Slacker and Steve if she was willing to be the rebound, she clearly made it out to seem like she was looking for a relationship, so they don’t know what would be the best way to go. Slacker leaned one way and Steve leaned another… Slacker likes to call this “The Greasy.” How he explains it is, the Broncos had this quarterback John Elway, that no matter who came in after him, he was going to suck… Does she really want to be that follow up, the greasy? Or does she want to be the Tebow or the Manning? Slacker also brought up the question, Have you ever been in a relationship that got rocky and got better? He doesn’t think Joanna would like to hear about another girl sniffing around while she’s trying to fix things and Joanna could be considered that girl sniffing around right now. Steve thinks she just needs to be around and be that co-worker so when things break; she’s the one he sees. In other words, hover.
Do you think Joanna should move in and say something or is it inappropriate? Do you have any other advice for her?
I am telling you right now, if she starts to move in on the rocky relationship, she is in for a nightmare. She thinks it’ll be all fun to get the guy and as some would put it, win the game, but truth is, you don’t want to go there! Things get messy and in a hurry to a point where you don’t know how to turn the tables and make it all go away. It’s just not something you don’t want to get in the middle of. My advice would be to let their relationship play out and if they do end, give them time to land back on their own two feet again. Just because it’s rocky doesn’t mean it’s on its way to being over…
