Should i date 9 year older man who i work with?

Hi Laura!


My name is Sarah and i'm 21 years old. I work doing marketing/event planning for a building that has tons of law firms, insurance companies, private businesses, etc. Its basically like i work for the building management company, and am there to do what i can for the tenants. I have only been working here for about three weeks, but love it, and i have a great relationship with my boss and coworkers, very friendly and family like.

A tenant who works in the building (Sam) and i have had recent interest in each other, however, hes 30 and i'm 21. I am very mature for my age and have been told so constantly, people always think i'm 26 or 27, and not 21. I don't feel so bad about the age difference, but my concerns are more that i still live with my parents as i save up for my apartment, and he supports himself, etc.

My parents are both high end attorneys, my dad is the Asst Attorney General of the state, so the house i live in is nice and i get a long with them well, i didn't fell a rush to move out since i just started the job and wanted to save one years salary before moving out.

Anyway, do you have any advice for me?
Thanks
Sarah

Dating someone at work can be very tricky...if you and Sam can date outside of work (no lunches together, making go-go eyes during work, touching each other in passing) then yes...dating a co-worker is fine...just keep it between the two of you...especially since you just started your job...as to whether or not you have your own place makes no difference...if you even thinking or planning on sleeping with this person...be smart...wait...wait...wait...go on dates for at least six months...even if you have to urge to jump him...if you do too soon...and he decides to break it off...you will be crushed & your job could be in jeopardy...play it smart from the start...you keep the control & pace...and remember...play it professional at work!
