Colleague dumped her boyfriend after we flirted but I don't want to be with her

DEAR DEIDRE: I DON’T know how to get out of the trouble my flirting has got me into.

I’ve been having cosy chats with a cute girl at work for years.

We even had a couple of kisses in the office when we were the last ones there.

I didn’t think it would go anywhere because she had a serious boyfriend.

I’m 29 and she’s 25. But yesterday she came into work and announced she had broken up with him – for me.

We had spoken about the fact we’d love to be with each other but that it wasn’t possible.

I never meant I wanted to be with her and now I’m panicking. I don’t mix business with pleasure.

DEIDRE SAYS: Do not promise what you cannot deliver.

Rather than waste any more of this poor girl’s time, it would be best if you come clean and admit you were only having fun.

Don’t string her along any more – and in future, if you don’t want to mix business with pleasure, keep the two separate.

That includes kissing colleagues in the office.
