Deal-breaking email mistake got me reported to HR — now I may lose my dream job
I've been working at my company for over a year and a half, and I've come to develop feelings for one of my coworkers (who's on another team). There's no company policy against relationships between coworkers — although you do have to report it to HR — and I thought this coworker felt similarly, so I reached out. I sent a totally embarrassing, romantic poem via email to my coworker.
He did not feel similarly and reported me to HR. I feel so terrible and I think this may cost me my role! How can I move forward and not tarnish my reputation with the company — or my coworker?
