Having a pleasant relationship with
your boss is very cool. It’s actually
pretty solid when there’s respect,
professionalism and usual coffee
breaks where you get to chat about
each other’s insta feeds. But what if it
turns out you’re getting way too close?

loving friendship from your
professional, working relationship,
and all that comes with it.
