I just set up a policy for this beautiful blonde. I've been in insurance 9yrs now and have never asked a customer out. I'm seriously considering asking her out and was wondering whether or not it's unprofessional to ask a customer out? 36/24/36 flawless body and a face like reese witherspoon...d*mn my stupid professionalism.

I'm sure you'll treat him to a great night out, but take it slow.

Yes, it's unprofessional, you creeper. I guess you can always risk it and hope she's a whore with low self-esteem and not someone who might stop doing business with a sleazebag.

Meh, he's an insurance salesman. I don't really see how him dating a client could be construed as unprofessional. Not that I'm discounting the possibility, I just don't see it. My dating a Private or a President getting a blow job from a chunky intern, those would be examples of unprofessional behavior. This is more like a cashier dating someone that went through their line buying groceries. Besides, this could be the only chance he gets to meet the man of his dreams, and I for one would feel awful if anything I said prevented true love like that.

I didn't say it was unprofessional -- he's an insurance salesman, who cares? I wouldn't even call the customer a "client"; it's more like "Allstate said I have to talk to you to get insurance so let's get this over with so I don't have to speak to you again".

I said he shouldn't be asking random people for validation.

-shrug- I think he is just trying to brag about how he found the guy of his dreams.

Good luck Varus. Just remember not to put out until at least the 3rd date even if he is begging you. That will just make you look desperate.

Serious answer:

Is it unprofessional? Maybe. Does that even matter? No. If you really like her, ask her out. Get another job if you have to. In recent years I've found it's the things we don't do and don't say that we regret the most.

Bravo for starting a thread that wasn't your typical liberal trolling.

Yes it's unprofessional. Depending on the rules of your office, it may even be a fire-able offense.

But only IF you're caught.

Honestly, if anyone's temperament could get readjusted by a good porking, it's yours. So why don't you take a play from the liberal playbook & go and get your dick wet. It'll be good for you, good for us, & while it'll probably be the stuff of nightmare's for her- SOMEONE needs to take one for the team, why not her?

Not very likely i'm going to fire myself. But I do agree it is unprofessional which is why I havn't acted on it. I do however know what she's studying at UT so would it be wrong to place myself in places where I might run into her away from the office?

Yes it matters. And I don't know if I really like her. I like how she looks and I'm pretty sure she's not a block head like most of the cute girls around here. But again do I really want to be that guy who's hitting on customers? That's a slippery slope I don't think i'm willing to go down.

Stalking would be sitting outside her apartment and watching her every move. Maybe digging through her trash to discover her interests and tastes. You know like something you liberals would do to Palin.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.
