I work in a place with a lot of guys who are 1-3 years younger than me. They’re mostly friends outside of work, or at least know each other and occasionally frequent the same parties. Every day it seems like they’re talking about something that happened outside of work. When we’re all there, working and hanging out, it’s really a lot of fun. Never fully seems like work to me because I enjoy the atmosphere so much.
But tonight, I was invited to hang out with them… outside of work. First time! It sounds really lame but I definitely want to go. Is that weird? Are they THAT much younger than me? (23 vs. 19-21). It will definitely be hard to go from work friend to friend friend, but I really do want to. I decided not to go tonight, but the question still stands. How do I make the jump without it being awkward, if they ask again?
Oh yeah, one last piece of info… I’m their boss.
