Basically The Office
A labmate of mine is currently engaged but I have since developed feelings for them; it's something of which I'm not super proud but I have grown very fond of this individual. We spend lots of time together and have gotten to know each other's deepest secrets and have gotten quite candid in recent memory. People thought we were already dating but that was obviously not the case. There is nothing wrong with this person's fiance; that individual is very nice, but I feel that I am so much better for the target person. I'm trying to suppress these feelings before I end up doing something really stupid. I don't want to ruin this friendship because my labmate is one of my dearest friends and colleagues. It hurts at times.
