You laugh more heartily at their jokes and find them irresistibly fascinating. Coworker love can be extremely tricky especially if your company forbids or frowns upon inner office romance you or both of you are in a committed relationship or have your own personal policy on romance with someone at work. Maybe you just do not want anyone to know perhaps not even the target of your affections. Regardless of the reason you would like to keep your coworker crush under wraps there are ways you can hide your amorous feelings toward your coworker while trying to come to terms with the fact that this unrequited love may never or should never be realized. Treat the coworker as you would any other coworker. The easiest way to hide your feelings is to simply treat them normally. In theory this is simple but in practice it can be challenging. If it is difficult for you to keep things as usual then limit your contact with that coworker as much as reasonably possible. Dont flirt with them. This can be difficult especially if they tend to initiate the flirting. However reciprocating this behavior or initiating it will be one of the most obvious signals that you are interested in them. If you do flirt you wont be able to hide your love for them for long. Would you flirt with a coworker you are not interested in? Probably not. Avoid touching them. Obviously you should avoid touching your coworker in an inappropriate way but you should also avoid all physical contact with the exception of a professional handshake when necessary. Dont put your hand on their arm if they say something teasing dont come up behind them and put your hands on their shoulders and dont hug them. Besides being obvious signals of your interest it is also considered unprofessional in many working environments. Dont show favoritism. If you your love interest and other colleagues are debating an issue dont side with your love interest all the time. If it is an important business decision and the coworker youre in love with truly does have the best idea then by all means point out why their point of view makes the most sense. However with smaller more mundane decisions try to avoid siding with them if you can.Take a day or two off from work. If you feel that you are having trouble keeping it professional consider taking one or two days off work either by calling in sick or using vacation days. Sometimes a little space can really help clear the air and help you refocus on whats important.Consider asking to work on something different. In some cases you may work very directly with the person you are in love with. Hopefully taking steps to act professionally will help you hide your feelings but if you feel that you cannot comfortably continue to work with this person think about asking your boss to work on something different.
