Ever since I've started my job 5 months ago, I've never shown attraction towards one of my female managers because I knew our policy doesn't allow managers to have a relationship with their subordinates.
I'm 26 and she's a couple years younger than me and has a petite body - she's my type, but I've always kept our relationship strictly professional. In fact, she just recently found out that I'm actually a bit of a smartass/asshole/pervert from my general manager, while we were eating out, and I've only showed my outer shell towards her - a quiet, nice guy.
Anyway, that's beside the point; a bunch of us went bowling a few hours ago and she was wearing a blouse; at one point she lifted her arms to fix her hair and her blouse lifted up, revealing a very sexy navel.
How do I repress my sexual feelings towards that? I don't want to start masturbating to her because it'll just make things worse.
You don't. It's her that has to adhere to the policy of your company, not you. Don't be a daft nice guy.
Start flirting with her at work, comment on her hair or dress. Get into casual talks. Do all this while out of sight from others, so it stay a secret. Eventually you'll get her number, and then fuck her during first date.
Go for it.
It'll be sexual harassment if he's saying sexual things, not casual compliments on her hair or her dress.
Op, you want to avoid having feelings for her? You just need to keep doing what youre doing. Put her in the friendzone. You can be friendly, even get to know her -just a bit- outside of work. But nothing more.
Then when one of you leaves the company, hit it so hard if they pulled you out, they'd become the king of England.
This is the most bullshit analogy ever.
I work for a Forbes top50 US company, in a mixed gender office environment, and I see couples being formed all the time. Yes, if they split up, usually one of them leaves the company. But this also happens between management and regular employee.
there are some things in life you just can't repress.
if i were you, i'd try to make her the guilty one. flirt, but up to a point so that she actually chases YOU. you want her to be the active part so that you can stop blaming yourself. i believe you'll then have an easier time "rejecting" the urges.
