Laughing on his part was wrong. But really, why are people confessing love to coworkers especially if they are unsure if the feelings are mutual. It puts both of you in a real awkward position. IMO, telling someone you like them or asking them on a casual date is way more appropriate then confessing love. That comes off real intense and many people don't know how to react.

Well damn, he could've at least saved himself from being an asshat and at least respect your feelings and just have turned you down gently. Jeez, people just don't know how not to be an asshole these days.

71 - He doesn't seem to interested to go out with her anyway, but I agree with you; she should have at least tried to check if he's interested before making such a big confession. The co-worker is an asshole though, and could have turned her down in a much nicer way.

Girls are the same way- for over a year, whenever I've asked a girl for her number, the only reaction I've gotten was the girl i was asking doubling over laughing. Every fucking time. -_-

43- Damn, talk about perseverance. Hopefully now you've realized if that is how a girl reacts to you, every single time, that you should move on to someone who reciprocates your feelings. I am sorry you had to deal with that though. That must have been tough.

Okay, someone please come find me and punch the stupidity out of me. Sorry, 43, I read that as you asked the same girl for her number over and over for a year straight.

I thought that was a bit extreme, too! I mean I've been lectured about leaving early before, but nothing this drastic. Maybe OP's boss is secretly in love with her, and was just so pissed at that guy for being dumb enough to turn her down, that he fired him? ;)

Right? Even if I hated OP's ass I would never ever laugh at someone opening up about they're feelings for you. It's cold, rude, and pretty much the worst thing you could do in the situation.

I agree, completely. Telling him something like that at work is not the right time or the place. OP, if you ever find yourself secretly in love with someone again, ask them out for coffee, then dinner, then see where things go from there. You'll be a lot more likely to get a positive response if you've been dating the person for a while.

My thoughts exactly. I should have read the comments first before posting mine, because this is what mine says (more or less). It's also strange to me that OP jumped straight to the "So, I'm totally in love with you" stage without even dating him casually first. It's a bit creepy, actually.

I agree. And he might've laughed because it was awkward, not because he's a jerk. I would feel extremely uncomfortable if a coworker told me out of the blue while at work that he/she was in love with me. It's inappropriate and a bit creepy. Also, love, OP? I doubt it. How well do you even know this person? I would never be happy if someone I love was fired, regardless of his actions, due to my creating an awkward situation. People need to stop reaching for the top shelf for words. You couldn't have just said intetested or attracted, huh? Next time, start small and don't make your place of employment uncomfortable for yourself or others.
