Your assuming she knew that he had slept with her housemate beforehand but she probably only found out afterwords. Plus it was months ago anyway

Honestly I don't know why it would be a YDI. If OP was into her boss and the boss wasn't in a relationship, where is OP wrong? I'm honestly just asking since I can't even play devil's advocate here.

#55 it's insanely unprofessional, for starters. most companies discourage romantic relationships between bosses and their subordinates, because it adds bias and favoritism to the situation. And if it's against company policy (which it is in pretty much any industry), you can be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination.

Because they are both adults and attracted to each other? The real question (to me) is how her deputy manager could have slept with her housemate without her knowing it...

1. Relatives 2. Coworkers, even if it's not against company policy it would still make things awkward 3. Legality 4. Sexual harassment (assuming you went up to everyone you thought was hot and asked them for sex) 5. Cheating 6. Friends being hurt 7. Roommates ...Need I go on?

if acting on attraction means sleeping with your manager and consequently losing your job, I think most people would agree that acting on attraction might not be that great of an idea

I don't doubt that, but if anybody else finds out—say, for example, an insane jealous housemate—both the OP and their boss might be looking for new jobs.
