Would you live with your boss?

For a quick synopsis, the wife and I split up last month. I was on the road until the beginning of this week with my boss. Him and his sister, who live together, took me under their wing until the wife moves back to Louisiana. My boss stayed behind in FL when I left and I've been staying with his sister (she's 25, hot, and id totally into me). I'm so uncomfortable with the situation that I wanna go back to my place and stay there. However, I'm not gonna stay somewhere where I don't feel welcome. Just kinda venting about it. It shouldn't seem like a bad situation but it is. The end.

Edit: The boss and his sister want to take me in for a full-time roommate.

As your image consultant and accountant, I advise that you move back to your place.

As awesome as my boss is....no...I would not live with him.

Take that raise money and find yourself a nice apartment. Of course, what do I know.

You want our advice on whether or not to live with the hot, boss's sister? I'll give you my advice when you start picking up that beer tab. Yes, Canadians have been known to fly great distances for free beer.

I think he said the sister is hot - not the boss.

Bad idea. Of course we'd have to see a pic of the boss's sister to really determine if she's worth possibly getting fired over.

On the bright side, at least it's his hot sister and not his hot daughter.

Yeah, because unemployed recently-divorced guys are soooo much hotter than employed ones. Not.

W/o the hot sister, I'd say maybe for a VERY SHORT time. I actually did live with my boss (& his wife & 2 kids) for a week or so myself. It was uncomfortable, even though we were friends, and it's really hard to tell when you've outstayed your welcome.

I had a vaguely similar situation YEARS ago. I was young, about 20 or so. A lady in our group at work just got promoted to the manager of the group and lived right near the university I was about to start going to. She was kind of hot too. She seemed to like me, we got along well.

She told me one day her room mate was about to move out and she knew I was looking for a place down near the university. She asked me if I wanted to be her room mate. I thought about it...definitely seemed like a cool deal at the time.

I talked to my supervisor about it who I was great friends with. She (supervisor) was older than both of us and good friends with both of us. She said to me something to the affect of, "what the f*&^, are you an idiot?.....of course you shouldn't move in with her. She's your boss!".

Glad to I got such a clear answer on it and glad I listened to her advice.

I've lived with numerous bosses. Works out ok as long as everyone actually gets along... Work related discussions do tend to continue at home, though...

I can't believe you are asking this.

Step back, look at your morals and THEN make the proper decision.

This is an absolute no-brainer - do it! It's an opportunity for something exciting and memorable.

You should never turn down sex with a hot girl for any reason ever. Unless one or both of you is married or diseased.

Not a good enough reason to not sleep with someone...

Get a short term apt. Something like a furnished studio you could pay weekly (if is just a temporary thing). If it turns out is gonna be more permanent, a small apt would be in order. Stay away from boss's sis unless you find a new job, then it would not matter.

In short: Don't mix it, it could get ugly.
