Discussion on: What should I do when I get hit on by colleagues?

That's really disappointing. I've had a very not-so-subtle instance where someone on my team (who was living with their partner at the time), decided to share that they had a huge crush on me that they couldn't get over. They kept saying they didn't want to 'freak me out' but that they needed to tell me so they could get over it. It was really uncomfortable and I didn't know how to navigate it, except point blank say that I wanted our relationship to stay strictly professional.

It sucked because a few weeks later, my supervisor said that xyz person said I was doing a great job managing a product build, and I could never take the feedback seriously because it came from that person.
