Q: I caught my boss checking me out on a dating website? I'm not sure if I should be excited or disturbed ...

A: Of course your boss is on a dating site. So are you and 40 million other singles, but it does feel like a creepy boundary issue, doesn’t it.  Chances are your boss was scrolling through hundreds of profiles photos in your geographic area and your familiar face popped up on the computer screen, so it was natural to take a peek at your profile.

So many sites allow you to see who has viewed your profile, so this was bound to happen. Before you start comparing bad dates with your superior, my best advice is to ignore it. Then take matters into your own hands and block your boss from viewing your profile. I call it digital housekeeping. This way he or she won’t appear in your search and you won’t appear in theirs.

Both of you now know you’re on the same dating site. Let’s just hope that you aren’t dating the same guy, because that would be uncomfortable if your boss was the one who was getting jilted. If your boss happens to mention viewing your profile, don’t have a meltdown. Just say, you’re single and dating and can’t think of a better way to meet someone who you’re not working with than joining an online dating site.

At some point, you’ll meet an amazing guy and will be taking your profile down anyway.
