Is my friend trying to set me up with a co-worker? Or am I over thinking things?
Where I work, I'll be start training in a new position. The girl who will be training me goes by the name of Taylor. I have only spoken to this Taylor once. My friend, Bridgitte, invited me over to her and her boyfriends house for brunch on Saturday. I said "will anybody else be there?" And she said "yeah, Taylor from work will be there. She's actually the one who will be training you next week." So, it will be just me, my friend/her boyfriend, and this other girl. Is there any possibility that this is an attempt to hook us up? Or am I just paranoid?

@LTinkAspie20,
You're just paranoid until and unless you get any reason to believe this is anything but a garden variety social gathering. And right now, you have nothing to go on - so assume it's a regular social gathering and don't overthink it.

@LTinkAspie20,
I think it is wishful thinking on your part. I agree with what Jespah wrote.

Me too. Misinterpreting this could be a very quick way to lose your job.

would it be a bad thing if someone was trying to set you up with someone else?

(I think you're overthinking it - but IMNSHO paranoid is a weird word to use in this situation.)

@LTinkAspie20,
Your "friend" is trying to hook you up with your future co-worker/boss!!

I would question your "friend" about her long term plans and where you might fit in since clearly she is an evil genius bent on world domination.

Why do you ASSUME that his is a "hook up"?

Why can't it just be "brunch"?

@LTinkAspie20,
I see it as a set up. As long as this person Taylor is not your direct report or you don't report to them, have fun. However, ask yourself if this will make working together difficult. Keep yourself in check. Be professional even at their home. Watch the alcohol consumption. Wear a tin hat...just sayin. Maybe the NSA is watching too. Smile

I'll repeat:

Navigating social Male/Female interaction in the workplace is tricky for you, but you seem to be aware of that and open to suggestions.
