OK..have a bit of a dilemma...been job hunting for some time..and I got an acceptance through for one..which I acknowledged. They sent me through more info on the process and who i will be interviewed by...and it turns out one of them was my sympathy date from the beginning of this year!he was quite sweet and chatty, but I was steering clear of anything that led him on..if anything I told him outright I wasn't interested in dating him!
He was a guy from pof, who contacted me and was being quite persistent, but I told him outright he wasn't my type as he was far too similar to my ex in look and ethnic background ( after my 20 relationship with someone from the middle east, that ended up being abusive, neither I or my parents would cope with going down that route again! My parents would have probably cut me off if I dated anyone that was not white British this time!!)
But he was persistent, and even though he knew the score that I wasn't interested, we kept in touch on pof, as a sort of mutual support , checking in to see if we had any luck with any dates/ etc he had invited me out earlier this year( before my current partner) for a meal...just so we could have a meal as friends ( not a date..just friends..which was made crystal clear to him)
We had our meet up..and even though he was pleasant enough in real life..again I said it wasn't ever going to be a case of moving on to dating..just friends.
But he did try his luck out when we got back to the cars, and went in for a snog.. I was somewhat caught off guard, and went with the flow a bit...but still told him that it didn't change anything.. We would not be able to go further. Andi did not want to pursue a relationship with him.
We left our separate ways..and he continued to be a chatty contact afterwards, and he kept up for a few months the check in to see how I was and if I had found anyone yet..etc
This eventually dropped off, but he also found me in Facebook..and somehow got added( not sure how that happened..might have been a mistake.. But he knows my full RL name)
Now this guy has barely got in touch..and my pof, account has been closed for 6 months as soon as I found my current partner on there( oh the joy I have in that!!)
NOW add this issue that he is going to be one of my interviewers for this good job( I had no idea he worked there, and I have not really had that much contact in 6 months)
My partner knows I know him...as I told him last night when the penny dropped that the interviewers name sounded familiar. Despite how weird a coincidence, he seems fine with it..as he said it must happen occasionally when you end up working in the same place as an ex etc.. So he has been very supportive of this bizzare coincidence.
But...what do I do about the actual interview?!!?!
Do I need to ring their office and declare I know the interviewer, and ask to see another?
Should I ping him privately on Facebook and double check it is him working there, and tell him I am in line to interview for a job where he could be my interview er?
If so do we keep stoom about it and see if he might swing the job in my favour?
We did still leave on good terms earlier this year... But I am really in a quandary.
He knows I found someone...and as far as he knows that is as far as it goes as he really hasn't been in touch for many months, and I haven't really been face booking..
What on earth should I do here?!??😮😛
