HomeProfessional Relationship QuestionsIs it wrong to get close to your boss?
Roy Murray asked 5 months ago
I've been working at my current job for about six months now and I've developed a really good relationship with my boss. We're friends outside of work and we text each other all the time. I know some people think it's wrong to get too close to your boss, but I don't see anything wrong with it. What do you think?

This is actually a good question! Well, it depends on your definition of "close." If you're getting too personal with your boss and sharing things that you wouldn't normally share with a coworker, then that could be considered inappropriate. However, if you're simply building a good rapport and enjoying a friendly relationship, then there's nothing wrong with that. Ultimately, it's up to you to decide what you're comfortable with. But if you do choose to get close to your boss, just be aware of the possible implications and make sure that you're still maintaining a professional relationship.
