wondering if anyone here has good ideas on how to maintain boundaries, both real and perceived, with a mentor of the opposite sex. we spend a lot of time together in meetings, sometimes just the two us, and sometimes outside of the office over drinks, etc.
I enjoy those sessions and get lot of inspiration/good career advice out of them, but sometimes I worry if it’s too easy to send the wrong signals (to others or to each other) when we spend hours together at a time. of course, I don’t want to hold my career back either. am i overthinking?
advice would be appreciated
Shift to group mentoring?
Keep alcohol out of it.
