I was a friend to someone in another department and started to talk outside of work.

Though we were both married to other people I got the wrong impression that she wanted more than friendship.

I told her I found her attractive and she flipped.

She went straight to thE HR department.

We stopped communicating altogether and things were very uncomfortable for the rest of my time in the same location.

It got worse when a book I wrote that featured her as the main character got out.

I was branded as a creep although it was not intended that way. Please forgive me all that I have upset by this event.
