I'm a fresh graduate from college. And the colleague in question is still in his college, but our age is similar. The female colleague is same age as me.
I'm new in this job. Both of us(he and me) are in same department, same position, same probation period.
He has started teasing me with name of a girl from another department who resides in our own floor.
I always saw her as a best friend, but now I feel shy when I see her. She's stuck in my head. I told the person to not tease me like that in front of the girl and told him to position himself in place of girl and ask if he would like it?
He's taking it too lightly and not caring.
Should I complain to HR? Or manager? The colleague is also my best friend so I'm confused if I should complain to HR or manager?
Is there an easier way out of situations like these.
I am sorry if this is a stupid question, but I'm very impractical as I'm new to industry.
It's against company's policy to like each other in office.
