I am currently working as a salesperson in my company and deal with potential clients on a daily basis. I need some advice concerning a client (let's call him Bob) who's been hitting on me.
The second time I met bob at a business lunch to discuss a deal, he made a comment stating that he does not mix work with personal life. He also told me that he's been recently divorced along with other details of his love life.
Within a few hours, he texted me saying that he appreciated the personal time we spent together. The same day, around 11 PM, he texted me again telling me that "on a personal level, he would like to have dinner with me".
How do I deal with this situation ? I know that I'll be risking losing the client if I come out too harsh on him, but I don't want to get to know Bob on a personal level.
