My internship mentor for my grad school, who's not much older than me, is a very kind, genuine, & overall super lady, one of those rare types of people you may only meet once or twice in life. I only would have worked w/ her for a short time (a month), then we'll never see each other again, but I don't want that! I'd love to stay in touch & at least meet up with her from time to time to go to lunch, meet at the gym, go walking, etc. & hopefully have a great friendship. We have a nice rapport. She's not my boss. I'm not getting paid for this internship. She doesn't work at the grad school I'm at. She's a totally separate person from my school site. How many of you have successfully become close friends w/ someone who was somewhat your superior (or even your direct boss) & did it turn out well/is it lasting well?
