End of internship - should I tell colleague I like him?

Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    I'm finishing my internship this week and while I've been there I've come to really like one of my colleagues - we didn't really work that closely together, but he's my boss' boss at the moment. We get on well when we chat (not that often) and went out for drinks a couple of times in a group and got to know each other a bit.*

    I'm really conscious that I will probably never see him again after this, but don't know whether to say anything... I have no idea if he's single or if he's at all interested. I don't know whether it's a bit of a dodgy move to say anything given the context, but I guess I'll kick myself if I don't and he was interested. I think I will end up talking myself out of it, too risky haha.*

    Guess I'm just looking for words of wisdom/advice or if anyone's been in a similar boat...! He's been all I can think about recently so had to get it off my chest somewhere...

    This could be a bit too risky considering he's your boss' boss. Won't you be looking for a positive reference from the company in future?

    I'm all for taking chances so if it feels right just do it. But i'd be considering the long-term ramifications before jumping in
