how would you react to advances made by younger men in your office even if they know you're already married?

hi there donsky. well he knows i am married and his married too. it really spells trouble so i have no intentions of entertaining them. besides i love my husband more than anything else but i can't deny the fact that somehow i'm enjoying the attention i get. LOL!

lol...I think its just normal that you feel that way. I would feel the same thing, but of course, I wouldn't pay attention to him as well.

My reaction will be mixed..depending on the level of advance.If it's just an infatuation then, I will be flattered however if the person gets serious then has to be handled in a sterner manner.There is no harm or moral issue in casual flirting as long as we know our boundaries. This will only add little zing to the boring daily routine in life....

he seems like he's just infatuated and I promise it's just casual flirting. LOL!

If it is a healthy one, just a flirtish kind and for fun I wouldn't mind but if its serious, insinuated and slyish I would definitely be on guard. I would try to show my annoyance or better still ignore it all. Many times meddling takes us to troubles.

i don't think it's serious and i don't mind flirting back for the fun of it but really I just think of him like my little brother. I mean way back my single days, I haven't really entertained younger men more so now that I'm married.

Hmm...on the inside I would be flattered. But on the outside I would definitely have to discourage such behavior, especially since I'm married AND its in the work place.

hi bbaychic. nice to hear from you. yeah it's flattering in a way, the fact that you'd realize that you could still get the attention of some men even if you're married but i'm never encouraging it because it BIG TROUBLE.

I'd take it as a compliment but I won't take them seriously.
