Do you ever wonder that your sister-in-law might like you a little too much?

Let me set the scene... A couple of weeks ago, I saw my sister-in-law. My wife (her sister) said that she looked nice and I replies that I agreed. Then jokingly I said that I have never been more attracted to her. Well apparenly she must have taken it the wrong way because we say here again yesterday. And you would not believe what she proposed to me. I think that she may have taken my joke the wrong way... what should I do?

Say : " You're ugly, and I don't like you. Go cook me some dinner, woman..! ". Now THAT should scare her away. Well, you could just be pretty darn mean to her, and give her a nickname like : " Get over here, fatty..!! " Or.. "What are you doing by my TV, Bugs Bunny face..!!" Or "You look like Michael Jackson...!!"

This whole thing seems fishy to me. First of all I would say that from my experience with you ... you rarely joke. You are quite serious on almost every level and rarely play with people's minds. That being said, I wonder if your sister-in-law thought that you were being serious? Have you ever said things to her before about being attracted to her? If not, then perhaps she thinks that you are being serious. Now this thing that she proposed to you... what was it? Right now all we know is that you didn't approve. I mean perhaps she offered to buy you a cup of coffee or maybe it was something quite brazen? Did she say it to you in a seductive manner? Was the offer exclusive to you ... or did she, say, offer to buy all of her friends a cup coffee and since you were grouped into the invitation you took it to mean more then it was intended? I think that before we can truly give you advice we need more information.

Trust me she did not offer to buy me a cup of coffee... and if she is going to do to everyone in a group like you said... There are over 90 people that she will be doing this too... She is going to be really tired... LOL

90 people she was going to do this too? Well, she sounds like she gets around. I think I would tell her that she needs to find a new hobby!

Are you sure that she is not joking right back? And when you say that "she proposed to me"...you are speaking of your sister-n-law. Right? Is the sister-n-law married? Was your wife there when the proposal was said? This could be a few things. It could be her teasing/playing back. It could be that she is testing your commitment to her sister...a protection thing to see if you would be faithful to her sister. OR...she is serious. I would make it clear to her that when you made your comment about being attracted to her, you were only kidding. I would then make it clear to her that you would never be unfaithful to your wife. If it is a test, then you passed. (Sick as it may seem, not all people sees things the same.) If she was joking, then she will quickly inform you of this. OR...if she was serious, she will back off. I would hate for you to say something to your wife because it could really cause problems. She might not believe you or she will hate her sister. I can't say I know how your wife would react because I do not know her. She might even say that her sister was kidding. If you feel that this is something you need to address with your wife, then do so. But tread that water very carefully! Because on some level, if you do not tell your wife, there is now a secret being kept. This is a really hard situation medooley. But I would surely make it clear to the sister-n-law that there is no proposition that is appropriate and you do not want to be propositioned again!

I of course told my wife and she is certian that she was joking. Looking back at it, she might have been, but there was a certian twinkle in her eye when she said it... I just don't know...
