some of your colleagues are thinking maybe there is something going on between the two of you but there is really none. What would you do? Would you avoid the person? Would do anything to avoid this situation or just ignore it knowing that there is nothing going on between the two of you? Just Curious, SFC

I would tell them that there is nothing going on and to mind their own business, it's my personal life. The end.

it would depend on many things, if he did it to others, or if I was singled out, and just how friendly friendly was, flirting with words, I might not mind but if he grabbed me in a corner and planted a kiss on me no way!

Hi If there is nothing going on who cares what others say, they are going to believe that something is anyway and if you start avoiding the person they will put it down to the fact the the assumed affair is over so you will still get talked about. If you like this persons company and it is innocent there is no reason not to talk to them. Ellie :D

I definitely wouldn't care what everybody else was thinking. But it's very important that you and this person be on the same page of knowing that nothing is going on between the two of you. I would make sure that I verbally express this in a very serious (not rude) manner.

If the person was friendly to the point that it was making me uncomfortable I would tell them to back of and leave me alone. If the person was friendly like a friend and it was just gossip, I'd file a complaint to the office, letting the human resources department know what kind of abuse I was geting rom my co-workers.
