Now, friend of mine - we'll call her FOM for short - is married and has been happily with her man for the past three years. But recently a co-worker from another office has come to town for a project and they've been working closely together. Co-worker also happens to be close to FOM's age, is unmarried and pays her a lot of attention. Like takes his lunch breaks with her, gets angry when he feels that she's been walked over by her fellow officemates, and always goes to hang with her when there's a lull in work. Plus, according to FOM, he ain't too bad a looker either. But I bet he isn't Christian Bale ... le sigh.
So I'm thinking that little miss FOM is just basking in the temporary light of getting some male attention at the workplace and feels flattered. I'm thinking that since co-worker guy will be headed back to his office clear across the country soon and they will then rarely get to see or speak to each other after this project is over, there's nothing wrong in having a little something that makes a person actually want to go into the office each day. And maybe be a wee more careful with her makeup and hair.
What is a leeeetle bit questionable to me is that apparently co-worker guy has a girlfriend back at home. Which in all their conversations, he has failed to bring up to FOM. (I did get this info from a reliable source, we'll call that source Other FOM who also happens to work at the same office and does dude stuff with co-worker guy). So does this mean there's a returned office crush ...? Is there sketchiness going on?
OK, OK, short of turning this into an episode of Days of Our Lives, I honestly think FOM just has an innocent work crush that already has an expiration date. I think co-worker guy probably is just basking in his female office attention while he's away. And that's that. But this is such a shaky ground to walk on and all I can think of is be careful, girl! And dude, if you've got a girl and you're getting flirty on the road ... bad, dude, bad ...
This post is way more gossip-y than I am usually am, but since I've already spent this entire post being nosy neighbor who loves to spill other people's beans ... I'd love to know what you ladies think?
