A lot of you gals also made comments re: honesty to your spouse and that got me thinking about what would I do if that situation was happening to me. Would I tell my BF? Because I know if he was spending a ton of time with a young pretty female co-worker of his and thought highly of her, I would be internally steaming a bit under the collar, even though I trust BF implicitly. Yep, jealousy, ugly head, that whole bit - though I'd be too proud to admit the insecurity!
What would he think if I came home raving about a male co-worker and telling him that we'd be spending a lot of time together? This Lisa would probably totally (but innocently) be caveating it with multiple repeats about how a whole bunch of us would be working together, not mentioning anything about age or looks, probably cracking a joke or two at co-worker's expense and downplaying any inch of potential inclination that I favor said co-worker. Because even if BF has nothing to worry about which he never ever would - I wouldn't want to give him anything to worry about!
I mentioned this in the comments, but I had a male co-worker who wasn't "allowed" to be out with female co-workers. And when he brought his wife to work events, she rarely even spoke to the girls in the group and spent the evening almost possessively by her man's side. Now it totally is not my place to even try to understand their relationship dynamics, but did that keep co-worker from going out to lunch when there were gals in the group? Nopers. Did he tell the wife that? Nopers.
So slippety-slippery-slope - would those situations be considered lying or just conveniently not providing irrelevant information?
And bigger question: are there certain situations that you think is appropriate to keep from your significant other? Are there innocent enough items that you don't tell the hubby or boyfriend becaus you think it'll cause unnecessary reaction?
