- I make every attempt to know/befriend the spouses of the people I work with
- I don’t spend a lot of time with the opposite sex unless it’s work related. If I am in a situation where I need to work with someone like this, I always keep the body language distant.
- I make sure my husband knows who I work with, and make attempts to let him meet them.
Tell me what you think–I’m all ears. The guy at work says that I’m a typical woman–making something out of nothing, but I tell you this–if I felt someone was inappropriately approaching my husband, I would NOT stand for it. Would not. My (future) family, and my marriage are my priority–forget about niceness.
I guess in my attempts to be diplomatic I’m not being very clear. I’m not too worried about my rules–I’m comfortable with them, and with my spouse, but I wonder what other people think the "rules" are. I see people that do things that i think aren’t OK–the intentions might be OK, but I don’t think the actions are. How would you feel if someone at work paid an unusual amount of attention to your spouse? Clearly favored them and spent a lot of time talking to them about personal issues? Would you be OK with that? Personally, I might have to put the smack down.
