How to tell if a co-worker is flirting with you
Married co-worker flirting can be fun, but it can also be dangerous. Some people finding themselves on the receiving end of flirting from married colleagues and don’t feel at all comfortable with it. Perhaps you suspect that a married co-worker is attracted to you but aren’t quite sure if this is the case? If so, this article is for you. In this guide, we will tell you all about the main signs that a married co-worker does have a soft spot for you.
Signs of flirting at work
If a married co-worker seems to be finding excuses just to talk to and be near you, it’s very possible they may like you. They may start asking you questions about your personal life and want to know if you have a partner. If you tell them you do have a partner, they may appear jealous. A married co-worker that is flirting with you might frequently compliment you on your appearance, and they may try to change the subject if you ask them about their family life.
Suspect a married co-worker likes you?
If a co-worker seems to be placing their left hand out of view, they may be trying to hide their wedding ring. They may give you a great deal of eye contact, and you may catch them glancing at you when they think you can’t see. They might smile when you are near them and may even buy you gifts. You may notice them ‘accidentally’ brushing against you when they walk by and might suggest going for a drink outside of work hours.
Key workplace flirting signs
Married co-workers that find you attractive might be nicer to you than they are to others. They might give you special treatment and might be kind to you even when they are being hostile to other team members. They may take their wedding ring off completely when they are near you and may look for opportunities to hug you and talk to you about their innermost feelings. They might even start telling you about problems they’ve been facing at home and say their marriage is not what they thought it would be.
Attempts at humor
Female and male co-worker flirting signs can also include obvious attempts to be witty and crack jokes when they are in your presence. They might adjust their hair or clothing when they are around you and talk about sexual things to you. It’s not uncommon for married men and women to subtly try to undermine your current relationship when they are trying to win your affections. They may continue to make dismissive comments about your relationship in the hope that you will start to question it yourself.
The risks of flirting with married co-workers
Getting into a relationship with a married man or women is never a good idea. It can cause a great deal of hurt and pain, and you could harm your reputation amongst your colleagues. If a married man or woman is flirting with you at work, think twice before accepting their advances.
