Q&A: A Flirtatious Co-Worker

Q: A co-worker is flirting with me. I’m married, but I don’t want to jeopardize my job. How do I deal with this?

Gary: Draw back, and if they continue to press, verbally express to them that you are happily married and would do nothing to destroy that. If the person’s not gone too far, then you may not want to say something of that nature. However, you still must ignore their flirting and spend as little time as possible with that person. Definitely don’t eat with them. And again, if the person continues to go further, verbally expressing your commitment to your marriage should end the flirting.
