HUSBANDS NEEDS TO HELP OUT MORE SAYS NENE
TOO MUCH INFO
QI’d like to be closer to my workmates but they always overshare their personal lives, discussing everything from their relationships to their medical issues. I don’t want to be on the outer, but I’d like to keep my private life to myself. Is there a way to stay friendly without divulging?
Kate, via email.
ADo not feel obliged to volunteer details of your private life. Stay neutral. Talk about the football, Game Of Thrones, the cost of power bills, supermarket specials of the week. Stick to general interest topics – no need to divulge personal information. Easy to stay friendly without baring your soul.
