MY BOSS WANTS MY BOYFRIEND

DRUM - - Advice -

I think my boss might be after my boyfriend. They met at a work function where our part­ners were in­vited along and they got on very well.

They have met a cou­ple of times since then as well and she seems to flirt with him.

I’ve asked my boyfriend and he jokes and says it’s be­cause he’s such a great guy but it makes me very un­com­fort­able. It makes me feel bad at work and some­times I doubt my boyfriend as well, even though he’s done noth­ing wrong.

I want to con­front my boss but I’m scared it will cause prob­lems.

Al­ways listen to your instinct. That lit­tle voice in­side you that’s left you feel­ing un­cer­tain and talks to what your sixth sense is feel­ing should never be ig­nored.

The fact that you’re un­com­fort­able about it means it can’t just be dis­missed. In­stead of con­fronting your boss about this, you and your part­ner should talk about it.

You need to ex­plain to him clearly what it is that gives you this un­easy feel­ing.

Both of you need to be calm and ra­tio­nal when you dis­cuss this and come up with so­lu­tions for deal­ing with it.

Go slow and han­dle the dis­cus­sion with cau­tion so it doesn’t es­ca­late and cause un­nec­es­sary con­flict in your re­la­tion­ship.
