Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about a flirting boss and a subordinate to likes it while both are married; I am upset that he is flirting yet not doing anything about it.
I recently started to have feelings for my boss. It all started when I noticed that he looked for excuses to touch me ( fixing my clothes, removing something ..etc), he is also in my personal space when we have meetings and bumps legs when we are sitting next to each other. I tried to tell myself that he is just being friendly as we are both married and he recently invited me and other peers for dinner at his house. However, recently I claimed to have back pains and he said he would have offered me a massage if he was not sore himself, I felt this was inappropriate but realized that I am falling for him. I am upset that he is flirting yet not doing anything about it, I never gave him a clue of how I felt but I was always receptive. I need to get out of this situation as I can’t stop thinking about it, why do men flirt when there is no intention of pursing of the woman?
