Top 10 Signs a Married Female Coworker Likes You (And what to do about it) By C Lucy for Making Sense of Manliness
Is she sending you signals or are you imagining things? If you’re working in an office in the 21st century you’ve probably asked yourself this question. The office setup is notorious for breeding affairs. Both men and women develop feelings for their coworkers and even enjoy a good dating experience.
However, when your married female coworker is attracted to you, it’s important to pump the brakes rather than jump into a relationship, but first; does she really like you? Do you even know how to tell if a woman likes you?
As a man, you’re probably used to making advances to women you like, you may, therefore, be oblivious of how women behave when they like you. It’s easy to mistake friendliness for attraction, but these 10 signs are a definite way of letting you know that she is interested in something more than co-working.
1. She Makes Flirtatious Comments and Jokes
Jokes and tongue slips are a window to the mind. According to Sigmund Freud, such slips represent repressed thoughts which have to find a way out. Therefore, if a married coworker is constantly joking about the two of you being together or doing intimate things, she has probably been thinking in those lines.
Her flirtatious jokes could be a reflection of her deepest fantasies and desires.
It is, however, important to pay attention to the context. If everyone else is making sexual jokes and she happens to chip in, do not jump to conclusions. She could be just trying to fit in. Flirtatious comments and jokes count as signals only if they’re extremely out of context and out of character.
2. She Favors You Over Other Coworkers
When a married coworker of the opposite sex is constantly praising your good work in front of others (even when you’ve not done much), helping you out with assignments and pulling strings for you to earn’ awards and promotions, she could be interested in something more.
This sign applies to female coworkers who are in higher positions at the office. When a person is attracted to another, they will do anything in their power to please them. Fortunately, or unfortunately, she could be having a lot of power on her hands to turn your life around at the workplace.
Think of such favors as intangible gifts which she is using to draw you closer to her. After all, it’s difficult to say no to someone who has been nothing but ind’ to you.
3. She Gets Jealous When You Get Close to Other Female Coworkers
There is no other reason as to why anyone would get jealous when you talk, laugh or spend time with other coworkers unless they’re attracted to you. Such a coworker may either be possessive or simply craving your undivided attention. Therefore, whenever you show affection to other people, she feels as if they’re aking her special place’ in your life.
