Love Q&A: His Coworker Has a Crush on Him

Q.

The Nest Q&A

I think my husband’s coworker may have a crush on him. I’ve heard her say she thinks he’s great and wishes she could meet someone like him. Should I worry?

A.

Before you start to fret, think about your husband: He is deeply in love with you, so why would he stray or even entertain the notion? He’s probably been given a nice ego boost since his coworker sees him as the ideal man, but odds are his feelings do not go beyond that. Unless you truly suspect there is something going on, it’s best not to make any accusations or suspicious comments to him. The next time she drops a compliment, reinforce how happily married you guys are. She should get the hint.
