Co-workers being flirty in the office

So I have a hard rule that I never get involved sexually or romantically with anybody I work with. Ever.

I break my “wear a condom” rule but NEVER this. The problem I’m running into is my office is overwhelmingly women. I’m also the youngest guy (26) and in good shape and all that stuff.

These women in their 30s-40s (and there are younger/older ones too but most are middle aged) ask me when I’m going to get a girlfriend at least once a week if not every other day. Every time we have a potluck or something and we’re just chatting it gets brought up. It really bothers me because there are a lot of people at these including our higher ups. Even our Director. I always respond with saying how expensive girlfriends are or how I don’t have time or if they really press me I basically admit I sleep with multiple women but don’t do anything “serious” with any of them. One of my favorites when being pressed was saying I don’t have a girlfriend but several “gal pals” and they all thought that was hilarious. They all knew exactly what I meant when I said that... Or I joke that I’m picky and girls need to send me a resume and 3 references before I consider dating.

They tried setting me up with one of the college intern girls and I shut that shit down so fast it was like an MLB fastball coming in hot. Straight up said I don’t do shit with co-workers period. The intern girls are cute and I chat with them often just because there’s nobody else really my age but I’m not making a move on them come hell or high water.

They’ll casually put a hand on my shoulder or arm and things like that too when talking to me. Some of them aren’t bad looking and I kind of get a kick out of it. Even my direct supervisor does this (and she’s probably one of the 2 hottest woman that works here so idgaf). They’ll also casually say shit like they can tell I work out and other stuff where if it was a girl at a bar I’d know it’s an IOI (which I know it is in this context too I just refuse to engage).

However, I’m not fucking around. It’s 2019 and I know how this shit works. As a man I’m always guilty. I can continue on never breaking my “rule” and still get in trouble.

I’m half tempted to go to HR and get this shit in writing. Problem is I genuinely like all my coworkers and don’t want to get anyone in trouble. I’m terrified though that I may refuse some more aggressive advance and then that person tries to get revenge or some petty shit.

I’ll be honest I try to follow the “Pence Rule” but how the fuck am I supposed to just say “sorry ladies not getting on the elevator or sitting in that office with you alone” without THAT coming off as inappropriate and potentially backfiring and getting me in trouble for “sexism” or whatever.

Idk. My career is everything to me. I’m not putting in these 50-60 hour weeks every week and working weekends for my health or enjoyment.

Just wondering if any other guys have been in similar situations and how you handled it. Like I said I really really really don’t want to go to HR because I feel like that’s opening Pandora’s Box but I also feel terrified about not having this stuff documented.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Don't dip your pen in company ink.
No-one is gonna help you with just a hand on places. You are a man, you are supposed to Man up. (not saying I agree, but this is the reality)

Don't go to HR unless you have written proof etc which probably won't happen.

Don't be 1on1 with any of them and NEVER tell them why.

[–][deleted] 7 points8 points  (12 children) | Copy

Yeah I never make any kind of advance with co-workers. I won’t even make a move on the cute girl that works in the cafeteria and she works for a 3rd party contracted catering company so we’re not even technically coworkers.

I don’t mind the physical contact, like I said I even get a kick out of it, I’m just worried about it from a covering my ass standpoint even though I don’t reciprocate at all.

I won’t go to HR unless it’s something really egregious where I feel I have to.

The biggest issue is the 1 on 1 stuff. Because of what we do a lot of sensitive information is involved so it’s completely routine for people to disappear into closed door offices or conference rooms to talk. I don’t know how to say I’m not comfortable without another man (bearing in mind that there are literally only like 3 other guys that work in my division) present without opening myself up to a potential “Sexism” shitstorm.

[–]AloofusMaximus8 points9 points  (8 children) | Copy

Well I think you're a bit worried over nothing. I ACTUALLY had work bullshit happen, so I know it's shitty. Basically there isn't much CYA as a dude (especially if you're in an at will state).

All they have to do is make the claim and you're gone regardless. Your employer likely gives more of a shit about keeping any bad PR away, than if you're really guilty.

As a dude in the west today you're already guilty.

So just keep on doing what you're doing, and don't waste any of your time/energy on worry.

Keep in contact via social media/text/whatever with the ones you DO want to fuck, then proceed once you or they are gone.

[–][deleted] 14 points15 points  (6 children) | Copy

I know I’m being a bit paranoid but I honestly thought coming in it would be the polar opposite and a ton of guys with a few women but it’s VERY “diversity” oriented and they have “women’s events” and all that kind of stuff so it’s not surprising. When it was “women’s month” or whatever they literally had guest speakers coming in every day all month to the big auditorium in the lobby and they were allowed to go down there and listen. On the clock....

Half the time I’m ready to blow my brains out just from hearing the constant stream of gossip, them making 20 minute personal calls while not on break from their desk phone, etc. Some of them blow my mind with the way thy openly talk about their husbands. Just complete disrespect. Like get a divorce if you’re that miserable not to mention how unprofessional it is to be airing your personal life dirty laundry at the office.

If it were just all guys there’d be about 5x more actual work getting done. I always just smile and nod and do my thing though.

[–]AloofusMaximus6 points7 points  (4 children) | Copy

Yeah it's like that, and today diverse means everything BUT straight white male.

Also I forget to add... Some women will flirt with you at work just for the sake of doing it. Remember women want attention, and at work they might see it as safe.

How I got myself into shit was that some girl was literally showing every sign of interest (and I'm not unsuccessful with women at all). So I gave her my number ... A few days later I got hauled into the office. It was a fucking mess (and admittedly so was I). There was also outright lies mixed in with her complaint.

What saved my ass was that she just claimed that she felt harassed and weirdly asked that I didn't lose my job (despite lying and making a huge stink over it).

Don't know the WHY of it, I just know I learned my lesson.

[–]bradyo21 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

What was the actual complaint, that you gave her your number?

If you got hauled into HR for this, either your company is fucked or she must have come up with some crazy backstory

[–]AloofusMaximus2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

My company doesn't have HR but hers does (I'm a contractor). She said she felt harassed by that, and that I'd been hitting on her several times (which I didn't do).

My boss straight up said to me "if she had said sexual harassment instead of just feeling harassed, you wouldn't have a job".

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Yeah that’s really scary. I mean you don’t even have to actually do anything wrong to get fucked.

You’re right though that a lot of it is a desire for attention.

[–]Naebany0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Why? Seems like a power trip on her part. She could have get you fired but didn't.

[–]HurricaneHugues0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Sounds like you need to find somewhere else to work. Your work environment sounds like an estrogenic nightmare. Have you been looking for other places to work?

[–]HurricaneHugues0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

"Keep in contact via social media/text/whatever with the ones you DO want to fuck"

Not even worth it.

[–]HurricaneHugues0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

"I don’t mind the physical contact, like I said I even get a kick out of it"

By not reacting you're inviting more of it

[–]VisiblePlan0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Never react. Reaction is the tool of the weak. You'll get in more shit if you make a big fucking deal over it.

A bunch of post-wall women are flirting with Chad? Shocking.

Don't fret. Them interacting with Chad is like their dad-bod hubbies interacting with the hot intern. They don't know how to handle an interaction with someone they get all tingly about and want to know about who you're fucking so they can imagine it's them.

Take it as a compliment, and stick to your guns. Don't go to HR unless one gets abnormally harrassing. And congratulations, you now know what it's like for a hot intern in an office full of middle aged men with dead bedrooms.

[–][deleted] 22 points23 points  (1 child) | Copy

Yeah it’s actually more flattering than anything which is why I say I don’t really mind what’s actually happening I just want to cover my ass. There are at least 5 or so who if I didn’t work with I’d definitely fuck because I’m cool with older women though I won’t go out of my way for them. A few of the intern girls for sure too.

These grown women are acting like high school girls and it’s honestly hilarious more than anything. Guess I was naive thinking people are actually professional and shit.

This is just my second “big boy job” post college and the last one was a bit different of an environment (much more male dominated though I got along with everyone and did well there too it was just time to make a career move) so it’s been eye opening for sure.

[–]TheRedPillMonkey23 points24 points  (0 children) | Copy

The older I get, the more "smartest teenager in the room" rings true. Men and women will always want to fuck each other. That's nature. The workplace doesn't change those rules. Professionalism just means not acting on them.

[–]Irtotallynotrobot20 points21 points  (9 children) | Copy

Don't go to HR. That department is the source of the drama, ironically.

If you have male coworkers around, put some extra effort into bonding with them. A small voice recorder on your key chain never hurts, it won't protect you in court but it's something. If you've been at your job long enough, look around for other options with a different company; never hurts to have an offer in your exit strategy. Don't connect with these women on social media, if you did change the settings so they can't see your shit; linkedin only. If you have no other option, make up having a girl you "like"; you can always introduce them to a plate you dont mind breaking.

It's primarily uppity orbiters and CEO's that get slapped with accusations in the workplace, as long as you don't make any allegiances and you tactfully reject advances you will be fine.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (3 children) | Copy

Yeah I get along well with everyone except the batty old receptionist who nobody gets along with. Even with her I still try to make the effort.

I’ve been here less than a year and already have been actively looking for other opportunities. Just to try and find something better paying tbh but I also do want those options just in case.

The other guys got me into the office fantasy football league that has guys from multiple divisions in it so I think that’s a good way to network. Also one of the older guys invited me to a BBQ he’s having at his house in a few weeks so that’s nice too. I get along well with all the other guys I think.

I do like your keychain recorder idea I’ll have to look into that. Could potentially open me up to a lot of shit if sensitive work information being discussed gets on there though.

It’s just scary because I know how quickly a false accusation could derail my entire career.

[–]Irtotallynotrobot3 points4 points  (1 child) | Copy

Nice dude. Don't worry too much, it sounds like things are going really well!

[–]Lambdal72 points3 points  (4 children) | Copy

Why won’t a recorded audio protect you?

[–]Irtotallynotrobot7 points8 points  (2 children) | Copy

Unverifiable evidence. It gets tossed out in court if you can't prove that the person talking is the defendant/plaintiff. It can also be illegal to record someone without their consent for video/audio but sometimes consent is only required by one person depending on the state and the laws can be different between either medium. It's weird.

[–]BuzzLightGear321 1 points [recovered]  (1 child) | Copy

So say their name when talking to them? That and it sounding like them should be fine. Or is video required?

[–]Irtotallynotrobot5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy

I'm with you, man. Part of it is courts just don't want to acknowledge any evidence that goes against the feminine imperative so it gets easier for attorneys to have recording evidence thrown out. Video is tough, varies between states. Having video and audio together makes it difficult to throw out which is partly why it's illegal in some places imo. it's a mess. More than anything, recordings are fantastic leverage. No one wants that shit brought public so it can help to settle outside of court.

[–]bloody_condoms12 points13 points  (2 children) | Copy

I wish at least 1/2 of everyone on trp took the time to be as articulate as you.

As to your situation, and I really do hate saying this, you need to stop being so desirable to them. If it takes putting on a beta front and becoming less ideal and more average in your frame and presence, do it. It’s not like you should even consider ANY of them as an option. Best way to slip out of the noose hanging you is to find slack. Regardless, it’s not like the workplace is a place to practice or gain experience with women.

With that being said, keep up the trp mindset and lifestyle everywhere else. Do NOT stop working out, eating healthy, focusing on intellectual advancement... etc.

Best of luck!

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (0 children) | Copy

I’ve actually kind of tried this before several times. Like retreating into my cubicle basically but then I get a parade of people asking me “what’s wrong/why are you being so quiet” because it’s such a striking difference. That’s when my supervisor comes over and starts asking if I’m feeling okay and touching me on the shoulder while I’m sitting at my desk and saying I can go home if I need to. Lol.

After my first few months I actually toned down the amount of work I was doing because I realized I could get away with it because they’re willing to bend over backwards for me. I also don’t want to piss anybody off by being the workaholic making people look bad. My first two months I literally begged my bosses for a company laptop so I could do extra work at home and then quickly realized it’s unnecessary as fuck. It’s funny honestly.

I’ve been here less than a year but I’m already planning on trying to move on for a better position somewhere within the next 6-18 months anyway so I think I’ll just ride it out and continue to be careful.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Ha! I’ve done this. I think a lot here are “the office hot guy”. Problem is a lot of behavior that puts on a beta front can also make you less desirable in terms of promotions (ex: start dressing worse/lamer, being not as fun to be around, etc)

[–]SemiLoquacious24 points25 points  (6 children) | Copy

I have a simple solution: tell them you have a girlfriend the very first time they ask, right at the beginning of your employment. And there's a few reasons this should be a rule to live by.

To both men and women, "dating" is one of the most important things to talk about. Its human nature to be interested in who is hitched with who. Dating is a good icebreaker for talking to someone you don't know well.

Another advantage to lying about dating is, you can use dating as filler details your life when you talk to someone that is judgemental. For example, someone asks what you plan to do for the weekend and the answer is, "clean my attic, work on my typing speed, and laundry." More realistically, the answer could be "sleep" or "binge Game of Thrones." Those are boring answers. Say, "going on a date to the park." That's a satisfactory answer. Even if you'll be away for a week, saying you'll be on one 2-hour date will make others see you as someone with a life, and this gives you a strong frame.

It is also good with a job interview. The interviewer asks what you do on your free time, say, "hang out with my girlfriend and sometimes I go swimming." Employers want to hear you're dating, it makes you seen well adjusted.

Most people, men and women, will judge you for being single. Most people, especially women, think being single is hell and you must be crazy if you willingly remain single and enjoy it.

But if you tell them you're dating now, they'll press for as many details as possible. They'll think, "i knew you when you were single, what does this girl have that i don't?" You should had claimed to be dating on day one, because this would mean less questions. Anyway, it's still advantageous at this point to claim you have a gf.

Also, if you're single and talk to a female coworker, they'll assume you're hitting on them and yes, might accuse you of sexual harassment for being in an elevator with them. So definitely claim you're dating someone.

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (1 child) | Copy

That’s honestly great advice and makes a lot of sense. I’ll have to do that at my next position.

[–]SemiLoquacious3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

start saying you're dating now

Just for lulz, time it so you can steal the spotlight from someone else. Say Karen's daughter is getting married and you drop you have a gf. All attention will be on you. Who cares Karen's daughter got married, Chad has a gf, that way more important.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Something I run into is it’s realllly hard to be single when people ask and not come across as either a loser or a player, either one can hurt professionally.

Usually people will know which camp you’re in just by looking at you. I’ve gotten grief at work for rotating women and I don’t even tell them about my dating life, all just assumed

[–]SalporinRP1 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy

I always see this advice in this thread and it can backfire od. Imagine if you tell your whole office you're dating a girl and then one night you're out at the bars and you game/fuck a mutual acquaintance. Then it will spread like wildfire that you're a scumbag cheater.

You don't need to lie about your relationship status. Just don't put yourself into a situation where you can get me-too'd.

[–]SemiLoquacious0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

It's unlikely though.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I think lying about a gf when you don’t have one is just dumb. While there’s a low chance it’s ever exposed - if people find out you’re lying you’ll look like the biggest fucking loser on the planet. And it’s very possible, maybe you let it slip in convo because you forgot. Maybe someone at work and you have a mutual close friend. Maybe someone stalks your social media.

It can really set you up to look pathetic

[–]Pidjesus7 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy

They love flirting but there’s less then a 0.1% chance things will go further, don’t get it twisted

[–]User-31f64a4e8 points9 points  (3 children) | Copy

I always respond with saying how expensive girlfriends

Don't go there. Just hint you have romantic connections outside of work, but that you prefer not to talk about your private life in the office.

So I have a hard rule that I never get involved sexually or romantically with anybody I work with. Ever.

Good. Now you need to add another rule: don't buck the narrative while at work.

Your present MGTOW-sounding approach will eventually draw flak from some feminist, SJW or jealous woman. Remember, hell hath no fury like a woman scorned! Much better to hint at loyalty to some relationship somewhere else.

[–][deleted] 5 points6 points  (2 children) | Copy

You raise good points. I’ll have to keep it in mind for when I move on to a new job and am starting fresh again.

[–]User-31f64a4e-1 points0 points  (1 child) | Copy

Well, it's never too late to stop a practice which might trigger backlash. Don't wait until you actually get attacked ...

I take your point about not having a clean slate at your current place of employment.
Consider though, it is a small world with each industry is smaller still. If you start keep your thoughts on the down-low now, then anyone who joins your current company going forward won't have experience of you voicing politically incorrect thoughts. The memory may also fade with current co-workers as well. The fewer people at your current gig who know you are guilty of wrong-think, the fewer who can move on and block your employment somewhere else.

[–]failingtheturingtest7 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy

You're engaging them. Stop it.

They want drama. That is all. They want to hear about drama, see drama, talk about drama, cause drama, or be drama. They are bored in their own shit, and yours might be exciting. So they quiz you.

The moment you admit to having any kind of romantic/sexual life, it's fair game to push for more info. You're playing into the attention with shit like "I have several gal-pals" and you don't want to admit it. You're leaving little bits of bait to keep them biting. Be honest with yourself and cut that shit out!

My work see's me engage with large external organisations as well as a lot of community engagement. At most events, my co-workers see a sheila or two offer me their number. They quiz, I give them nothing but "she was nice, wasn't she". I never get asked if I contacted them anymore, because I've never answered that question.

When my co-workers (with whom I get along quite well and we all know a lot about our personal lives) occasionally ask about my dating life, I give them nothing. They regularly suggest x new girl, or introducing me to their friend, or whatever. The answer remains the same "I don't think I'm the right person for them, I've got a lot going on right now".

Stop baiting them by giving them little intriguing pieces. Be honest with yourself.

[–]bradyo210 points11 points  (6 children) | Copy

I can’t speak for everyone and you can accuse me of being NAXALT if you want, but I feel like you’re overreacting a little here.

There’s nothing wrong with a bit of back and forth at work, doesn’t mean you have to go all autie and ensure you’re never alone in a room with a woman.

Personally, I ignore the “don’t shit where you eat” rule, as I know my social skills are good enough to talk my way out of anything that would come up. I’ve never had so much as even a minor complaint made against me (and nor is there any reason to complain). As long as you stick within the rules of the company, most of the time you should have nothing to worry about. I’m not saying that these things don’t happen necessarily, just that they’re far less prevalent than this sub would have you believe.

Unless they’re giving off absolute psycho vibes, I’d carry on full steam ahead. Or at least loosen up a bit. They’re basically offering you free pussy on a plate here.

[–]Rkingpin9 points10 points  (5 children) | Copy

Honestly, dont shit where you eat is for the guys lacking social skills to lubricate any awkwardness that comes after doing the deed then seeing her at work.

As long as you're sure she isnt BPD or psycho it really isnt that serious to fuck a co worker. It happens all the time

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (2 children) | Copy

Getting involved like that with women at work seems to be high risk low reward to me.

I’m definitely an extrovert but I’m not going to rely on my social skills and charm to save me from career suicide when the entire issue can be avoided just by not engaging.

It’s not like I struggle with meeting women outside work either so it’s a completely unnecessary risk to take.

[–]sehns6 points7 points  (1 child) | Copy

Yep, if you're at your peak theres absolutely no reason to shit where you eat. It's for people without a lot of options. You're doing everything right OP. Amused mastery, keep them at arms length and be a professional. You'll go far mate keep up the good work.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Thank you for saying this. Shitting where you eat just reeks lack of abundance

[–]bradyo21 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

For sure. Use it as an excuse to reject ugly co-workers for sure, but don’t actually live it as a tenet of your life

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Yes and no. This has nothing to do about harassment claims and more to do with running into gossip, issues involving advancement, conflict of interest, and yes emotional drama

If you’re in a big company and it’s different department or floor then by all means. But if it’s same team? That’s spelling disaster mate

[–]Oily13091 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I'm in the same situation man. Feels good, but be careful. Girls talk about everything.

Just a one did when she saw me in my muscle shirt after working out after work. We bumped into each other and the next day it was no. 1 topic, even days after they talk about it.

[–]Brushyourteethm81 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I wouldn't worry - I'm one of 3 men working with about 25 women. Just smile, be friendly, and keep busy. Let them guess what you get upto.

Essentially give them the vibe that they're completely friend zoned but you're too busy to get close with any of them and so you're just that great guy who they see cracking on each day. Just smile and change the subject.

[–]Thor-Loki-10 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

What's helping you is your pattern of previous behavior.

Some bitch decides to fuck you because you don't give her any attention, you can point to the year-long history you have of never doing anything with anyone.

I'd start saying things in company of everyone--low key, doesn't have to be accusatory/over the top--but, some "Me too means I'm never going to be alone with the door closed". A few of these will paint your intentions to everybody. And then make it obvious to open the door, etc; in case you're actually in that situation. When the shit hits the fan, you'll have history. It may not be enough, but it's probably the best you can do.

Say you had a traumatic experience and can't get close to women you respect (with a straight face, you fuck).

And then don't let them touch you. Fuck your "I don't mind the contact".....Yes, you fucking do. Some new woman getting comfortable with you can turn on a fucking dime. This is probably your biggest deficiency.

Other than that, keep doing you and look to switch jobs every two years.

"Every time we have a potluck or something and we’re just chatting"

Why are you even there? Make up an excuse to not be there. Don't socialize beyond work formalities. You go to a potluck and shit will get personal. They will pry deep into ur personal life and try to get too familiar. Keep coworkers at a respectable distance. The only thing they should really know about you is your work ethic and how well you treat others. They shouldn't even know your last name really.

If you have to do anything one on one that concerns you, then record the entire conversation on your cellphone.

now learn from all the hot girls that have to dodge advances all the time but somehow manage to be on everyone's good sides

This is actually one of the scenarios where you need to lie. Say you have a girlfriend and use a picture of one of your former plates if anyone asks.

Keep documentation. But find a new job asap.

The best advice I can give you is to wear a hidden cam all the fucking time around the office.

Act like you've come out of the closet. Explains the lack of female partners, and then the pity Olympics is on your side.

You dont have to prove it, and you dont have to justify it these days. Who cares of their opinions on your personal life, you wont engage them anyway.

Seems like a win win, unless your too prideful or you ego prevents the facade.

Dude you’re so close lmao

You got it

But you gotta stop caring so much lol

You’ll find a new job, if you don’t think you will then you need to apply red pill to your job, you should put yourself in a place of abundance with everything. Honestly, fuck them, if you want to, what’s the worst that comes of it?

“Yeah we slept together, it’s not against company rules so.”

Just take it how you take everything else

Be precautionary, watch your back, take the condom (sucks but you already know)

Really what’s the worst that could happen, if they try to fire you over you sleeping with a coworker when it’s not illegal, then you’ll just get some court room experience suing them.

Give the women what they want lol

Obviously within bounds but it wouldn’t be the end of the world mate.

This “rule” is stupid. I mean sure if you want to tell the truth all the time for whatever reason then it could get messy. But if you lie and manipulate you can have a puppet/fuck doll at work.

[–]Joeboard2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

Depends. Are you in a dead end job or career? I consistently flirt with our interns here because they are here for a few months, then gone.

[–]CasualtyOfHedonism0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Statistically if you switch jobs every two years you’ll have the highest income. You shouldn’t have onitis for a job. You also shouldn’t let your boss decide who you fuck.



You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
