Do you think it is inappropriate to have a work friendship with the opposite sex?
Is it ok to take a walk with someone at work who is of the opposite sex?
Is it ok to have lunch with someone at work of the opposite sex?

I have conflicting opinions on this from my co-worker’s. I feel like the minority so I am asking for your opinions.

Female friends

Do you think it is inappropriate to have a work friendship with the opposite sex?
No, at my work, there are mostly women and I have plenty of female friends.

Is it ok to take a walk with someone at work who is of the opposite sex?
My walking buddies have always been women and I walk nearly every day with one. My last walking buddy was also one of the ugliest woman at work.

Is it ok to have lunch with someone at work of the opposite sex?
There are many guys and girls at my work that have lunch together. My boss and a co-worker did laugh when a pretty woman was seen driving around with the head of the computer department. Ironically, my boss is a man and the co-worker was a woman and they were also in a car when they saw the pair.

okay, spy...gonna let you have it for the ugly comment :)

Do you think only attractive people have affairs? That being physically unattractive (and that is totally subjective, what one person finds unappealing can totally turn another on) is a safeguard to inappropriate physical or emotional intimacy? When I think about the men I’ve been attracted to before I was married (heck…even when married), most of them have not been what most would consider physically attractive. Even my celebrity crush, Liam Neeson.

I read a study once that concluded that most of the affairs men have involve women less attractive, heavier and often older than their wives. All things that go against our stereotype of a man taking off with a hot, gorgeous, young blonde… Usually the woman was kind, loving, supportive and emotionally and physically available when his wife was none of those things.

nicolasc will be out of the picture a lot. Please don't take lack of response or reciprocation personally!

Have you seen the movie

Too Beautiful For You? It’s about exactly this. The wife is very gorgeous but distant, though they did a good job of not making her a caricature. She was still someone you could empathize with. An old movie,but a good one.

I haven't, nic,

but it sounds interesting. I’ll have to search for it on netflix.

I have heard

that guys often have affairs with women that aren’t as attractive as their wives.

The point I was unsuccessfully trying to make is that I was going for a walk with a woman everyday and I had no intentions of anything other than going for a walk with her.

That’s exactly how I understood your answer to this posted question. As you just said…

I think you clearly made this point:
“My last walking buddy was also one of the ugliest woman at work.”
To clearly show that you were walking with people just cos you wanted to walk, and for no other reason.
