So, I just read this crazy article titled “I sent cake to my babe’s workplace and she ate it with her ‘office husband’ - Man shares heartbreak story.” Basically, this guy sent his girlfriend a cake at work as a surprise, but when he asked how it was, she admitted she shared it with her “office husband.” You know, one of those work spouses that people have where there’s no romantic attraction, but they’re really close friends.
Anyway, this guy was pretty heartbroken because he felt like his girlfriend was emotionally cheating on him. The article goes on to talk about how common it is for people to have work spouses these days and how it can actually be healthy for people to have close connections at work. However, there’s a fine line between harmless friendship and emotional infidelity.
Personally, I can relate to this because I used to have a work husband. We were just really good friends, but we’d always go to lunch together and we’d text each other outside of work. And I remember feeling guilty because my actual boyfriend at the time didn’t like it. Looking back, I think it was totally harmless, but I can see how it could become a problem if one person starts catching feelings.
Overall, I think this article brings up an interesting point about how relationships have evolved in the workplace. It’s important to have strong connections with coworkers, but it’s also important to set boundaries and make sure you’re not crossing any lines. At the end of the day, communication is key.
