My boss is flirting with me and I don’t like it!


You need to put a stop to this as soon possible. Sometimes just ignoring it can be enough. Act like you don’t hear it and refuse to rise to the bait. If that doesn’t work, be direct and show your disapproval but be tactful and gracious. You could say “I hope you dont mind me mentioning this as its making me feel uncomfortable. I know your only messing around but I really prefer to keep a strictly professional relationship at work”.


Try to avoid being alone with your boss. If you have to be, always try and keep the door open. Mention a significant other frequently whether you have one or not! Dress appropriately so you don’t give out the wrong signals. Look into your company’s sexual harassment policy and speak to HR or a employment lawyer to fully understand your rights.


Whatever you do don’t believe that your career success depends on you allowing this behaviour to continue. You got the job based on your own abilities so don’t let a flirty boss ruin your confidence.
