Imagine you have two people who work together, a male and a female. The female has been in a relationship the entire time the two co-workers have known each other. The two co-workers have built a flirtatious rapport over long hours working and talking though, but it has never turned into anything more than just flirting. There's clearly been sexual tension between the two, but the male is known around the office for his, ahhh, inability to stay in a relationship or stay with one woman, so the female has never really taken him seriously. Over the course of a few weeks her and her relationship begin to disintegrate and finally it ends with a bang. She is heartbroken. At work she talks about being lonely and horny from the lack of a man. She's in a heavy rebound period.
Is it right for the male co-worker to leave a note on the female's work station telling her to meet him in the walk-in cooler, I mean the office's break room in 5 minutes, to "go over some reports" ? Then continue to meet her in the "break room" at various intervals over the course of a work shift, for ummm, lessons in male/female office relations? Would this be the male preying on the female because of her clearly weakened, heartbroken state?
I don't think so, because there has clearly always been a sexual attraction there, and if she already knew that he was a complete whore... well then none of this should have surprised her.
This, as always, has been a hypothetical question. I mean, this happened to a co-worker...I'm just blogging about his experiences.
