Yes, they may be old and disgust you, but on the other hand:

Re: Happy Thoughts

i have a random happy thought to share, along with some motivation free of charge. these geezers that want to inseminate you will start getting younger in direct correlation with each pound lost.

and the happy thought - greater society is recalibrating itself regarding gender and identity. which is cool, except that most people have it wrong. there actually is no such thing as man and woman, in fact we are all n-sided polygons.

have a blessed day.

I think trolling is supposed to go into spoiler tags in this thread.

Those post were light hearted and fine trolling. I had a good laugh.

I told one of the younger guys I work with about it and he got super defensive for me and told me to go to HR, so I'm kinda hoping he will just say something to the guy for me.

Re: Happy Thoughts

Happy Thoughts:
The production manager called me out during a meeting with mangagment and said I was on top of some things and was doing a great job, then my ex-boss^2/now partner chimed in and said "yeah, she's being my mentor now". It made me feel good coming from them and I appreciate it, but I felt incredibly awkward with everyone looking at me. I just dont know how to respond or actually in that spot. I said thank you,but I was acting weird.

Re: Happy Thoughts

Maybe you were acting weird, but if you just said "thanks" o/w and didn't go around hugging them, nobody noticed. Most of the time people are self-conscious in a social situation, the other people dgaf about you enough to notice anything-- they're too busy paying attention to whatever's going through their own head to care what you're doing.

MLY,

You grossly over-estimate how much other people think about you or care about any "weirdness".

Re: Happy Thoughts

MLY,

1. Directly telling the one guy that you aren't interested is good. His response was inappropriate. He's straight up telling you he's planning on disregarding your clear boundary. You should follow up by making it *clear* that you do not appreciate that, and that you find it inappropriate, and that it makes you uncomfortable. Anything (including an even semi-joking defensive response on his part) further should lead you to report him to HR.

2. With the other guy, either be direct with him, or go to HR. Your pick. Going to HR is fine.

3. You should stop hugging people at work.

4. It is wildly inappropriate for you to expect some other random younger man at work to handle this situation. It's also very unlikely he does.

Re: Happy Thoughts

Yeah, I'm bout to be real direct with these guys.
I had another old guy hitting on me at lunch today. I think he is in his 50s.
I've got to change my Facebook status back to in a relationship, this is getting rediculous.
I know I can't do it, but I wish I could hang a sign on my door that said, "If you are over 40, DO NOT ask me out"

This approach is 100% gauranteed to result in frustration and disappointment for you.

The following post is probably the only worthwhile contribution to 2+2 I'll ever make, but you really need to read and understand it, I'll link it as many times as is necessary:

Re: Happy Thoughts

M,

Why do you keep referring to the guy in his 50's as old? When you're in your 40's yourself it's not that huge of an age gap.

Did you not see my previous question or are you ignoring it?

I shall assume that you're doing the opposite of what everyone is telling you to do and pretending it didn't happen while saying here that you're going to do something about it sometime in the future. Don't bother responding unless I'm wrong.

Re: Happy Thoughts

Rapini,

MLYLT ignores the 75% of questions she doesn't like, which is part of what makes talking to her pretty frustrating most of the time?

M is free to blog about her romantic encounters free from prejudice, especially if they are fictional or with old men from work.

I had already answered your question and you missed it. I think I even quoted your original post.

You are correct. I apologize.

MLYLT is long past the sniff test for a (50 year old) male to be interested.
