What I Thought a Co-worker Meant When She Said “I Hope Things Don’t Get Weird” After We Had Sex, and What She Really Meant, It Turns Out.
1. I hope that we are able to maintain our professionalism in light of the inevitable awkwardness of the situation so that if our relationship doesn’t work out we will at least remain good friends.
2. I hope that we never make eye contact again, and that if we see each other outside the office we act like we’ve never met.
