first thing is to identify sexual advances, which most of the times is mistaken as care or concern or just plain chivalry. Listen to your gut feeling. Politely refuse to entertain any sexual advances in public places if possible. Keep your seniors in loop the moment something happens.

önceki iş yerimden beni işten çıkarıp kıdem ve tazminatımı vermelerini istedim. Onlar da haksız oldukları için verdiler tabi. Şimdi yeni iş görüşmelerine başladım ama bunu yeni işverene söylemeli miyim yoksa işe devam ediyormuş gibi mi davranmalıyım hiç bilemiyorum😬 ne yapacağımı şaşırdım, beni yönlendirebilir misiniz😞

hey. I recently joined a new job and I've already got a situation to deal with. A male colleague keeps hitting on me, and wants to hangout during lunch, how do I avoid him??
Anonymous16d
Make it clear that you are not interested in a romantic or sexual relationship with your colleague. You can say something like, "I value our professional relationship and would like to keep it that way."

Politely decline his invitation by saying something like, "Thank you for the invitation, but I prefer to have lunch on my own today."

I think my boss has a crush on me. He has become extremely sweet towards me, more than he is towards anybody else. But my colleagues told me the otherwise that he hates the way In work. Whom should I believe??
Anonymous16d
Maybe he just likes you because you are a good employee, not because he has a crush on you

There is a male coworker who constantly makes unwanted advances and flirtatious comments towards me. He keeps trying to get me to go to lunch with him, despite me turning him down politely numerous times. I'm starting to feel uncomfortable and want to avoid any one-on-one situations with him. What is the best way for me to firmly shut down his advances without creating an awkward workplace environment?
I Would say whatsoever may happen just go and confront him about it, tell him how you feel uncomfortable. If he still continues then you can report it to your HR or some senior.

If you have told him no to do it and he is doing it again, you must complain to higher authorities

I have a coworker who is extremely two-faced towards me. Whenever we interact directly, she's overly nice and friendly to my face. But multiple trusted colleagues have mentioned to me that the moment I'm not around, she routinely talks badly about me and bitches about things I've done or said. This duplicitous behavior is really off-putting. I'm worried about creating unnecessary workplace drama if I call her out directly. What's the best way to approach this situation - should I have an upfront discussion or kill her with kindness in hopes she stops the petty gossiping?
I think try talking to her for sometime. if she is rude or something then ignore her
See here you have heard different things so there are no direct encounters even if you confront she can deny and you will have cold war, what you can do is have acceptance that person doesn’t belong in any of your close knit and keep it as professional as possible

Sneha here. My peers at work seem to enjoy dimming my shine, taking credit for my ideas. How do you handle such situations gracefully? @Aartichawla
AskAarti10d
dear Sneha self belief will take u up the ladder. I was also going through office politics a couple of years back. so I understand your situation if you believe that you r right, you are doing justice to your work n salary, nothing can stop you. also i suggest take therapy and talk to your loved ones who understands you.

One of my male manager’s behaved differently with me because of my conservative nature. I wasn’t dressing up and behaving as fancy as his requirements were, if you know what I mean. As a result, Im targeted in everything. I'm now fed up of this and want everything to stop. @Careertherapiet
Hi! This is a tough situation. While you are fed up, see if you can take the load of being you and wanting to be like someone else , who is fancy and things like that? It's not to copy but to imitate the characteristics of people who are like that? It's to get put of your comfort zone and see what you can do. Of course you can come being you, anytime you want, that liberty is up to you! Think about this, and get back..idea is not to feel , see how he is doing, but to adapt to the characteristics not dress to show iff etc, but to dress differently may be ? Have an image consultant to see how they can help you...look into it.For success, it may matter...Tc, Preethq

today a coworker asked me what my plans for valentine’s day were. we’re not friends, we’re not even close coworkers. how did they assume it was okay to ask me a personal questions about my dating life? im not seeing anyone at the moment, but i don’t like the idea that my entire office is in on my business. am i being over sensitive? or was i right to get a little defensive?
Anonymous20d
Honestly I feel that you are overreacting coz he just asked about your valentine plans. you could have just replied by saying I would not like to share or no plans. he was just trying to ask your plans. nothing else. I don't think that he had an intention of invading your privacy.
nanc20d
You were absolutely right to feel violated of your personal life. But even you must understand that this is the valentine's week and everybody's curious about people surrounding themselves. Maybe they even wanted to try on you 😉
