A legal assistant wrote to Greg Giangrande, columnist and HR executive in the media industry, about a crush on one of her firm’s partners going through a divorce.
His take on it? Get a new job and flirt outside the office. He points out on one hand, mutually consenting adults working together have the right to “do whatever they want in private.”

He adds, “If he gets divorced, and you want to start a relationship, find another job — and date like normal people with normal dating complications.”
