We’re following up with Beat listeners to see how they made out after they sent in their questions to us – and you – for help. Every Friday, it’s a Follow-Up Friday on the Beat Breakfast Panel.
I have a coworker that wears pants that are a bit too fitted. They leave absolutely nothing to the imagination if you know what I mean.
It’s kind of uncomfortable to even chat with him. I know other coworkers notice and talk behind his back.
He is nice guy. Do I say something? Can I even say anything? How would I even start the conversation without him wondering why I’m noticing his package?
Omg, terrible I know. But it’s difficult not to notice. Trust me.
Please help me with this awkwardness. -Pant problems, Cambridge
Where Are They Now?
Dear Beat Breakfast Panel,
I’m actually shocked at the responses. I’m trying to help this guy out and feel terrible that others are talking about him and everyone assumes I can’t stop staring at his crotch.
I’m sure anyone who is in the situation would feel uncomfortable in a conversation with him. It’s just awkward and I don’t care what anyone says.
I still can’t bring myself to tell my coworker who is wearing the tight pants what everyone is saying. So instead, I’ve decided to ask my other coworkers to stop talking about him. I’ve had enough of all the chatter. It’s annoying. I’ll just need to work up the nerve to approach them.
And as for the tight pants … I guess I’ll have to make sure I don’t glance down when I’m talking to him or he may get other ideas. -Pant problems, Cambridge
My mom and dad divorced about 10 years ago and while my dad has remarried, my mom has enjoyed dating and being single. She didn’t want the divorce but after the pain of the end of her marriage she embraced her new found freedom and embraced it a few times with some younger men, much younger men – men my age. I’m in my early 30’s and she’s in her early 50’s and doesn’t look her age.
One of those younger men just happens to be a good friend of one of the people I’m close with at work. There’s some chemistry between us the few times we’ve met and while nothing has happened, I’m intrigued and I know he is too, but I can’t help but think it would be weird and awkward to date him after my mom dated him. Oh, he doesn’t know that I know he dated my mom. We never met while they were dating, but my mom showed me some pictures of him. Do I just forget about him, or see where it goes? Should I tell my mom? And when should I tell him?
Where Are They Now?
Wow a real mixed bag of reactions on the Beat Breakfast Panel Facebook page and it sounds like you and Laura are a no, but I thought about this figure you only live once so I decided to go out with him to see if there was any real possibility there and we had an amazing time. We’ve been seeing each other quite a bit since then and last night I told him about my mom. He told me he knew and it didn’t bother him. I was relieved but didn’t ask for any details. As for my mom, well, I haven’t said anything to her yet, but we are seeing each other this weekend and I’m going to let her know. I’m nervous of her reaction, but at the same time, I’m really enjoying myself and I’m happy so let the chips fall where they may! Thanks!
