In Hump Day, award-winning psychotherapist and TV host Dr. Jenn Mann answers your sexiest questions—unjudged and unfiltered.
DEAR DR. JENN,
I’m a straight, married woman, and my best friend at work is a straight, attractive man. I’d never cheat on my husband — with my “work husband” or anyone else — but my work friend and I do share intimate concerns about our romantic relationships, late-night texts, career dilemmas, and innocently flirtatious comments over post-work drinks. Where’s the line? —Work Wife
DEAR WORK WIFE,
I hate to break it — you are having an emotional affair. Yes, you can justify it by saying that you’re not sexually intimate with your friend, but the emotional intimacy that you are experiencing dilutes the connection you share with your husband.
