I respond to my ex colleague’s daily good night texts. Am I unintentionally dating this guy? My friends say I am even though he’s married and twice my age. I’m 27 and he’s in his early 50s.
I left my previous job 6 months ago and my favorite ex colleague (who’s in senior management of a different dept) kept in touch with me. I’m pretty sure he does this with many colleagues.
The one thing he started doing after he left was send me “good night” texts. He never did it when I worked at the firm, and I doubt he sends that to his male coworkers.
But I always thought he just sent that to a bunch of people in his life.
I confronted him about the good night texts and he dodged my question by saying that colleagues had mixed feelings about the daily MORNING digest emails he sends out to a few hundred people everyday. When I left the company, he added my personal email to the distribution list so that I still get his daily morning email.
Am I in the wrong for responding to his daily good night texts?
He’s married. I like him because he’s always been supportive. He has said some alarming things over the phone such as “if we were married/engaged, etc”.
He has never mentioned his wife to me, which is odd because he talks about everyone else in his family (dogs, cats, daughter, extended family, etc) – I’ve only heard of her through other colleague.
My friends think I’m helping him cheat on his wife by responding to daily good night texts. He hasn’t missed a day in 5 months.
