Karen saw this article in the Wall Street Journal last week about so-called “office spouses,” co-workers with close Platonic relationships.
It’s been years since I’ve had an office to go into every day, but I have definitely developed close friendships with some of my clients. I don’t know if it’s occurred to me to send them Valentines, however — in general, the relationships feel more familial than spouse-like.
Do you have an office spouse? Did you do anything with him or her for Valentine’s Day?
