Hello, I was just passing by when I saw your page. This really isn't a relationship question but it has to do with relationships, in one way or another. Hopefully you can give me advice. I have an important question. At work my boss says things like, "Hello gorgeous/sexy" he also says things like "What a body you've got!" A few times while I was in his office he came over to me and kept touching my legs and rubbing my neck. I told him to stop and he just smirked and walked away. Once at a business meeting he kept playing footsy with me under the table and I couldn't say anything. He's 38 and handsome and all but I don't want all this. I have a boyfriend and I want to tell him but if I do then he'll, most likely, want to beat up my boss. I really love my job and my boss is sweet when he's not touching me. Is this sexual harassment? What could happen to me if I don't do something? What do you think I should do?
