At a works do, I didn't have a dessert.

A male colleague offers me some of his to

Ok, cool. But he tries to feed me directly with his spoon/fork. hmm

Is this weird?

I said no but only later realised that this might be a little more flirtatious /weird then I first thought.

Would only do this with family, close friends or boyfriend?

No booze involved.

I think it was his attempt at flirting with you.

I don't know what he was thinking. hmm

I'm glad it's not just me that thought this was flirty. Fuck that's awkward.

Could have been flirting or could’ve just got it wrong. I once sat next to a woman at a dinner party who cut up my meat while talkin to someone sitting to her other side. She clocked what she was doing and was mortified. Apparently she had 7 children and was on automatic pilot.

@Ohyesiam oh my gosh that made me laugh so much, thanks! 😂

No problem! It was my first ( and only)experience of a Formal at an oxford college. I felt out of my depth till then, but after that I relaxed.grin

I cannot abide people putting food in my mouth for me. Not at all.

Even hate the notion of them putting the food on a fork/ spoon for me. I will decide what goes in my mouth!

I probably wouldn't even do that to a close friend, and definitely not my hand directing the fork into their mouth. I'd maybe load up my fork and then pass the entire fork to a colleague if I was close with them.

Sounds like a weirdo.

@Ohyesiam okay that was weird! Lol.

This is why I ask if it's normal for people to do this?

I know. Maybe he was just being friendly but it did seem oddly intimate.
