My husband & I are close friends of another couple. We are in our 30's & this couple is in their late 50's. The man will be my husband's boss sometime this summer after my husband completes some training. Here's the problem: the man keeps coming on to me. He has flat out said he wants to have an "open & sharing" relationship involving emails, texts, & phone conversations & that if I wanted, a physical relationship. I've told him that I'm not comfortable with this "sharing" & while he says he respects that, he keeps pushing. It has gotten to where I am almost scared to talk in front of him because any comment I make he will interpret in a sexual context & respond in kind. If it were just some random guy, I would tell him to shove it but my DH idealizes this man & wants to keep both a friendship & a professional relationship with him. I think the wife suspects he does this stuff, but not with me. Any advice?

I agree with the others. Tell your hubby and get away from this. This man has power and obviously isn't afraid to use it. Before you know it will be a deal where sexual favors= better position, better pay or whatever.
