My DH has a coworker who is setting off alarm bells in my head. She is close in age to my DH and me. Recently he told me she'd confided in him about a nasty breakup with her longtime boyfriend, and he told me she hadn't told anyone else in the business - just him. Earlier this week, I was in the office and saw them interacting. She was blatantly flirtatious with my husband (who seemed completely oblivious).
He isn't doing anything wrong and doesn't even seem to be aware of her behavior, but it makes me very uncomfortable. Ideally I'd like him not to be around her any more, but that's not really plausible. I don't want him to quit his job, particularly in this economy.
How would you handle this? I don't want to make him feel that I'm accusing him of doing anything wrong, but I don't want him around her, either. How would you bring up your concerns without accusing?

I was in a situation like this years ago , men are so gullible , what I did was I planted a seed in my hubbys head , I said "listen love but just be careful with ............,she is obviously vulnerable at the moment with the breakup of her relationship and any male role figure who is sympathetic may lead to mixed signals ,I am a woman and I know the signs I know you may not see this for yourself but I think you should be aware of it so watch yourself . My hubby said he hadn't noticed anything and just thought she was being friendly and I said , yes but stroking your tie and asking for lifts is overstepping the mark dont you think . Just make him aware of womanly ways some men are so naive
