DEAR DEIDRE: I CAN’T stop buying my workmate gifts, even though she lives with her boyfriend.

Last week I gave her chocolate and perfume and I took her on a shopping trip for her birthday.

I’m 50, single and work for a courier company. She’s 32 and one of the drivers.

She’s gorgeous and makes me laugh. I look forward to going to work just to see her.

I don’t really expect anything, just to be friends. Perhaps in the future it might lead to a bit of fun, too.

I simply enjoy buying her gifts, especially as she’s struggling for money. She is always grateful.

But I’m worried she’ll soon realise I want more than friendship, or that her partner will get angry with me.

DEIDRE SAYS: You are playing a dangerous game.

Not only does she have a potentially jealous boyfriend, but she works with you and you are much older.

Your behaviour could be seen as sexual harassment.

You say you enjoy buying her gifts, but in return you are hoping for casual sex.

This has to stop. Try to arrange different shift patterns from hers until your feelings fade.
