So I've been in the Middle East for a while now and it looks like I'm getting the itch to go home again. Home to me is the US. That's where I was born and lived most of my life. Things have been getting complicated and I feel like I just need to go home and regroup.

Work has officially become weird. One of my colleagues (a much older colleague) has been hitting on me and actually tried to move in for a kiss. I think I actually felt my skin crawl just at the idea that he was standing so close to me. I quickly moved and didn't have to be in an even worse situation. What was he thinking? He is double my age and has daughters my age!!!! I have made a point from the first day at work to wear nothing form fitting and nothing that shows skin. What more should I do? This is one of the downsides of being the only female.

I am hoping that I'll be able to go home and take a break to figure out my next move.


  1. that stinks!

    i know the feeling and it stinks!

    actually, one of the reasons why i like my job is that the one guy who has such tendencies has that image of me that i would bite his head off... so he only hints and it makes me sick to my stomach, and i play dumb...

    my only advice is that you don't act like a victim around him... give your presence more strength; it will baffle him and hopefully intimidate him

  2. thank you! i haven't seen him in a couple weeks and i'm keeping my fingers crossed that i won't see him for a long time...the thing i don't understand about guys is they don't know what is in their league and what is not in their league...

    girls usually won't flirt with a guy if she knows he's out of her league...but guys think any girl is in their league...
