We call work work because, well, it's work, not play. So, it should be no surprise that two research studies, reports BLOOMBERG BUSINESS WEEK, conclude that when attractive females flirt in the workplace they do often get an edge. Also, about 21% do that for just that reason.
They know how much a diversion is welcome at work. A fantasy romance can make being held captive 9 to 5 downright erotic.
The tragedy associated with the tactic is its short shelf life. By age 30 the female is less attractive and a newer version takes over her former space. Unless she prepared for the reality of aging and developed other competitive tactics, she will be one sorry soul.
In my next life I am convinced that I will return as a long-legged blue-eyed blond with the charm of a Southern belle. Then when that becomes less marketable I will attend college at age 30. Since professors can't date their students any more, which used to lead to wealthy marriages for some women, attending college in one's prime years makes no economic common sense.
