Some time ago, my corporation has admitted the sexiest co-worker there and we had lots of Tension in the beginning to the point that we were too rude with each other and only talked about strict working matters (no one else noticed our particular relationship there). I used to ignore her and act like a natural around her (being lots of cordial with other people, showing my best at working, being lots of funny and showing her that everybody liked and respected me, looking in her eyes whenever I had to talk to her and leaving immediately when conversation finished, etc).
The next step is that we started respecting each other even if only at a formal level and then very friendly but with a little distance. Recently, she touched me for the first time (offering to help me doing some pasting first and touching my elbow when asking a question later - I didn't show any surprise to her) In the beginning she stepped way from me (but I never let her know that I noticed that). It's very easy for there to know each other ages discretly (to the point that no one knows if we ever checked it). I'm 43 and she's 27.
Some time ago, she asked me to treat a personal paper of her (she could have asked another fellow of mine) where appeared her birthday, but she couldn't say if I had paid attention to the detail. So, one week later she commented that a customer which age I had just referred was one year older than her. Seems she really wanted to make sure that I know her age, but why?
She's one of the youngest co-workers and the only one who may challenge her is 34 (she's very jealous of this one - something no one notices, except me).
My question is this:
I'm very intrigued why she's so obsessed that I know her age, especially given that she's some 15-years-old younger... (Any one could guess her age is between 26 and 30, much younger than me of course).
I doubt that many people may answer me, but would like to start an assay to reach an answer. I think that this has a lot to do with female psychology and must be very interesting.
