Daniel*, aged 29, from Leeds revealed he was once approached by a married colleague at his work Christmas party.
“At my previous job, we used to have really big Christmas parties where all the departments would mingle and Prosecco would be on tap,”He stated.
“They were often quite messy affairs but one particular memory that stands out is our finance director approaching me and trying to make a pass at me in the bathroom.
“We’d always had friendly banter in the office but there were never any romantic feelings on my side. He also wasn’t openly gay and was actually married with children so it wasn’t something I saw coming!
“I obviously declined his offer but from then onwards it was super awkward whenever I bumped into him in the kitchen whilst making a cuppa and I was so embarrassed I actually never told any of my colleagues!”
