But I do, do harmless teasing with a coworker . It wasn't until my coworker asked me out for a drink after work that I told him I was under 21, he joked about me seeming older. Later he pressed to give me his number, I took it but it felt awkward and wrong .
Am I wrong in this situation? Should I tell my boyfriend or not? I feel like it was wrong!
- no, seems okay to me
- yes, this isn't okay
- I'm not sure

Platonic flirting with someone who understands that is what it is, is harmless. I have flirted with female friends all my life. But it is understood to be flirting only, not making advances. I even flirted with my wife's best friend in front of my wife (and she flirted with me, even in front of her husband). Our relationship included lip kisses when we had not seen each other for a long time. the flirting even included talk of using a shower facility together at a camping ground we were all at. being a nudist, I actually could have done that, but we all knew she could not. lol As you have seen, various people have various ideas on what is proper. Right now the only really important belief about it is your boyfriend's. Talk to him.

Flirting is fine, but I wouldn't recommend doing too much of it.
One rule: NEVER flirt with someone else in front of your boyfriend.
Flirting is a natural thing. It happens. There is nothing wrong with flirting outside of your relationship. There are two kinds of flirting - platonic and romantic. You are obviously doing it platonically. Also, just make sure that you set this guy straight on the fact that you ARE taken. I would tone down the flirting with him too. You are obviously giving him the wrong signals and making him think that you might want more than a friendship.
What bothers me is that no one sees a problem if you are flirting with the same gender, but as soon as it's the opposite gender all hell breaks loose. Flirting is mostly harmless, but you should set some boundaries as to try to minimize the confusion between you and your coworker.
