This is a question for the women. I am going to be taking a young lady out this week that I work with and some of the other women in the office have made comments like, "oh, you should date her" or "you guys would be so cute together". Now I'm not really offended by this, but at this same time I don't really like the idea of people at work being nosey and asking how things went, or what's up with us... so do you think it's appropriate to ask my date that we keep it on the down-low from our work friends? I don't want her to be offended thinking I'm embarrased to be going out with her obviously, but at the same time I don't really need the added pressure of a bunch of old ladies trying to watch a live soap opera unfold in front of them. If a guy asked you not to tell people at work you were dating, would you think he was embarrased of you? or would you understand why?

So long as he explained himself I would be fine.
My current boyfriend and I didn't tell anyone we were together until about two or three months into the relationship because people would have given me sh*t about it. (My ex had just broken up with me and then I started dating a new guy about two weeks later and they'd say he was a rebound or they'd think I was a slut or something.)
We weren't going to tell anyone for another month but one of his friends bitched us out for not having it on Facebook and stuff so we just changed it to shut her up. Mind you I love this girl, she's awesome and one of my favorite people so I don't mean that sentence meanly at all.0
