Nairobi - Signs to look out for when your partner has just acquired a work spouse.
Work calls can no longer be taken around you
You know it is a colleague, so none of you
were ever worried. But as you sense the distancing in your relationship, you
are also sort of mystified why they can no longer talk to this person around
you when they could before. They become more secretive with their phone. We all
know phones are of limit most times, but this one it becomes more obvious.
no longer check on you at lunch
Because they are busy having lunch with
them. Normally, for some couples, they would make it a habit to take their
lunch break together if proximity allows, one calls in just because or gets
something for the other. If it was a never a routine for you guys, then no
problem. If it was and it suddenly stops and they are not comfortable taking
your calls, mumble or end the conversation quickly- they are with their work
spouse most of the time.
becomes exciting to go to
If it is about passion and all that fine
but normally, when working for someone, you get to a point it just goes out of
you. When your spouse suddenly changes, is more picky and meticulous with their
dressing and in a very suggestive way. They wake up early and don’t even groan
and don’t mind going in on a weekend on some collective project, maybe you
should watch out. They can suddenly get the zeal for what they do- maybe but
when it is with better dressing sense…..
don’t mind overtime
With regard to the above. They are coming
home later and later. Yes, someone can have a project that demands their time,
but only until it is done. But when it becomes an everyday occurrence that is
never ending and your spouse is not even complaining…..hmmm.
now become suspicious of your colleagues
You know what they say, when someone is
doing something, they now start thinking maybe the other one is as well. If
they start doubting you, you should consider maybe they are the culprit. Even
if they ended it, they now focus on you creating issues that were never there
