A female coworker and I had been getting more personal and friendly recently after 6 years of simply cordial greeting and sporadic smalltalk. Recently she asked me to help her lose weight because she noticed I had really slimmed down. I was flattered and really wanted to share my knowledge and what worked for me. I suggested meeting at Starbucks after work for privacy and curbing nosy coworkers. I had copies of some great material to give her and planned to help her write out a program she could use to start losing weight. She said sure, thanks for being willing to help me...but she said she was too busy that week and could we do it the next week. I emailed asking if she worked the following Friday as it would be a good day for me.
I never got a reply and she acts like it never happened. (She did receive and read the email.). No mention of it. Really pissed me off because I had already invested time in this, gave her a protein drink and a few helpful tips. I think it's really rude not to respond at all and suddenly drop it. My theory is she thought I had romantic ulterior motives, especially since her female coworker buddies are very catty and gossipy and maybe they gave her this idea. Or she got cold feet attempting to diet. Who knows. But it's made it weird for me because I feel she ignored me and was inconsiderate. So I've been avoiding her and keeping conversations to a minimum. How would you handle this?
