Too mush of a good thing

My co-worker\’s not my type but, I guess, is cute in a navy-blue golf shirt kind of way. He\’s nice and smart, so I often talk and joke with him. Lately, though, he seems to think I want to be more than just co-workers (eeuw). He goes out of his way to avoid me and talks loudly about his girlfriend when I\’m in earshot — his way of rejecting my \”advances\” (like saying \”bless you\” when he sneezes). This has happened twice before at other jobs and makes me feel awkward and dumb. Why are some guys like this while others get that I\’m just a very friendly person? — Sending the Wrong Signals? A man can get \”signals\” from a woman across the room with her back to him, confiding to her friend, \”By age 8, I knew I was a lesbian\”; which, of course, is her way of telling the man, \”Just for you, big guy, I\’m wearing the purple pasties with the propellers.\” Studies by psychologist Antonia Abbey, evolutionary psychologist Martie Haselton and others, show that men actually have a tendency to perceive friendly overtures as overly friendly overtures — inferring sexual interest from a woman where there is none. The most likely explanation is Haselton and David Buss\’ \”Error Management Theory\”: Humans are evolutionarily hard-wired to make errors in judgment on the side of their...

ARIES (March 21-April 19) I suspect you\\\’ll be a genius of awkwardness in the coming week, Aries. What that means is that you\\\’ll have a knack for doing the half-right thing at the half-right time–and yet that\\\’s exactly what\\\’ll be necessary in order to bring about unexpected outcomes that are in everyone\\\’s best interests. In the short run you may make a perfect mess, but I bet that will ultimately add more beauty and intrigue to the big picture. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Dear Grandma and Grandpa of the Taurus this horoscope has been prepared for: I\\\’m hoping you will bring your helpful influence to bear on our little darling\\\’s dilemma. I know that in your own past you once had to navigate your way through complications similar to those that Taurus is now facing. So even if you have died and are in spirit form, please bestow your advice and encouragement, whether that\\\’s delivered by phone, via telepathy, in dreams, or in person. One more thing: Please don\\\’t let your wise blessing get tainted by any lingering disapproval you might be harboring about the path our beloved Taurus has chosen. This is a time for your smart love, not your judgment. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) In the language of archetypal psychology, the term hierosgamos means \\\”sacred marriage.\\\” It may refer to a literal coming together of two people...
