I was at a BBQ with dozens of people. A young ridiculously beautiful married couple was there. The wife was pregnant. They brought their short, squat, funnyman roommate with them. At some point funny man and pregnant wife are on opposite sides of the kitchen and I caught a glance between them - no more than a blink of an eye. It was the only interaction they had all night. In that instant I have never been more sure two people were fucking. Told my girlfriend, "Those two are smashing", she told me to stop being a creep. Sure enough 6 months later everyone finds out they're fucking and funnyman is the dad.


WingedLing

My guy. Wtf happened after that?


illepic

Draaaaamaaaaaaaa. Friends took sides. Friends were accused of knowing it was happening but not telling anybody. Divorce quickly followed. I lost touch with that crew after about a year, but they had mostly split into two camps: Funnyman vs Vanilla Ex-Husband. Funnyman really did have Bald Short Guy Big Dick Energy tho.


WingedLing

Hell yeah. That's the shit I needed.


LunarPhonix

Thank you for asking the right question so we could all get the hit we were dying for

Our CEO coming into a meeting to grab something from the QA/RA lady's purse was one a few of us saw once.


royal_rose_

They get awkward if you come up to them when they are together. I just want coffee and you’re standing in front of the machine and I didn’t think anything was going on until you got all awkward. You’re allowed to be friends and stand here and talk.


AlpacaOurBags

They could just be friends talking shit about you or someone else and don’t want you to hear.


BarriBlue

Kind of like what Joey in Friends reasoned. If there is chemistry on stage, chances are no chemistry in real life. If they are awkward on stage, chances are they are having sex in real life. If they are acting awkward in front of others and clearly trying hard to act like they don’t care about each other, sexual relationship. If they carry out as normal and work well together, no secret sexual relationship.


Stmpnksarwall

Their orbits are smaller around each other. Without meaning to, they will change their personal space requirements with the other. They'll think they're normal distance away, but won't be. Also, they'll move around each other too easily (like in small spaces) without the awkward missteps the rest of us make.


bisexualbitch98

Yeah if I needed to get past my coworker (who I was sleeping with) I'd just touch him or push him a little bit even if there was enough space, definitely didn't do that with anyone else


Sir_Meowsalot

It's definitely the awkward avoidance of one another for no reason. When I was a supervisor two of my employees were secretly dating and being as young as they were (19-20yrs old) they didn't have the ability to hide their feelings without avoiding each other as if they hated one another. I figured it out on Day 1. Hilariously cute. Edit: when they finally told me I told them I already knew. They were flabbergasted that I figured it out. It wasn't that hard! When y'all make googly eyes at one another across the store or try to surreptitiously touch hands at the till I'm gonna notice.


BrambleNATW

This happened to me. I started my first ever job and by the end of the day the coworker assigned to train me had added me on Facebook and was chatting. Within the week we were seeing eachother. Another coworker was in the same sports club as me and he was consoling a drunken friend having relationship problems. He kept telling her 'don't worry you can always talk to me if you have problems or need to vent' and then he says 'that applies to you too' (he was a gent like that) and I just said as a joke 'I need to be seeing someone for that' and he said 'you're seeing (coworker)' completely deadpan. I thought we were subtle. We had no reason to hide it either, we were just awkward. Turns out they all knew and our boss was deliberately pairing us up on shifts to help him out. Fun fact was the original coworker who was meant to train me was the club friend who was so hungover on the day he couldn't manage it.


TheLatinaNerd

HAHA that happened to my fiancé and I. We were hanging out as “friends” and trying to be low key about flirting while unbeknownst to both of us our manager was putting us on the same shifts because she thought we made a cute couple and knew we both liked each other. Well I’m marrying him next year and our four year anniversary is in August so I guess it worked out!

Glassmoon0fo

When your SO brings someone up way too much in the beginning then mysteriously stops talking about them at all, even when the situation potentially calls for it.


webdevmike

Wife: We got a new guy at work. I have to start training him tomorrow. *next day* I started training the new guy today. His name is Kevin. Kevin's actually pretty funny. You'd like Kevin. Kevin has the same sense of humor as us. *next week* They sent me and Kevin to the other branch today. They gave us the company card for lunch so we went to a nice place. Kevin took forever deciding what to get. Kevin said he didn't recognize most of the items so I had to order for Kevin. *next month* They're sending me to Miami this weekend to meet with a prospective client. Husband: Oh that's nice. Is Kevin going too? Wife: Who?


Earl_Green_

Couldn't help but picture Kevin from the Office, which made this pretty funny.

sexbuhbombdotcom

Right?? I'm looking at a lot of these responses about glancing at each other and laughing, dawdling near each other's desks, casually getting up and walking out of the room a couple of minutes apart (to secretly meet in the break room and gossip while eating snacks) and thinking, "I do this with my friends all the time"

I work in HR and someone dropped an anonymous tip once that a member of senior management was sleeping with a female subordinate. So IT gave me access to their emails… and I swear to god, the moment I read “I can still smell you on my fingers”, I immediately wanted to quit HR.

Someone I am loosely acquainted with told me his job in IT sees a lot of "surprising" things done on work devices so not surprised to hear this happened!


vonsmor

I work IT and for every one person we uncover doing something blatantly sleazy with coworkers on work email, there are 20(mostly older people) falling for relationship scams via work email and sending money to John/Jennifer from a Nigerian/Indian IP. 90% of the time they are mad we gently break the news to them with proof. One lady had sent her boyfriend she never met over $4000 in Google Play Store gift cards over a couple months, because that is the only way he could exchange money in "Canada" for a plane ticket and to pay for the vacation they were planning.

MyBatmanUnderoos

As someone who once had a wonderful female work friend who would always try to get the cat hair off my shirt when I came in… …I suspect I was missing cues there. Edit: At this point with this many positive and negative responses, I should probably clarify that I just asked my fiancée and confirmed, yes, she was indeed trying to send me a signal when she was pulling the cat hair off me, but I didn’t actually get the message until like a year later.

AntiguaProducts

One time I was riding in the work truck and my co-worker asked if I wanted to go to her house and watch movies. We were about to drive by it and I said nah we are at work. She wanted to Netflix and chill before Netflix was a thing. Only reason I found out was years later one of her friends brought it up. I miss so many hints like that, it's crazy. Edit: Comma placement


Thetakishi

That's a definite one. Sorry.


MynOlie

A bunch of us used to hang out on a Teamspeak server to play games. One day we were chatting when the server admin just blurted out: "So [guy] and [girl], you two have the same IP address today. You fucking?"

That would've been embarrassing and funny at the same time


fastjeff

"Well, not right now."


smashinMIDGETS

Something similar is how we found out our foreman was having relations with one of his subordinates. Snapchat map had them both at the same cottage property at 5am


Ralynne

"You fucking?" Is simultaneously so rude and so funny


dscp46

Oh man. I was the first to figure out a co-worker relationship when I noticed her logged in from his static IP one morning back in the day of ISDN lines.


Acrobatic-Report958

If you know them before it they’ll stop flirting as much as they had been prior to it. They make sure they don’t leave a place together but linger around long enough to know when the other is leaving. They look at each other when something funny or bad happens.


Flashy_Anything927

The glances.


BuzzAwsum

The Jim


bucketheadrobot

Yeah I figured out a coworker was sleeping with a (married) regular at an old job because of the glances. One day she was there, he walked in, they made eye contact with each other and quickly broke it off before greeting each other a moment later. Edit: this sorta blew up, so here are some more details. Her marriage had been broken for a bit. I didn’t immediately figure out they were sleeping together in that moment, but I started to pay attention to their interactions more and it was pretty clear they were hiding something- they had a slight formality. (The best example I can give is when you’re high and pretending not to be-they seemed to be pretending something wasn’t going on: they stiffened ever so slightly when the other was near, they said “good morning, how are you?” To each other instead of the more standard “hey” etc)


TheChurchOfDonovan

We humans are ridiculous


Alaska_Roy

They start using each other’s speech mannerisms. Like one of them always replies to something you say to them with, “Is that right?”, and then you hear your wife saying it all the time after you get back from a week long work trip. Edit for everyone saying they do this all the time: Yes, it is common and I also do it. It’s just the way I keyed into the affair. Both can be true. Peace!


How_to_Phish

I'm sorry Alaska_Roy. It sounds like your wife maybe had another Alaskan_Toy??


Alaska_Roy

They’re married now so he gets to deal with her, not me! Life, man, what a trip. :)


SavageDemolition849

fuck man that hurt


tabruss

I’ve caught people because they didn’t follow one another on social media to try to avoid suspicion, but they both posted that they were at the same place and similar photos, and despite not posting about one another, it was obvious. They didn’t know what the other was posting because they didn’t follow one another lmfao which ultimately lead to the downfall of their discretion.


Brocky70

>but they both posted that they were at the same place and similar photos, and despite not posting about one another, it was obvious. This happened to a work friend of mine, he told me he was going to a baseball game that weekend. In a weird twist, our company had hired an old female acquaintance of mine who periodically updated her snapchat. I have no idea if my friend knew me and her were friendly enough to be on social media together. This was also proceeded by some people in the building suggesting they had started dating. Well low and behold that weekend she posts a bunch of snaps of the game, no photos of who she was with, but a few of her posing for pictures with someone else recording. The ruse barely lasted another two weeks


icybikes

The little conversational clues. Like when two people glance knowingly at each other frequently, or have friendly little side whispers because they have their own thing going on apart from the group. And they hover near each other to be physically close. All those little examples of intimacy that is only between them. A married ex friend of mine once started showing up with a woman and acting like that. I could tell they were banging, and I couldn't believe he wasn't trying harder to conceal it. Turns out, the poor woman had no idea he was married, and was unaware that everyone else DID know. It was later traumatizing to her to realize she had been seen as a mistress, when she was the only person who didn't know what was really happening. She's now a friend of mine. He is not.


toothpastenachos

Poor woman. Seems like she dodged a bullet


BlissfulEating

Sometimes you can tell by the way they casually (appropriately) touch each other in public. Certain things are awkward until you cross that line.


CathyTheGreatsHorse

At a place I worked at about 25 years ago, female coworker dropped her screwdriver and our boss picked it up and stuck it in her pocket. Later that day my buddy says "She did not flinch or look away from what she was doing when his hand went to her pocket - his hand has been in that pocket before".


DeadInTheCrypt

His screwdriver has been in that pocket before.


rrogido

The thing that has gotten myself and others busted is a change in affect/relationship at the office. In the lead up to dating a coworker there is usually flirty behavior between the two people. Not inappropriate, but it has a certain energy. When you start dating a coworker and the two of you want to keep it quiet I have noticed some people (myself included) will outclever themselves and tone down their at work behavior. Well, that's a change and changes in behavior makes something more noticeable. We thought we were being super spies about it and I got my wake up call, literally. There was a work emergency and her boss (we worked in different departments) called my phone and asked if she as there because he couldn't get ahold of her. I was all, "why are you asking me?" and his response was, "Relax, everyone knows. You're not exactly subtle. Now is she there because I need her to call so and so." It was as I said a fucking wake up call that the people you're with every day notice shit.


BlissfulEating

Oh, absolutely with the outclevering! Why are you guys acting suspiciously less “friendly”? Ha!


rrogido

It's the little shit that trips you up unless you're really some kind of deceitful mastermind. The smoke spot at my old job was out back in the alley, behind the warehouse. My coworker (and later girlfriend) and I would take our afternoon smoke break together before we were dating. It was quality flirt time. After we started dating; the production manager, warehouse staff, and as it turned out the guys in the welding shop next door all knew we started dating because we didn't take our smoke break together anymore. This was entirely separate from the office staff noticing that we were no longer staring after each other longingly in the hallways anymore. Neither of these things occurred to us at all and we were TRYING to be sneaky. With age you realize that if you're trying to be sneaky you're probably failing.


IlianaNovic

They find excuses to touch each other in passing, their eyes give them away.


EatinSumGrapes

Carpooling when there is not much convenience to it because they don't live all that close to each other.


moonvalleyriver

Interestingly, now husband offered to carpool with me because we do live close to each other, but I was fine using the company shuttle. I kind of thought that it was a inappropriate offer because I had a boyfriend that time so I did not agree with the arrangement. When my then boyfriend broke up with me for another girl, we re-opened this conversation about carpooling and things ended up in marriage so I guess carpooling is a big deal. Also happened with my sister, she also married her own carpool guy.


A_Mouse_In_Da_House

Think how long your commute takes. That's time you're trapped along together with nothing to do but talk


bNuser

If one person slips and mostly reacts to something funny or distinct to that individual, when the rest of the group isn't. And they might try to cover or restrain that emotion


Brewnonono

This is painfully, embarrassingly accurate


toxoplasmosix

why can't i understand a word you said


DeusEx-Machinist

Had coworkers at a local mom and pop a few years back that would hold hands at work but let go as soon as someone else walked in the room. It was the unspoken secret of the store and the owner told us in no uncertain terms that we were *never* to discuss it. They were very much married to other people and from what I could see, their respective spouses had no idea about it. Even at company parties, they didn't even make eye contact. At work though, it was almost like it was their first crush. They were both extremely nice people, just apparently not to their spouses. I walked in on them sleeping together at the store one night after close and a couple of days later I was summarily fired. Edit: A few people have said that they would have told their spouses, but it was the owner who fired me, not them. Plus, I really didn't have a way of contacting their spouses anyway.


Anarcho_Nazbolin

Lol did they allow your boss to watch or something? Why the hell was he so intent on allowing them to cheat?


MRoad

If i had to guess, their spouses finding out would lead to one or both of them quitting, and he didn't want that.


Fantastic-Ad-3299

So he just, one by one, fires everyone else?


FarewellAndroid

He's the only one with access to the security footage


OhLordyLordNo

That last line sucked.


DeusEx-Machinist

Yeah, I really enjoyed the job, too. I guess they felt like I might tell one of their spouses what I saw.


DrStrangerlover

Why the hell was the owner that invested in keeping two other subordinates’s affairs a secret?


DeusEx-Machinist

The owner and the other guy were lifelong friends. I mean, it's still shitty that everyone else at the store had to be pulled into keeping an affair secret, definitely.


Snipen543

That would have made me tell them


viperfan7

Yeah if they fired me for that, I'd be telling them that I'll be telling their spouses as I have no reason not to now


jamesonSINEMETU

That seems like a great path to actually telling on them


EatinSumGrapes

The two of them consistently being the last ones left at the group hangout, especially if one of them is hosting.


bralma6

I have a pair of friends I play Destiny with. There is never a time one isn't on while the other is. And when I play with them, I feel like a 3rd wheel. They don't talk like couples do. They just make each other laugh the whole time. This had been going on for like, 6 months. One day they wanted to do a dungeon, so I hoped in the discord call and the first thing I said was "Ya'll fucking or what? Cause if not, you need to." They started busting up laughing and the guy said "Funny you say that, she just moved from across the country to move in with me." That was like, a year ago and they're still together.

Once I had a girl over and he wasnt picking up that we wanted space. I cleaned my glasses and he just blurted out that he was really horny and walked out of the room.

Funny thing about that... I have a genuine friendship with a (now former) co-worker. We used to go to lunch together quite a bit before covid. Yeah, people made jokes and suggestions but nothing was going on... but one day my wife and I went to lunch at the same Chinese restaurant that our friend and I frequented and the server was just rude as hell to my wife. Took me awhile to figure out that she thought I was married to my co-worker and cheating on her with my wife. I said to my wife "I don't get it, we don't playy footsies under the table, we talk about work." To which my wife said "You mean like an old married couple?" Oh. So the next week we all went there for lunch together. The look on the servers face when I said "This is my friend, THIS is my wife" was priceless. Edit: thanks for the award, kind stranger!

Pay attention to who they look at when they laugh. It may not reveal a sexual relationship necessarily, but it’s such an innocent act that at the very least reveals that they want to ensure they are connected it that moment.

sevenandseven41

These two I used to work with, they got found out because a skunk sprayed outside the guys house real bad. The next day they came in to work separately and ignored each other as usual, but they both smelled like skunk. Then everyone knew, but they didn’t know we knew.


Phiced

I hope the skunk wasn't a part of their sexual playground


Taymac070

Dont kink shame the skunk


Otfd

They act weird all of a sudden when things that should be considered normal happen. Like friends acting playful but they suddenly stop (Because they realize it might be taken the wrong way) when in reality it wouldn't they are only fearing such as they know things are indeed the wrong way.


tacknosaddle

A friend at work started secretly dating a co-worker and it was completely obvious because of the shift from the routine way they had always acted to one of almost strained professionalism when they interacted around others. Plus you'd catch things like the sidelong glances or weird excuses about why neither one could join everyone after work when they probably had plans together. When he finally told me I replied, "Yeah, no shit." and laid out all the telltale clues they had been showing. He was genuinely surprised as he thought that they had been successfully keeping it on the down low.


BlindTeemo

I had the opposite problem, where I thought my girlfriend and I were a fairly obvious couple, but when we brought it up two months later everyone was genuinely surprised. Either most people didn't care, or were too busy paying attention to other things I guess.

DrScooterPie

They almost try too hard to hide it. Like if they go to an arcade with their coworkers they’ll play different games but right beside each other instead of just playing together. Or they’ll flirt with total strangers at the bar area. Or freak out if people think they’re flirting. Just stuff like that


notevebpossible

Does anyone else's wife have a Native American healer that comes by 3 or 4 times a week to help with her migraines?


ElegantGary

If you’re going through something to make you ask this, trust your gut. I had the gut feeling my ex wife was cheating, all the signs were there but I just thought she’d never do that and all the evidence was coincidental. My brain didn’t want to see it, so I put blinders on. Fast forward a couple of months, I found out she was, and my family all said I must be an idiot for not seeing what was right in front of me. Ask others opinions that you both know, they’ll tell you an unbiased opinion. Someone you can trust


get_psalm

Similar situation. Your first initial gut reaction is usually correct. The hard part is accepting that somebody you love would betray you.


hraun

I always thought it was a pretty profound observation in Love Actually that Emma Thompson's character spotted that her lizard of a husband and that floozy made an effort not to react to each other. She served him a drink at a party, and he didn't say thank you. Subtle

_halboro

Staring. I was secretly seeing a guy in school. As far as everyone else was concerned we couldn’t stand each other. This girl I barely knew pulled me aside and whispered “I don’t know what’s going on between you two but you need to stop staring or everyone else is going to know.” Later on he wanted to know what the girl said to me. I wasn’t about to admit she noticed my staring, so I said “she thinks there’s something going on with us because you keep staring at me!”

They exchange a speedy sly glance upon the mention of a sex act. Two co-workers did this during a game of never have I ever. Little did they know, I’d already caught them weeks before. It was fun watching how they responded to various comments. Surprisingly unsubtle once I knew.


million_monkeys

My boss brought his skittish dog to the office who was nervous around everybody but his secretary who pretended to have never met the dog before. The dog loved her and was comfortable with her instantaneously, which the boss says the dog is never like that.

Yeah, but some animals sometimes do that. The animal recognises some attribute of a total stranger all by itself, and the person may genuinely have never met it before. Source: dog owner who grew up with dogs, cats, etc.

Yeah it's a different kind of intimacy. My friend said she could tell I was secretly at it with this guy because he took a chip from my plate (like fries, am in UK) at a restaurant. And she was right.

Possible-Newb-Sub

Usually it's somewhat obvious when it's co-workers. They just act a little off. I think because they straddle this line of being close but trying to act not close. So it presents low key awkward when things didn't used to be that way.

I worked on a tv show and there were rumors that one of the married cast members was hooking up with this other hot blonde cast member. Wasn't sure if the rumors were true until I saw the stage/reunion show. When everyone walked on stage, they were the only two out of 16 that didn't hug. Totally fucked

You have to go fuck them both individually, and see if either of them have the same tricks.

Check if they taste like the other.

Cry out the missing person's name as you come, see how they react.

From the guy who dated a coworker in secret, watch the eyes. I realized, after a couple months, that anytime our staff meetings would start laughing, I was looking at her. Just watch where people look, it a natural give away of at least who likes each other.

Exactly this. I dated a coworker and that’s how our meetings were too. Id constantly catch him staring at me across the room, etc. That’s eventually how one of my coworkers caught on.

I’m convinced everyone in this thread thinks they are way better at reading people than they actually are

Prolonged eye contact

*Prolonged eye contact*

I worked in a large office and there were always “secret” affairs going on. If one of the people left by the door the other would leave by the window! You can be the best of work acquaintances, chat, joke around etc. but as soon as it goes further then you go out of your way to ignore each other!

At my workplace, when you know what's going on with two coworkers, you can tell by the way they interact physically. They almost walk into each other when they "close" talk, their hands brush each other's thighs or hands. and then there's the eye contact...call me crazy, but this is 25+ years of forensic study lol!

My husband and I met at work, and the place we worked at didn't allow couples to work in the same area as a conflict of interest type thing, so we hid our relationship as best as we could so we wouldn't get moved. A lot of people here are saying people who are seeing each other go out of their way to avoid the other person, but we kept treating each other same, like close friends. The only difference really is that we started carpooling together. People still noticed anyway, and some would ask coworkers in our area if we are seeing each other. My feeling is that it doesn't matter if you go out of your way to hide it, avoid the person, etc., there will always be small signs that others pick up on.

This thread makes me concerned that everyone in existence is in a secret sexual relationship..... Im kind of jealous :/ Th only thing fucking me is .y college assignments.

3 different couples at work (all married to other people and cheating) and I knew all of them were hooking up. I mean, not just me, a lot of us did. Going to lunch together, doing the thing where they leave separately but together...scheduling offsite meetings at the same time...and mostly the way they looked at each other. Idc how good you think you are, it's hard to pretend you didn't just fuck 10 minutes before the afternoon meeting. Shockingly, all these people ended up leaving their spouses and marrying each other and it's been years, so far they're all still together. Anyway, we all see y'all 🤣

Tell one of them you have a crush on the other one and see what they say.


thesimplemachine

I did this once, but it was on accident, not because I suspected something was going on between them. I told the manager that I had a crush on one of my coworkers (restaurant, so workplace dating/hookups were usually casual and not terribly uncommon, and me and him were pretty good friends). He responded something along the lines of "You and everybody else, it seems." Which I assumed was because I'd heard other co-workers (mostly the line cooks) mention how attractive she is. He also mentioned that they live in the same neighborhood and hang out frequently and he could put in a good word for me. I eagerly accepted, but I never really felt any vibes from her so just kinda forgot about it. Found out later they had been secretly dating for a couple years at that point, and realized the subtle hints that he was trying to drop in the conversation and was so embarrassed. We never actually addressed it directly, and we're still all friends but he ended up choosing to resign when the rest of management found out he was dating his direct subordinate and blew up over it.

They accidentally send a company wide email sharing a picture from their vacation together in Sandals Jamaica.

Tan almost everywhere. Jan almost everywhere. Hee hee


hungoverlord

Officially, I did not see her. But, I did see Jan there. In our room. At night. And in the morning. That's all I'm going to say. Sex. Sex. We had sex. I had sex with her. I had sex with Jan.

I’m a person of faith. If I just overhear them talking about how they fucked? I’ll believe them.


Jenova66

One of them starts showing up to group hangouts way overdressed. It’s for whoever they are banging.

They glow under a blacklight when they come back from 'inventory'.
