OP: "Hey do you like the drums? I used to be the drummer in a band during high school." Receptionist: "Oh yeah?" OP: "Yeah, what can I say? I was pretty good at banging my stick! I mean sticks. You look like you could do with some banging yourself, you know, it's quite relaxing and loosens your muscles." Receptionist: "Really? I guess I'll have to tell my husband, your boss, about that." OP: *O.O*

Eek, looks like meetings and evaluations are going to be awkward from here on out... But seriously op, why would hint that somebody you work with is bangable without knowing any details? Even the minor ones about being married?

The subtle ones are the worst because you can't outright reject them/tell them to stop being creepy ("oh, I didn't mean for you to take it THAT way! You know I'm just kidding around" blah blah blah). At least when someone's blatant it's easy to put a stop to it.

Sexual harassment is way too sensitive an issue. Saying that you like someone shouldn't be sexual harassment, people should have a right to air out feelings. People need to just embrace their humanity and stop pretending to be robots without feelings. Of course there is a difference between telling someone "Hey, I find you really attractive, would you ever be interested in going out with me" then being turned down and moving on and persisting with hinting, propositions and innuendo. A little maturity would be good in these situations, otherwise you DO end up with idiots who will keep popping up trying to drop "hints" because they know if they outright state their feelings they're looking at being in a heap of trouble. Relationships are a part of life, they can't develop in a closeted environment where such interaction is shunned.

Not appropriate at YOUR work. You shouldn't make a blanket statement like that when plenty of highly productive workplaces embrace human relationships and function quite successfully.

Gonna go ahead and say that if she felt the need to state that she's married, and that her husband is OP's boss, OP was not being as subtle as he claims/believes.
