Is it normal my crush always brushes her teeth before spending time alone with me
So, I'm a woman. I have what you might call a romantic friendship with my female colleague. She is also my work coach. We have sessions together every 3 weeks. I am very infatuated with her and I think, from the long gazes, hugs and superfluous cheek-kisses, that the feeling is mutual.
For the record we're not from the same culture at all; I'm anglo-saxon and she's from a middle-eastern country.
To cut to the chase, I am puzzled that before every coaching session, she darts off to the bathroom exclaiming 'I'm just going to brush my teeth!'. She once added 'and wash my face'. Other than immediately before one of these sessions, she never normally explains what she is going to the bathroom for, or even announces that she is going to the bathroom at all.
Her general hygiene is impeccable and I have never noticed bad breath being a problem with her before.
What do you think the meaning of my colleague's behavior is? Please respond to the poll.
