Thanks for putting this so clearly, Adam. I have two ‘work husbands,’ and over the years I’ve worked with them they’ve become some of my closest friends. I’m grateful that both they and their wives (one of whom I’m close to, and one whom I’m not) understand and value that friendship, because it has enriched both my work and personal life. I’m baffled by the idea that all male-female interactions have to be tinged with sexual connotations, and the way you tied that to out-dated social norms makes complete sense to me. Thanks!
