Some of Gloria’s lines. Birds of a Feather: Phil and Andy’s friendship stems from this, as they have practically the same personality and interests. Impressively for an ensemble cast, all twelve main characters have celebrated a birthday at some point, though it’s not always the focus of the episode. Mitchell, Claire, and Gloria have never had a birthday episode as such, though Mitchell’s birthday takes place during one episode, and plans for Claire’s and Gloria’s upcoming birthdays have a minor impact on the plot of two episodes.
Being the family patriarch, Jay has had the most birthday episodes: Notably, his birthday celebrations usually begin or end a season, as a good reason to bring the whole family together for a single story line.

Initially, I thought she was interest in me too because she would come by just to say “hi,” even though we work in different positions in the same building, and ask me how I was doing while placing her hand on my back I never see her do this with other employees.
Now, I’m not say that these are for sure signs that she’s interested, but it made me think that she was interested. Although, recently I feel that I’ve given her the wrong impression like I just want to be friends. I didn’t ask her for her number yet and when I had a chance to give her a hug I didn’t. Basically, I haven’t made a move yet, and I’m starting to think that I waited too long giving off the impression that I just want to be friends.

Employers have a reason to worry. In , more than 13, sexual harassment claims were filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

I mean, here you have this guy for whom you have genuine feelings.
Moreover, this tempting option is present in your life constantly and is going to continue to be. Makes it pretty hard to resist with all that exposure and opportunity.
