Imagine being at a business event (kind of a reception after a day of meetings) hosted by your SO’s job. Everyone brings their spouses. The men are wearing nice suits and ties and the ladies are wearing business suits and dresses. You are standing there with your SO, chatting, and one of SO’s colleagues walks over with his wife. You all shake hands and the colleague looks at you and says “You’re in such good shape” while he’s looking you up and down, then turns to your SO and says “She’s beautiful, she’s in such good physical shape, just beautiful” while still looking you up and down.
Is that inappropriate or OK?

Yes. That’s inappropriate.

Yuuuuuuup. Not to mention, probably awkward for that guy’s wife!

Idk. Some women would be okay with that.
Personally, I think it’s kind of odd, but my FI would never do that.

inappropriate, but i could see a few exceptions. is the woman really super fit? have the husband’s talked about the woman’s fitness before? maybe she is a triathlete, runner, body builder, etc?

Sounds like something that would happen at a state dinner with this administration, to be honest.

Horseradish : Are you a body builder or did you lose a ton of weight? One of my clients told me that I looked like I was in great shape. he was just trying to be nice since I lost 30 lbs. I thought it was very nice but it was a very non creepy delivery of the message and I looked dramatically different.

beevincent18 : some people are ok with just about anything. But the behavior described in the OP is never ok in a professional setting.

Horseradish : My FI would have whipped around and said what did you say?! Not cool with me, or him.

That is definitely creepy and inappropriate. I would feel so uncomfortable to be sized up and down like that by one of my FI’s colleagues. How did your SO* feel about it?

Yeah that’s inappropriate except for maybe if you’re in the fitness business. Either way it’s awkward for the guys wife.
