I've seen this mentioned on other forums with mixed results and opinions. After reading the description I realized that a while back, I did indeed have a work wife. Somebody who I worked with I considered a great friend, confided in, and cared what their opinion was. Of course that's all it was for you sick minded folks, because both of us were happily married, but I am curious... Is this as common as it seems? PS, Once I left the company I stayed in touch for 3-4 years but we've both moved towards opposite ends of the country, but still email facebook etc. Opinions? Today I'm in a weird mood, but curious.
