My co-writer made a move on me. What do I do?

Since you made a point to say you’re straight, are we to assume your writing partner is a gay man and you’re a straight man?

From what you wrote, it sounds like he made at pass at you, you turned him down, and that was that. But the lingering uncomfortableness is coming from you now that you know he is attracted to you. Is that correct? Or is he STILL making passes at you even after you declined?

Are you uncomfortable because he’s a dude who’s into you? Or are you uncomfortable because he continues to cross boundaries? If it’s the former, that’s your own baggage to deal with. If it’s the latter, then that’s definitely harassment, and you need to have a very clear and direct conversation with him about remaining professional or the partnership needs to end.
