"Dear Pulse,

My name is Jay and I am a 28-year-old man working in Lagos with a multi-national outfit. I got the job last year but since I joined the company, my immediate boss, a woman, has been making life difficult for me with her insistence that I must have a relationship with her.

This woman is 48-years-old, twice my age and is a single mother with three children but you would not notice because she is very beautiful and sexy. She is a member of the management team of the company and has a lot of clout among them.

In fact, I got to learn very early that if you are in her good books, you stand a chance of rapid promotion, financial benefits and other perks of office, and if otherwise, she can make life miserable for you.

The first day she saw me at the interview, she took a liking to me and made sure I was assigned to her office when I was employed.

I became more like her personal assistant because she always wanted me close to her. I had access to her house and she treated me like her son.

When my first salary alert came, I was surprised because it was more than what we had negotiated at the interview and when I mentioned it to her, she said she had influenced the increased salary.

Typically, most staff members were not happy with my closeness to her while one or two elderly ones called me aside and told me to very careful with her as she has a penchant for mood changes.

Her real intentions was made when she had her birthday party in May and as usual, she handed the planning over to me and I made sure everything was perfect.

At the party itself, there were many 'big girls' present, and many of them came with younger men, meaning that all her clique of friends were into keeping toy-boys.

At the party, she introduced me to her friends as her baby, something I was not comfortable with at all but I had to play along because I felt she was drunk.

After the party, she said I should take her to a hotel instead of going to her house and as I helped her into the room, she turned on me and planted her lips on mine. She was begging me to have sex with her but I could not, so I managed to escape from the room.

Two days later in the office, she was not her usual self as she was mad at me and snapped at anything I did. later that day, she called me into her office, locked the door and apologized for the way she was acting, telling me she was in love with me and wanted me to sleep with her right on her desk.

I told her plainly that I could not do such a thing. She was mad at me and has been since then. Though she has tried many other times to make me change my mind to no avail, she has finally given me an ultimatum: to either have the affair with her or I will be sacked.

I know she can do it and with the economic situation in the country, I cannot afford to lose my job.

What do I do now?
