Many men and women avoid professional one-on-one situations, survey finds

Both men and women avoid one-on-one interactions with members of the opposite sex at work, according to a new survey conducted by Morning Consult and The New York Times.

Twenty-two percent of men and 25 percent of women surveyed feel it is inappropriate to have a one-on-one work meeting with someone of the opposite sex, and those numbers climbed greatly when discussing scenarios outside of work. Forty-five percent of men and 53 percent of women felt it was inappropriate to have dinner with someone of the opposite sex other than their spouse.

Earlier this year, Vice President Mike Pence created a stir when he said that he would not have dinner alone with a woman who was not his wife.
