My boss singles me out in every meeting. What should I do? Now I just dismiss it and smile.

I know it's obvious to my co workers like why he calls your name at every meeting? I try to act as if it's not an issue, but he does it so much that it really has become addictive. I am the only female who he does this too, and he's an older male.

In a good way or a bad way? He uses you for a good example or bad? If good, you must be blushing in the meetings! lol. Or if bad, you may be blushing in the meetings from embarrassment! :-(

Sounds like a serious "crush" to me. As long as he don't cross the line, I would be a little flattered. Just let it roll off your shoulder, just like you seem to be doing. Great job girl!

If that's something that makes you uncomfortable or gives you problems with co-workers .. talk to your boss privately about it.

Maybe it's totally innocent or maybe he's flirting. Either way, if it bothers you ... you have a right to discuss it with him.

You say it is obvious to your co-workers. . .do you know? Why (in their perception or yours) is he singling you out?
Without knowing that, I can't honestly advise you how to proceed.

You must be model employee, and he wants your co-workers to follow suit, or you're living on the edgeand the pink slip's coming.

I would not make an issue of this. Laugh it off. In this economy the less you make an issue of the better. Play along with it. If you can make a light joke of it at the meeting or just smile and pretend like his singling you out never happened. If you confront him on this in a private meeting you might make him defensive and cause friction between you and him.
