Mad Men star January Jones got into a hit-and-run accident last weekend, and called on Food Network star Bobby Flay to assist her, Flay’s rep confirmed to E! News.  Jones called Flay before she called the police.  While Flay claims the two have only met a few times, some sources are calling Flay and Jones’ relationship into question.  Flay’s wife has yet to comment on the incident. They have been married for five years.

How close is too close when it comes to male-female friendship?

Cupid’s Advice:

Though it’s perfectly normal for married men and women to have friends of the opposite sex, certain situations cross into tricky territory:

1. Late-night phone calls: Aside from the necessary emergency, frequent phone calls or text messages – particularly when one or both parties are married – can lead to questions.  If you’re in bed with your partner and he or she is talking to someone else, that could spell P-R-O-B-L-E-M.

2. A constant third wheel: If your ‘friend’ starts showing up on dates or nights out with your partner, it could lead to an awkward situation.  No one wants to be the third wheel; voluntary submission to this role must be for a reason.

3. Putting them first: The ultimate bad omen is when your partner habitually puts this other person first.  When he or she is constantly chosen over you for lunch breaks or other events, it sends the message that your partner is moving away from you.
