Legal Question in Sexual Harassment in Virginia

I had a employee who flirted with me and I responded too only while at work.This resulted in some texting involving some romantic texts but none revealing or nasty or lewd. I made remarks like love you, miss you, etc. Also asked for a picture of her smiling face for using it as id for her calls. She started taking off and now when I put my foot down she is threatening to sue me and get money. Is this possible. She was a cashier in my C-Store.

Does the situation described have merit under federal

4th Circuit Court of Appeals law as a valid case for sexual harassment in the workplace? Probably, not (my opinion).

But, if this person retains counsel who files a federal case against

you, you will obviously also need an attorney to represent you.
