Work boyfriend is a term that refers to a person's favorite male coworker. The relationship is supposed to be purely platonic, although it doesn't mean that one or both will not develop romantic feelings (Jim and Pam from "The Office").
Work boyfriend is often used by females who already have a real boyfriend. It is not meant to make a SO jealous, only to convey how close the friendship is. Although, if the friendship is really close and permeates to outside of work, jealousy could ensue.
