Twelve Ways to Make Office Romance Work
Do you fancy someone at your office?
Well, you're not alone: According to Vault.com's annual review of office romance, 46% of employees surveyed have hooked up at some point. And it's no surprise, either. We spend more and more time working together, leaving few opportunities to find our ""perfect mate"" amid a sea of strangers. Plus, looking for love in your office is probably a more effective way to find a mate than going to bars and clubs--and less expensive, too. After all, the workplace is one of the few places where you can see a person for who they really are.
However, dating a co-worker may come with a price: Your fellow employees may not approve of the relationship and shun you both. Or the two of you could be the subject of vicious gossip. And what's the worst case scenario? One or both of you may be transferred or fired.
But that doesn't mean pursuing an office romance isn't worth the risk. The survey also revealed that 20% of staffers found their spouses at work. Therefore, if you believe that finding the person of your dreams is more important than a job, then dating a co-worker may be for you. However, you can minimize the chances of damaging your career by following these 12 pieces of advice.
There's no guarantee that dating a co-worker will lead to a blissful marriage, or even a worthwhile relationship. And some people will tell you that office romances should be avoided at all costs. But it's natural to be attracted to people we work with. And if two people really like each other, they should have the freedom to explore a relationship, as along as it doesn't disrupt the office environment. Good luck.
