Dating people at work bad idea
Smash and dash can get awkward, but if the girl is cool and you're not explicitly a dick, any awkwardness blows over with time - Dated coworker for a few months - We didn't tell anyone - Smashed almost daily - Wouldn't let me bang in one of meeting rooms - Had to stop seeing each other - We still talk often and hang out - Probably one of my closest friends since moving here Dating a coworker is fine as long as 1) She's not someone you work with on a daily basis 2) She's not your direct supervisor or subordinate 3) She mature/sensible enough not to create workplace drama if relationship ever goes south - Dated coworker for a few months - Smashed almost daily - Wouldn't let me bang in one of meeting rooms - Had to stop seeing each other - We still talk often and hang out - Probably one of my closest friends since moving here Dating a coworker is fine as long as 1) She's not someone you work with on a daily basis 2) She's not your direct supervisor or subordinate 3) She mature/sensible enough not to create workplace drama if relationship ever goes south LOLed at "wouldn't let me bang in one of meeting rooms." Sounds like it worked out okay though.
Better still, you'll be seeing them during the day, rather than just propping up a bar with them in the evening. Work together during the day, pop out for a quick drink after work, Bob's your uncle. Everything is in order, from stress-busting massage at the desk to on-site counselling, so why not pick a mate there too? Hinting that you would like to take things further but never being specific can make the whole relationship uncomfortable, especially if it's a boss/employee situation.Interoffice relationships should pretty much be banned, rather than frowned upon.People get themselves mixed up in these situations because we tend to spend the bulk of our days at the office. I’m thinking of those couples you see as you’re scrolling through your News Feed, “married 70 years” and all of their advice is typically the same – it’s going to suck but most of the time, not so much so they decide it’s worth sticking around. It’s a bit of trial and error and a lot of compromise, from what I do know.IT HAS been estimated that up to half of us meet our future partners through or at work, which makes it a significant venue for budding romance.
There are obvious plus points to meeting your partner at work: 1.
The last thing you want is for your philandering to fall victim to office gossip.
So, instead of offering up your relationship on a silver platter to the chatty Cathys of your cubicle, make sure you and your partner discuss logistics and really get a game plan together in order to avoid that painfully awkward and embarrassing conversation with your boss.
It's easy to develop a work crush, but how you handle it makes all the difference.
If your career is important to you, you should probably avoid this diabolical situation at all costs, as it can get very messy, very quickly.
The Chat-up: Fancying someone you work with is not a criminal offence and neither is asking them out. Are you in any danger of being accused of favouritism if you start to see each other outside work? When someone operates in this manner, it is difficult to know when to say "no, thank you".
