Sixty-six percent of workers don't feel the need to keep their romances a secret these days.
Just three years ago the same survey found only 53 percent of workers felt they could be open about their workplace romances.
What if you two break up but still have to see each other every single day?
What if you get in a fight while you’re working and cause tons of drama?
Being in a relationship where someone knows those demands and how that can likely impact time and availability is vital for any kind of relationship growth.
People inherently understand and are attracted to others who “understand” that part of their life.”Another draw of getting involved with a co-worker is the excitement coupled with the “safety” of dating somebody you’ve already gotten to know.
But is adding a bit of excitement to your work life worth the risk?
Today, however, workers aren't afraid to admit that, in addition to a paycheck, they're also looking for love at the office. " Those are questions I'm frequently asked when I tell people the story of my office romance.Before you risk hurting your reputation at work, find out if this person is someone you'd want to spend weekends with. People either don't care, will think it's obnoxious or inappropriate, or will get jealous. Once you have a sense that this might have a future, talk to your partner and decide how and when you want to disclose your relationships to your colleagues."No one wants to hear about how deeply you're in love with each other or where you went last weekend or the fight you had in the car this morning," she explains. Again — nobody wants or needs to know about what's happening with your love life.Dating someone you work with can be super tricky – not just for you and your boo, but also for your co-workers and boss.
