With more people spending more hours in the office, it's become less taboo to date someone you meet through work (provided you follow your job's rules on the matter). Sometimes the new cutie around the cube catches your eye and other times a crush slowly develops over department meetings, team projects and late night coffee runs.
I'll never say never, but I don't think I could date a coworker. I mean what if we get into a huge fight or break up while we're still working together? Talk about "kill me now" Monday through Friday. Then there's the temptation to swing by his desk to chat...or grab him by the tie and pull him into the nearest supply closet for some, um, Post-its. Gotta love those Post-its.
Anyway, yeah. My productivity would seriously plummet either way.
But then my little ban also extends to people who work in my building, are tied to anything that I work on and anybody I meet through work events. So basically I just slashed off about 90% of the male population I come across.
Am I being silly? Would you ever date a coworker or someone you met through work?
