When you work with someone, you have a window into how they handle daily challenges.
From little hiccups to full-scale office pandemonium, you get a sense of whether someone is the calm in the storm or a part of the madness. Your coworkers have already been "interviewed" Have you ever wished that someone else could go on blind dates for you and screen out the crazies? After all, if a coworker made the cut with HR you know they've been thoroughly vetted. You'll have better odds than at your local bar Hitting up happy hour or spending your night on an online dating site isn't always the easiest way to meet new people.
At least in normal life, if you look at the person you thought you’d marry and suddenly realize that you can’t stand the sight of them, you can just break up.
But when this person is a work colleague, you may still have to maintain a professional relationship no matter how badly things end.
Poll just about any office, and you’re likely to hear at least one story (if not more) of workplace dating that went awry.
What’s worse, the fallout from these failed office romances can be far more brutal than a run-of-the-mill relationship.
Dating someone you work with has its challenges, but -- assuming your workplace allows it -- we think it can be a great idea. Your shared passion at work can blossom into something bigger Your ideal job is probably one that you're deeply passionate about.
That allows everyone to preserve their privacy in a realm where they probably want it and keeps real-world awkwardness to a minimum.Despite all the cautionary tales regarding the dangers of office romance, countless employees wind up in relationships with co-workers every year.And as you might expect when two people try to maintain both a business and emotional relationship – while spending virtually every waking hour together keeping the whole thing a secret – workplace dating often ends in tears.I’ve occasionally seen people argue for sending the other person a message within the app, saying something bland like, “Hey, fun to see you on here too” … It puts the other person in a situation where they have to wonder if you’re hitting on them (it’s a dating app, after all) and, even if that doesn’t happen, it’s likely to increase the amount of awkwardness.A polite blindness to their presence there is the way to go.
