The Company’s Sexy Ink

I am not sure if you have all seen the news about David Letterman. In a nutshell, Ole’ Dave was dipping his pen in the company ink, repeatedly, for years.  I watched him reveal the story about a man attempting to extort money to keep the dirty secrets on the air.  It was extremely odd because the audience was laughing as he was recounting the ordeal, weaving in humor whenever he could.

I suppose it can be a cautionary tale about dating and sleeping with co-workers.  I doubt that someone with his public image will ever have true remorse about what he did.  I just wonder about the women that were involved.

When you work with people you tend to reach a level of comfort. If you don’t have boundaries, it would be easy to  cross the line and give in to the attraction you feel. It seems as if today’s society is more accepting of workplace romances. I know couples who openly date at work and it doesn’t seem to be problematic for them.

Have you ever dated a co-worker? Was it  a good experience or a nightmare?

If someone new started working in your company, would you pursue things if you were attracted to them right away?

Do you think there are ways to make dating a co-worker actually work for you? How do you avoid the drama in the office? What happens if the relationship doesn’t work out?

What do you think of Letterman’s revelation? How do you think he has handled the “scandal” of dipping his pen in the company ink?

Happy Wednesday!

the mere fact that i’m at work makes everyone there unappealing. perhaps i have some sort of subconscious “no-no” reflex going on.

Seems like a recipe for disaster to me. The only way I could see it working is if you don’t actually work that closely together — otherwise, I can see all kinds of problems, both at work and at home.

Then again, I’m a software engineer, so I’ve never had any really hot coworkers, anyway… :lol:

Good Morning All,

Yes, I dated a coworker and there was no drama at the workplace because as adults we left work at work and home at home. Work is where I make the money to provide me with the comfort and security of home. I do my level best not to let home get in the way of work or vice versa. When it didnt work out we moved on. No drama.

As for Dave’s revelation I think it was a great comeback to the attempt of an idiot. So what he screwed around on his wife. Up until the point he married her I believe after the birth of his son. They were just two people shacking up. Sometimes the best solution is the truth.

What happens if the relationship doesn’t work out?

That question right there is the main I avoided the workplace pens when I was dating. Ironically I tend to actually like the men that I allow myself to be in a relationship with. I would not be able to function as needed working daily with someone that I broke up with. Or he broke up with me. I like the out-of-sight out-of-mind way of doing things.

Another issue would be seeing each every single day and having to spend time together away from work. I imagine that could get tiring over time.

And last it could cause drama and tension dealing with other women flirting with him. Some being knowledgeable of the relationship I would imagine and some not. As we have discussed before we women can be ruthless and I would rather not deal with “man” issues at work.

There was one guy several years back that I would have dated for sure in a different environment. But yeah although office romances are fairly easy to come by I don’t think it is the smart thing to do.

I am 100 and 55% against dating at work! Some of the messiest investigations I have seen involved this matter and once the relationship was over and the woman was “jilted “ and the man did his “guy talk” we had a nasty sexual harassment claim.

Next I am old school to a certain degree. With the economy being what it is I would not want all my “eggs in one basket.” Where am I going with this notion? I would hate for my SO and me to experience a layoff at the same time.

BTW Dave handled this wonderfully he used his strengths (comedy) to share the bad news and guess what his ratings exploded!!!!

Ohhhh I forgot to mention this about dating at work. One of my male friends from college dated a young lady at his job. He worked in a huge building for a major corporation. Well the young lady worked in a different area and on a different floor so he was cool with getting to know her since they would never interact at work. Long story short he took her to lunch for the first date. She ordered three sandwiches, three chips and three sodas. When he inquired about this she mentioned one was for now, the other was for her dinner later and the third was for a coworker she owed lunch. Well he never took her out again, but he paid for all this junk (I would have yelled DUTCH) and she told everyone that he was a sucker! He thought other woman was hitting him on, but she had put it out that he was good for an easy lunch.

I think he was too ashamed to share this with folks, but since we were friends and my background he wanted to know how to handle this mess.

I don’t really think it’s a bad thing.

And, Dave was a rich bachelor, why wouldn’t he have consensual sex with women in his employ? “We covet most what we see everyday.”

I work at the airport which is like a big college campus. Dating among those that work together (although they may not work for the same company) is pretty much a given.

I hired Shthead at my company after we began our relationship. I would not ever do it again. I had to hear work, work, work all the damn time. Shortly after I ended things, he managed to get himself fired which was a HUGE SIGH OF RELIEF for me. (It was also proof to me that God answered the prayer I prayed of removing him totally from my life.)

Now that I’ve had that experience, not only will I not date anybody that I work with, I will not date anyone that works at the same place.

Office romance I have been their a few times, Fortunately this did not cause any issues with work after the break-up! Although some of my male co-workers were jealous that I was dating some of the young good looking ladies in the office.

Like Kym stated I believe you need to be mature about relationships work is work and home is home!

Good morning, I saw the story of Dave’s debachary and the humor he used to excuse it, I was in awe b/c his audience cheered him on which seemed to pumped him up even more. I saw nothing funny about having your affairs aired before millions and to top it off, making jokes about it. Two thumps down for Dave!

I’ve dated a co worker, I will never do that again, although it wasn’t a total nightmare, I walked on pins and needle until he left the company in fear of him spilling our dirty little secrets. Although everyone suspected something was going on, and yes some did pry, (people are so darn nosey) I didn’t utter a thing from my lips or gave any body gestures that would give anything away.

I’m a software engineer, so I’ve never had any really hot coworkers, anyway Swiss I can agree to that :lol: :lol: :lol:

Good morning…

This IMO is a no-no.

I think that it just isn’t practical. If things go bad, you have to be around that person. If things go well, you have the issue of no real diversification in money. My parent’s have neighbors who both worked at the Ford Plant in Hapeville. It closed and BOTH are without a job.

The other issue is that it can really get messy. I worked at one firm where a male co-worker met a female while on business trip. He got all Mark Sanford-like and said that the female was his “soulmate”. However, his wife who worked in Human Resources at the firm found out about it, and filed for divorce. Here is the messy part……Her attorney sent subpoenas to his whole department and to the workers that accompanied him on said business trip. I didn’t answer the subpoena, and was never called. However, it was a big hassle for me.

He ended up leaving the firm, and she still works there.

David Letterman broke at least 2 of the rules of engagement for workplace romances by having sex with female members of his staff. Yet other rules Letterman strictly observed.

To find out which rules Letterman broke, and which rules he followed, see the article entitled David Letterman Broke 2 Cardinal Rules Governing Workplace Romance at http://bit.ly/yhTMo You’ll find the complete list of the Rules of Engagement for Office Affairs and Workplace Romance.

Good point Elijah. Interaction or non-interaction with other co-workers is a great determining factor for dating someone in the office. You don’t want to date someone who is constantly divulging everything about your relationship to others in the workplace.

Yes, I have been romantically involved with a coworker. Although we rushed into the relationship (lots of chemistry), I cared very much for this person. It turned out to be a very painful experience and life-changing experience for me. Particularly since we continued to work on projects together. So all of these post-dating mixed messages he continued to send me (let’s go out…blah, blah blah), started to impact my ability to concentrate at work. As a result, I am very cautious about mixing business with one-on-one pleasure. I do and I will go out with groups of coworkers particularly if I am attracted to a coworker. I want to slowly interact with the coworker in a a “safe” group setting so that I can see how he acts outside of work, whether or not he is already involved in a relationship, whether or not he is interested in a long term relationship, etc.

As far as Dave L goes, I think it’s just plain sad all around. Sad for these young employee(s) (yes they were of age, but still inexperienced), for his wife, for their son, and even for Dave. Although this happened before he was married, it still happened while he was dating his now wife. How humiliating for her. Although I know adulterly happens, and that the media jumps on showing men of power who fall from their pedestals, the reason ratings are high for these stories is because it is wrong. People’s lives are destroyed by betrayal, broken promises. Do we really know whether or not people complained about sexual harrassment as Dave’s company, which is ironically named worldwide pants? He owned the company….so the buck stopped there.
I cannot imagine my father, brother in-laws, husbands of my friends EVER putting their own temporary pleasure ahead of what they are committed to: their wives, families, themselves.

I can see how office romance can be inevitable esp when you’re spending so much time together, doing lunch, dinner and sometimes happy hour, you tend to develop a relationship like no other. I recall reading an article about work spouse. I have work spouses all around me.

@Elijah I know you mentioned sitting back and watching the female to see how she interacts at work. Well some people have their PROfessionalism thingy going on and you don’t know that “shawty” will bust the windows out your car and for the ladies that man will tell all your secrets and stalk you. I have seen some of the best associates on the business side change when sex and love enters the picture. That is why I am so strongly against the whole dating thing at work.

Plus the person in the relationship with the LEAST interest carries the MOST power. Well that powerless person usually tries to get back at the person some kind of way. As HR I don’t like cleaning up the mess. Whew I just vented…sorry/

Have you ever dated a co-worker? Was it a good experience or a nightmare?

Good morning all.

Yes, I have dated a co-worker before. For me, it proved to be both a good experience and a nightmare. Of course the good at the time was the excitement of it all! The times that we would meet secretly in places around the building (I was in my 20’s at the time) for some afternoon delight! The possibility of getting caught always added fuel to the fire so it was great. There was also the nosey folks that suspected something but could never proof anything.

However, the nightmare came with the breakup. It is always hard to have to see someone everyday that you just want out of your life.

I can say without a doubt that the hard feelings that were the result of the relationship ending were much further reaching than the fun and excitement that was shared. I have never done it again and I can say that I never will!

I currently work for a company, where there is only one person that I get along with and am slightly attracted to. We are friends, so you know there are snide remarks about since since we really only interact with each other. In the end, we don’t care what others have to say. Sometimes this can be a hinderance on any office relationship.

I’m actually still with my guy and we started dating at work. And guess what…we’re still working together now…two years later. It doesn’t bother us at all actually. We work together and live together, you think we’d get tired of each other but as it stands right now we get along quite well. I guess it’s because we know that it won’t always be like this. I plan to stop working soon when I enter law school and he plans to move to another company since he’s just completed his Master’s. I know that it may not work for some, but it’s not impossible either.

Morning all

While I personally have never dated a co-worker, I wouldn’t call it a bad thing. I know people who work and live together and keep their personal business private while at work.. I think it can work for two individuals that are mature enough to handle the situation..

Personally I don’t think I would like having the constant interaction with 1 person. Working with you,riding home with you, walking in the door with you, eating dinner together, sleeping together, then waking up and doing it all over again 5 days a week. I think I would get tired of seeing that person.. Plus I like to miss a person.. its something about being at work (with all the b.s) then coming home or meeting up with your S/O.. seeing their face and everything else becoming irrelevant… If I was with you all day and night, when do I have time to miss you??

Dave has handled this thing brilliantly. The only leverage that the would be blackmailer had was taken away once Dave went public with his dastardly deeds himself.

Not only that, the blackmailer is still facing charges.

By doing what he did, Dave took back the power in the situation. Because in the end, I’m sure Dave could give a flying flip what any of us really think.

And if he does lose his show (which is highly unlikely), I’m sure he’s made enough money to last him the last 20 years of his life at this point.

I agree with the Professor on this one. I personally think it is a bad idea on multiple levels, from legal to personal space. Down at the “worker bee” level it may go without issues, but once you go up a few rungs on the corporate ladder it can be perilous. As I mentioned earlier in the week, I have seen several large checks written over the years because a boss got to banging his secretary and when the bloom was off the rose, the boss was stupid enough to try to get her cut from the company and the next thing you know representatives of “Dewey, Cheatem, and Howe” appear on the doorstep with a nice little legal document.

Offices sometimes/often are sexually charged and I’m no saint, I’ve been really tempted many times. I’ve flown really close to the flame several times, but that hour or two of passion can come with a very large price tag…especially when one or both have “other commitments”. There were many reasons why it was an actually written instruction in the Army’s Officer Handbook that “fraternization between officer and enlisted” was a no no.

Apparently he was very abusive and one of her coworkers who lived in the same apt complex knew this. Well this lady told him that she was having an affair with someone on the job. So he came to the job and slapped her down and proceeded to yell “where is John Doe at where he at.” Well no one said anything not even John and one of the managers finally told him I am going to have to ask you to leave and he cussed that guy out and left.

I don’t have anything against coworkers, but I do not date them nor am I friends with them. I became friends with some former coworkers AFTER I left the company. Being in HR I see too much back stabbing and other mess to trust anything outside of hello.

I have over 60 employees working for me and prolly 70-80% are females. At any given point I could hit 6-10 within a week.

@Grace she begged us not to call the police on him and said that she was ok and it was just a minor misunderstanding and that everything was ok. I told her she could leave early with pay and to call me when she was ready to return to work b/c I was ok with her taking a LOA. I went over her vacation time/personal time with her and if my memory is correct she had about 2 weeks of vacation time and a few personal days. I told her if she needed more we could work something out. She did not want to leave work, but eventually agreed to take the rest of the day off. I mentioned just going somewhere to have lunch and calling the EAP hotline. She came back the next day and we did notify the authorities as it related to trespassing (we did not want him back on the property), but she told me that this is personal and a small misunderstanding I am not going against my husband. I used to volunteer at a treatment facility so I saw the look in her face…she would have fought me before she talked to the po-po. I did let her know that we had a right to protect all associates and we operate in a safe environment. The police wrote a report and a letter was sent to him about staying off the property, but as far as I know they did not do anything about her being slapped…plus she left when I said I have to call the police…that is what made her leave early. I heard that he did not work.

Two words: Plausible deniability.

At work: professional to cold shoulder, acknowledging her in the same fashion as every other woman.

After work: NO PHOTOS!!! Leave no incriminating evidence (text messages, clothes, etc.)

All that leaves is the after work phone records which could be explained away if need be.

“Big Boss” always set himself to sign that blank check when he goes dipping his pen in the company ink. Women are deceitful and ruthless.

Look at our former POTUS Mr. Clinton. He didn’t have to write a check but look at what it nearly cost him. That little girl engaged in a sexual act with that man obviously with the intentions of using it against him later. Why would any woman keep and not wash a dress that a man she had some type of relations with deposited his fluids on? She was out to get him before she kneeled down in front of him.

I wrote my thoughts at my spot this morning about a statement that I heard last night while watching “I Think I Love My Wife”. Chris Rock’s character superior told him “A man can lose a lot of money chasing women, but will never lose women chasing money”. That statement IMO could very well apply to the “big boss” that play with the help.

Sometimes large companies are like college campuses and work place dating is quite prevalent. I’ve gone fishing in the work pond before and come out unscathed. One big problem is when you transfer for your job, meeting people outside of the work place is a real challenge and you find yourself attracted to your coworkers.

After about 3 mos she would extort him by either threatening to tell HR or his wife. Usually the perp would just pay up a few monthly stipends until she found another sucka. Sad but true.

@Grace she worked in the plant by the time her manager brought her to my office he was long gone. First off I was concerned about her safety and she was very content and did not seem upset, until I said we need to call the police. I knew she would not be able to continue her shift just think of the distraction, but she did not want to go home. When I said he can no longer come on our property and I was calling the police she bailed. I offered her a LOA because I knew she had to be embarrassed and quite frankly the economy was good…I figured she would take the time off and find another job and not come back. The police did ask for his name (I knew that from the emergency contact info) and they talked to her manager that really did not see much and the police did not make an effort.

We had theft incident there as well and the police did not do anything I had to have a meeting with someone higher on the totem pole to get some results.

Sure, some can handle office romances and some even marry, but for those that turn awkward, why take the gamble. Here’s my take on office romances. Although both parties go in as consenting adults, not all leave as consenting “adults.” The lustful exchanges, the intrigue of conference room trysts, the delight in believing the wool is being pooled over the eyes of many coworkers and the sheer excitement of role playing while at work is extremely stimulating. How exciting to come to work and do a “sharon stone” for your honey! How exciting to know you can sneak in a conf. room and lock the door for a quick nibble (your snack or just his snack). The mind is in overdrive and can help w/productivity, in the beginning.

Now, when all this salacious activity wanes and broken lunch dates are now the norm, bitterness surfaces and the workplace is no longer a pleasant place to be. The only agenda item now focuses upon making each others job unbearable. This takes too much energy. Start and finish as coworkers who respect each other and find romance outside of work because when it ends, it’s usually not pretty nor comfortable moving forward.

I am using the title manager loosely because this guy is an officer of the company. (I have not seen too many incidents at work where the police just take charge and starts arresting folks).

It was allowed because we were under two different departments and he was not my boss. Don’t let your job dictate your heart!!

Well, this went on for about 4 months, then we moved in together which made it even more difficult because he wanted to ride to work together, so we had to walk in at different times.:-) Well, to make a long story short after living together for 6 months he broke the news to me on my Birthday!!!

With regards to Dave Letterman, if you have to sneak and do it, it is obviously wrong. It has been reported that no one knew about his sex with the interns and other much younger women on his staff until this story broke. To me, the big issue with this story is the work place issues, not infidelity to a love one. (I don’t condone infidelity, but in this case, that part of the story is private, and between he and his girlfriend/wife). In most workplaces, a wife, husband, sibling, parent, child, etc. could not be in the same chain of command for good reasons. Therefore, if you are having sex with someone, and you have an opportunity for pillow talk, it is also a forbidden relationship in the workplace. Further, the women Dave slept with certainly were privy to information and favors that other people on the staff were not privy to, and accordingly, they had advantages for advancement that other employees did not have. Picture this, one of your co-workers is secretly having sex with your supervisor. You both are smart, diligent workers, and want to get promoted to the next higher level position. Which one of you do you think will get the next promotion in the company? Which one do you think your supervisor would give a glowing recommendation and a better performance appraisal? Which one of you would know well in advance when a promotion opportunity will be coming out? I think this scenario is all too common, and is more probable than not, happening to you without your knowledge.

In Letterman’s situation, I think the word “scandal” is a misnomer because nobody’s filed a complaint. He wasn’t married at the time nor is he a politician, so that takes the salacious edge off the situation for me, unlike Clinton, Sanford, Ensign, etc. I presume he’s handled the situation in his way to avoid embarrassment to his female co-workers.

I’ve dated a co-worker previously but it was a large office and we worked for different companies. It was discreet and fun and ended amicably, but my general view is that dating colleagues can be precarious. Quietly, I think you can date a co-worker but in only certain circumstances. The dynamics vary too much (aside from saying just don’t do it) to have the same rules to apply to every situation.

I think that if you decide to go that route, you should view your potential suitors with greater scrutiny than others outside the work environment and how you plan to handle the romance(on the low vs. out in the open) and make doubly sure everyone’s on the same page (relationship vs. FWB status, etc.), and that’s just for starters.

@Professor, I don’t have the same opinion when dating a vendor. I dated one. This nice looking dude would deliver office furniture to downtown Atlanta. I’ve seen him numerous times and his body always made my eyes pop and my mind to racing. Since there isn’t a shy bone in my body I introduced myself and told him about a party I was giving a girlfriend and was looking for a stripper. Haaaaa, not a good way to start a relationship, but that wasn’t my intent then. I did need a stripper. Well, he declined but gave me a number of someone else. A few months later, we started dating. Just to see that body outside of his uniform was pure d delightful. Turns out he was too needy! Too needy. I was working on my degree, had my own apartment and car and he was living in the basement of his mama’s house w/no car. We dated maybe 4 months. The first time he asked me for $$ (2 weeks after we started dating) was when I knew we wouldn’t be hanging together much longer. Nonetheless, starting out with asking him to be stripper at a party was the foundation this relationship was built on. It quickly became quicksand!

Enter your comments hereNothing wrong with a workplace romance, just know what it is. A trip into the taboo, they tend to last 4-6 months. One person gets to coozy, the other continues to have anxiety about the relationship itself and its possible effect on his/her career. The career focused employee will eventually pull away from the situation due its parameters. The relationship hits a point where it could be significant and he/she has to pull out because its not easy as easy to supress the relationship as it was in the first 3 months.

He was very cordial to her and she asked him out for drinks, well he stood her up “no call no show.” Monday morning when he came in to finish up his job she made a spectacle saying why you didn’t call me and all this other ish. At the time, my manager asked this guy manager to remove him from working on the project. I really felt that was unfair. My manager told me that since this was a vendor and we were paying them he was not going to deal with it and the easiest thing to do was let them know the guy could not comeback.

When considering an office “engagement” it is a good time to ask the following question:

In light of my PAST experience, my PRESENT circumstances, and my FUTURE goals and dreams, is this the WISE thing to do?

A really wise client of mine many years ago amde an excellent observation once. I called him with a product I really thought he should buy. He listened patiently and then said this,
“this is probably a once in a lifetime opportunity…but in my life I have noticed that once in a lifetime opportunities seem to come along about once a week”.

His point is that there will always be another “opportunity” right around the corner, and I have said before “sex is easy” here in the ATL, every day. So again…is this the “wise thing to do”?

okay I have dated people that work in the same building as myself and that seems to not be a problem. I did go against my better judgement and dated a guy that was in my same dept (he was only there for about 3 wks). He became my ex-hubby. No need to elaborate! :smile:

Now I have 2 former co-workers that dated and married each other. Our rules wouldnt allow them to continue to work in the same group so he took another job within the company.

Raqi’s Random Thoughts

1. Being happy in a relationship does not mean getting all the time what you want but being happy is appreciating what you get.

2. In relationships we tend to dote on the “most” important days such as Birthdays, Anniversary and Christmas to remember and do something nice for the one we love. But I am proud to admit to realizing this day that “today” is the most important day in your relationships.

Why put off ‘til tomorrow the pleasure you can bestow today.

I had sex for the first time when I 19 and ended up marrying the young man. There was a lot that I did not know and although my mother taught me about sex there were something that I would not dare ask her, so I went to my sister. My sister had a lot more experience than I had and at the time she was not married. She helped me out a lot.

I had friends that had had sex but I couldn’t put 100 on what they might have told me. I trusted my sister to shoot straight when it came to certain things.

3. The dryer has shrunk every last pair of your jeans.

4. Your husband is suddenly agreeing to everything you say.

5. You are using your cellular phone to dial up every bumpersticker that says, “How’s my driving- call 1-800-***-****.

6. Everyone’s head looks like an invitation to batting practice.

7. You’re convinced there’s a God and he’s male.

8. You’re counting down the days until menopause.

9. You’re sure that everyone is scheming to drive you crazy.

10. The ibuprofen bottle is empty and you bought it yesterday.

His eyes are the color of melted chocolate.
His skin is cocoa butter smooth.
He makes me tremble with delight as he plants kisses down my spine.

@Raqi-thumbs down on the lingerie football, not sexy at all, can’t mix sex with evrything.

just like b4 topic is done by noon, then everybody just talk ish…cool

on the afraid of success topic…i’m not sure that is the case for most, but to be successful you have go balls to the wall, many if not most find a way to let life catch’em with the balls out, they not quite on the wall yet and then competing priorities takeover. Dream stays alive, but that real life stuff is going on right now.

Not now, but right now (said in grandpa’s old southern accent)

By touching my soul, he touches my body in ways that I’ve never known it could be touched.
My fountain flows with the slightest touch of his hand and the faintest brush of his lips.
I close my eyes and fall into his lake of promises.

I look with new eyes at the picture his words paint before me.
When I would retreat behind the barriers set to protect me from vulnerability,
He knocks down walls and holds my hand and lets me see into his soul.

Together, we sit on the floor of my soul,
Turning our faces to the sun,
Dreaming dreams of a shared future
And I am no longer dying on the inside.

Your Love has me Jonesin’
And it’s my heart that you’re owning
When you softly whisper my name.
I know this ish is real
Cause it’s too good what I feel
And nobody’s playing any games.
So I keep my head to the sky
No longer wondering why
Real love would not visit my heart.
God sent me a man
Who put me in his plan
And all I have to do is my part.

I met my husband at work. We dated discretely for almost one year. We decided to get married and notified the appropriate personnel. That’s when all heck broke loose. I was alienated from other coworkers; not invited to parties; and one employee even told me that I couldn’t be trusted because I kept my relationship a secret. My time at that company has ended.

BTW- Neither one of us was a manager or reported to the same management team. I guess he legally dipped his ink!
