Office romance really a bad idea?

I have met at least 3 couples who say that they met at work.  What gives!?  I know that dating co-workers has the potential for all sorts of drama, but does that mean office romance is really a bad idea?

I believe that there are some people who can actually pull it off.  Most of us don’t go into the office planning to fall head over heels in love.   It can happen in a totally organic way and before you know it, you can’t stop thinking of the person.  So what is the best way to handle it?

Would you consider getting involved with a co-worker?  Have you tried it before? Do you have any advice for someone who was embarking on a new romance with someone at work?

What concerns would you have about office romance?  I mean, honestly, what is the worst that could happen!

@blue ~ naw, he only wants me to hike my dress up so he can see my legs.

Caribbean Festival at Phantersville Stadium noon-11pm. $5 for children and $10 for adults (I think).

@blue ~ I had some good times at a reggae club.

Blue she thought it was a cute light answer but with 100 employees 93 being male that’s a real concern, there have been divorces and other conflicts caused in the past by “the cute new girl” sad but true

Primal, Royal Peacock and Caribbean Festival..thanx Ladies, will think about inviting him once he’s out of the doghouse….
@Princess – yeah, i could def see that as a concern. seems like folks dont really think about how these answers, along with lots of other things, appear in the whole process of looking for a job. called one applicant once, they had a ringback saying something like “Hey Bytch, i know you there, pick up the d@mn phone”….i just hung up and went to the next candidate on the list….
@Leggs – i was understanding the shoes, sometimes thats what im looking at when we go out too, like “honey, could you go steal those right there for me….”

I hear you loudly and clearly, SimpleMan.

@SassyMe ~ I didn’t know it was opening back up…you say there’s going to be something going on this Sunday. Email me with what you know. Do you still have my address?

@blue ~ yes indeed…guess shoes and shows both fit because I’m always looking at shoes

I’m going straight to the vendor selling curry goat, rice and peas! I can hardly wait.

I may still have it but since I actively use two different accounts send me your info to whitemahogany@hotmail.com. From what I’ve heard on 89.3(WRFG) one of the Rasta’s are putting it together….there’s a reggae show that comes on either at 2 or 3 and that’s where I heard about it. The radio station probably has a website,too but I don’t know what it is, though. Either way email me…

The site is not that accurate. I put in my dad’s and oldest brother’s name and the site says there is 1 or fewer with that name. I know for a fact that there are 3. My dad, my brother and my brother’s son.

Hi,

I am dating someone in my office now. We work on different floors and departments. We don’t really run into each others unless heading in/out of work or lunch. He never visits me at work and vice versa. We say hello in passing but I do that anyway. If we broke up tomorrow no one in my office would know.
