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!

A smart man learns from his mistakes. A wise man learns from the mistakes of others.

Good night everyone!

I think you guys got it all wrong. Delkab COO had an affair with Dana Trabue, he is MARRIED and ended the affair last month. She got mad and reported the affair to the CEO because in her words, she wanted to “exposed his actions”.

She was probably mad that he did stop the affair, she was bitter that he wanted to stay with his wife and she reported the whole story to the CEO because she wanted to make him pay.

This woman is evil and it’s a matter of time before she gets what she deserves, she should be fired the very same way he was fired. Unless she is now sleeping with another Dekalb officer? Who knows, this woman is known to be a groupie, sleeping with rappers and everyone who has a “high” position.

She is a BIG mess.

So before everyone judges Keith Barker, please take a look at the low down mistress and the reason why she exposed him. She is a big disgrace!!!

Been there, fell in love, we both were let go, we moved on, still dated, traveled the world while at same office, people were jealous and eventually we split. i don’t think office had anything to do with it. If it works, it works!!

I just peaked in for a second. I got quite a bit to do today. I am taking a mentee to Dragon Con so I will be in and out of that madhouse this evening. I got other things to get done, too.

Tomorrow downtown Atlanta is will be crazy with DragonCon and the Chick-fil-a kick off classic. ESPN college gameday will be either in Centeninal Olympic Park or the GA dome.

One more thing, South Carolina looked pretty good last night!

@Poppa G yeah I know he is just injury prone period. I know Coach T is looking at Dixon..but I would feel better with Charlie B in there. He’s a vet and he started for us the year after the Superbowl and Ben bashed his head in on the pavement. We won that game. But if Coach is going with Dixon then lets do it! By the way GSU Panthers won our first football game!! I am soooo proud..I think I am going to be heading to our homecoming..buy me and the boy a few GSU football shirts!
