Office romance: good, bad, and the ugly

Considering the amount of time many of us spend at work, it is not a surprise when romance enters the picture. I believe dating your co-workers is probably one of the riskiest moves a person can make. There is potential for a lot of drama and if things don’t work out, you are left to carry the burden of your bad romance in the office.

I have heard of couples who say that dating someone at work was the only way they were ever going to find anyone. I have also witnessed a really bad break up among co-workers. Worst case scenario has to be the couple who literally got into a physical fight when one dumped the other.

Do you think that dating a co-worker is appropriate? What if the person was your boss?

What are the pros and cons of dating at work? What are some tips would you give on office romance?

2C – with the exception of whitley, not a bad list. she irked me more often than not. I think the only role I ever really appreciated her in was stompin at the savoy.

2C — I had a little pre-teen crush on Tootie, myself. Taraji is cute. Never cared much for Whitley (whatever her real name is). Kerry Washington used to do it for me before she got too scrawny…

Plus, Kerry’s face looks different now, too. I can’t tell if it’s just because she lost too much weight or if she’s had jobs done. Probably both. But she looked way better before…

2C — You’re talking about Whitley on “A Different World,” right? That wasn’t Kim Fields. That was Jasmine Guy.

Speaking of “A Different World” though — I used to think Lisa Bonet was hot. Then I saw “Angel Heart” and couldn’t get past the image of Mickey Rourke all over her. Killed it for me. lol

I used to have a little thing going for Cindy from The Brady Bunch. Her big sister Jan could have sat in my lap too, if she wanted, as well. Marsha was too old for me back then though.

If she prepared them lamb chops she was always cooking, the way I like them, I probably would have found time to bend her over as well.

I work at the airport – as most of you well know. “Office” romances run rampant and get quite messy.

This is little more than a big o’ high school campus around this piece.

The biggest issues usually stem from rumors of who’s been “run through.”

Proly a good thing I couldn’t get my hands on Cindy Brady though. Cause I’d still be serving time for what I wanted to do to her. Even though I didn’t understand what I was feelin, I would have tried something. Anything.

Button – Laura(Melissa Gilbert) could have done anything she wanted to, to me. Hell, I would have licked them big azz boots she used to wear if she would have let me. Her big sister Mary(Melissa Sue Anderson) could have sat on my face for 18 days and 18 nights if she felt inclined to do. Jus sayin.

@MrsSexyCool my ex-boyfriend’s BIL used to work at the airport years ago for the same company I work for and he said that it was messy as well. He said there was a husband and wife that worked there and she was cheating on him with the supervisor and everyone knew and supervisor used to deny the husband’s time off so he would have to work while they were doing the grown up…… BIL said just because of that foolishness he quit it was too much goingz on.
