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?

I used to imagine myself as the wicked witch of the east from ‘The Wizard of Oz’, cause had I been, Dorothy would have made it back to Kansas, but she would have been broken up into 11 or more pieces after I was finished with her.

Good Afternoon Folks!

Disco…U sure know how to attract some winners, with all that good luck you should give me and 2C a shot! hehehehehe!

Reio….I like dem butts big and juicy too! Although lately I have dealt with some average bootey, time to go big! lol

Office romance I have participated in the past, but during the past 5 years I have avoided the ladies. It would have been mostly hit and run type situations but they were not an 8 or above…

durty – did I mention the little boy that tried to holler at me at the gym? I guess he was early 20s. I told him I had a son his age. he said he didn’t care, he wasn’t my son, blah blah blah. I ended up telling him it couldn’t be because I didn’t want to have to beat his mother up. he didn’t get it but I got it. I will not be “that” old heffa. lol.

On ‘BeWitched’ Samantha(Elizabeth Montgomery) could’ve done whatever she wanted to do to me. Also, her daughter, little Tabitha, had some pretty legs that I wanted to rub on too. No sh!t.

“Alrighty then….I’m gone back to work (and calling DFACS)”

Go ahead and call’em. I won’t deny it. Tabitha was a baby, but I wasn’t much older. But I still remember wanting to test her out, once I finished with her mom.

Not only that, but granny Clampett was kinda spry for her age. Good thing she never came my way.
I would’ve eaten more than them possum inerts she liked to cook. Jus sayin.

One more thing; I always wondered what Oprah Winfrey’s little thang down there smelled like. I’ll bet the average temterature in it is above 610 degrees Fahrenheit. No doubt.
