Office Romance: 7 Rules for Dating Your Coworker
It's astonishing how much time we spend at work. Think about it. Most of us work over 40 hours a week. You add commuting time and the days we work from home and that's a big chunk of our week. It's no wonder co-workers begin to look enticing. We spend hours upon hours engaging and collaborating. That dynamic can soon turn to flirting. I know it first hand. I dated two co-workers in the past. The first I met through my nonprofit job. He was part of the Junior Board. He often went to fundraising events that I had to work. My role as Education Coordinator was to schmooze for funds. When I saw him, I thought he was cute and so I schmoozed extra hard. We began dating secretly. When we were in an actual relationship, we were much more open with staff and board members. Still, it was challenging. Dating a coworker can cause drama and sometimes even one's job. The second guy I dated was my co-worker when I was a teacher. Let's just say it was harder to hide our fling because kids see all. We got in trouble. And it did cost me a job. I left willingly, but I could no longer work in that environment. Everyone knew and there was chaos. It was bad for all. So, take it from me when I say dating a co-worker isn't easy. You need guidelines and restraint. Click through for 7 rules for dating your coworker! -By Sujeiry Gonzalez
