We have been together 14 years.” “I’m dating my coworker from my last job.It pretty much went from being coworkers to starting to hang out after work a couple of times, and took off from there, but only after I left for a different job, which had nothing to do with wanting to pursue a relationship with him.While meeting someone at work can be great for your social life, it can be like a train wreck as far as your career is concerned. Before you know it, you are fully immersed in a liaison with a colleague.When you are thinking logically, you know you should avoid an office romance. If you end up in this situation, these rules cab help you minimize the impact it has on your career.Mixing work and romance has the potential to get awkward quickly, but plenty of people do date and even ultimately marry coworkers.
During a coworker outing a couple months after I met him (no bosses, only young entry-level people), we got really drunk and ended up making out in front of everyone. We kept it very quiet for the first two months, but everyone knows now and they’re happy for us.
We had amazing sex, and I was FLOORED at the difference in being with someone with so much experience.
I stop only when I start to hear her laughing on the other end of the phone. We’ve been married for ten years.” via GIPHY “I worked for a nationwide company and had a bit of a romance with a much older man (he was 63, I was 33). One evening all the staff were staying at a local hotel, and I snuck up to his room.
We dated for about three months, then I, as civilly as possibly, broke it off between us.
Just wasn’t working out, but I was hoping we’d still be professional about it at work.
