Was at work the other day and someone comes up to me and said
(name omitted) wants your phone number.
While I told her that I am kind of talking to someone else, nothings official. So we exchanged numbers later.
The thing with the original girl might have ended and this coworker is clearly interested in me.
So what are your thoughts? My own parents were coworkers and have been married for 20+ years now. But I've also heard a lot of horror stories of couples who were coworkers and who break up. So I'm on the fence. What are all your thoughts. I've always understood the saying "don't **** where you eat" because that makes a lot of sense.

Again like others have said, it depends. Depends on the people but also what kind of workplace it is. If you're working at Subway or something I wouldn't care at all. If it's a coworker whose cubicle is right next to yours every day, I can see that being a problem because you wouldn't ever be apart, plus HR might not like it.
I actually am in a serious relationship with a guy who works at the same company as me... we went to school together but officially "met" at a work event. He doesn't work in the same department though, so we never interact for work at all. I think that's why it's alright for us. Also our workplace is super laid back and family oriented, there are quite a few married couples that work at the same place, etc., so they can't really get mad about us dating.
Anyway for practical advice: get to know the girl better first, if she's crazy then no for sure don't. And definitely don't just hook up and then stop texting her, that would get awkward since you work together. If you think you're both going to be mature about it, dating could work. Maybe hang out and ask her what she thinks about it since you're coworkers? Maybe she's wondering if it's ok, too.1
