  • Hmmm, it depends on if it's against company rules. If it's not, I would think about how long I'm going to work there, if we're on the same shift, the same floor, etc.

    If I wouldn't be around them often, ex. worked on level 2, I'm on level 1, yea, I might if I really liked him.

  • Dating at work has always been a big no-no for me. There was two guys who liked me at a job I used to have and after one awkward date with the one and turning down them both working with them got really weird.

    • Why weird?

    • Show All
    • How would the first guy treat you like crap? And how would he act hurt?

    • Treating me like crap:
      He would toss things at me or spray me with water if I went through the back to get something, he took my phone once, and since we were part of the same group of friends at work he kind of tried to get them to dislike me.
      Then half the other time he would act all awkward with this sad puppy dog look on his face when he came by to get my bins.

  • Nope.

    If things don't work out, it'll be awkward.

  • Unfortunately definitely not. Even if that significantly diminshes my chances of dating in general - because I don't socialize often outside of work. Nope. It would be extremely unprofessional and just awkward.

    • What if your current boyfriend was your coworker, would you go for him?

    • I don't like the thought of mixing business and personal together. I don't know. I would date a coworker.. Like what happens if things don't work well? 😐 You go into work and see her/him and it's awkward as 😓

  • Simple answer! HELL NAW!

  • I had a thing with a coworker once. I would advise against it.

    • What happened?

    • It was purely physical. He was about 14 years younger than me... which didn't help. I think he just wanted to mark of his list of being with an older woman.. which was fine with me. I didn't want a serious relationship with someone so much younger. The problem is now it is awkward like in meeting and just hanging around the office. Nothing can be the same after you see each other naked. This was about 3 years ago.

  • Wouldn't be opposed to it. It would be dumb to let true love (possibly) slide just because we happen to work together.

    • Do you agree with Dodgergms answer?

    • You can hang out with a person outside of the office too though

    • @Mesonfielde Hanging out once in a while is not a problem, you have to be considerate and talk to everyone, it is common. But having a relationship is a no go, it is very dangerous, in my opinion.

  • Yes, why not

    • Well what dodgersgm says does have merit to it, you dont see it that way?

    • Show All
    • Well if it doednt go well you'll still have to see and work with the guy afterwards which could be very awkward. You can deal with that?

    • Of course... It's awkard only if you cheat on your coworker or the other ways.
      After you just being coworker like before.

  • I've seen it work before and it worked for them just fine

    Honestly, you just need two individuals who don't have drama over non-drama literally anywhere and anytime.

    So I voted C). The issue is the mutual co-workers who prey upon your every step because they apparently don't have anything better to do.

  • That's one of the few rules in dating I have. But hey, not saying it's a rule I may not break down the road, who knows. In my line of work, in the office most people are fat lol so there's not much temptation.

  • Yes, if you categorically refuse to date coworkers you are usually closing off the biggest source of potential partners in your life. Coworkers are also more likely to have similar interests and goals and you know what they're really like/can get to know them more slowly.

  • I'd rather avoid it if possible, because if we ever broke up, I'd probably have to get a different job.

    But I guess you can't really help who you love, and if I had enough faith that it would work out - I'd go for it.
