So my boss was talking to me the other day and randomly said to me and the guy that I'm friends with (we're really close, more than friends but not in a relationship...although we probably will be soon)
"Yeah, I don't care if employees date, I'd just want to know about it that way in case in the future things go sour, I can separate them."
My boss doesn't know that I "talk" to this guy like that...He thinks we are really good friends actually. Or so I thought...Maybe it's a little more obvious than we thought it was.
Anyways, I was wondering, do you feel like dating a coworker is okay? My manager told me that he once hired 2 sets of people that worked together and ended up getting married...
Or do you think it will be a BIG fat mess?
I surely hope not, but please be honest with me in your thoughts.

As long as your company allows it (a lot don't allow bosses to date co-workers lower on the company ladder), it's fine. Even in retail.
BUT you need to understand and be ready for if things don't work out. It's happened twice to me. One of them was awkward as hell for me because we worked the same shifts so I had to end up transferring.
Also, NEVER mix business with pleasure. I mean, don't act like a couple at work as it will lead to gossip (retail gossip spreads like wildfire) and a few upset people. Not to mention, it'll be a distraction.
So keep it mature and be wary of the possibilities if it doesn't work out and you'll be fine. Good luck.1
