Hi, I'm looking for peoples' experiences when they've dated coworkers.. either before, during or after the relationship.
And don't tell me not to, I already know it's not the best idea. That's not what I'm asking this question for.
I just want experiences.

This is a common subject. People always ask questions about getting together with co-workers, or even worse, Bosses.
This is a terrible idea.
Because, everyone will talk about this. No, you cannot keep it a secret. Everyone knows "who's doing who". People can see the subtle looks, body language, etc. People will talk about you, in some cases, negatively, because they know it isn't cool.
If the 2 parties are overt in their relationship, it creates a nonprofessional environment, which can lead to difficulties with the bosses.
If it IS a boss, then problems with the next level of management may occur. Rumors are worse. "Look who's sleeping themselves upward".. on and on.
THEN, if the relationship fails. What then? Well, the talk gets worse. The two parties themselves may talk poorly about the other person. Rumors are started. True or false, a bad environment ensues.
Nothing good becomes of this.

Most relationships fail, so it's usually not a good idea, especially if you have to see them all the time after your break-up. Anyway, you can always attempt it if you want.0
