Most Helpful Opinions
If you want to date them, then either find another job or if you will date them while both working there, know that one or both of your jobs are temporary. The fact is, most relationships fail. And if you're dating someone you see at work every day, because you will if you are coworkers, and you see them when you come home every day, the problem is when you fight. You will be mad at each other when leaving for work, mad at each other while at work, and mad at each other when you get home. You won't have any time apart to cool down. Also if one of you gets promoted, then that person is in an authority position over their SO, which is never a healthy relationship. I've only seen it work with doctors and secretaries (and only after they start dating). When your SO is your superior you can get promoted, demoted, or reassigned based on their whims. You never know the exact reason.0
I know you're not supposed to, but I literally choose what place to work by what women are there, lol.
In my defence I used to work out in the Canadian oilfields as a young man where there were no girls for a hundred miles sometimes and I promised myself that my next job would have women there.13
I have. Would have to depend on the professionalism and a work to life balance. Don’t want to be in an argument and that transfer over to work. I didn’t bring the relationship anywhere in the company. Yes we would talk and stuff, but not like having our hands all over each other. I’m hoping one of my old coworkers from my last job comes around. Fingers crossed on that.0
What Girls & Guys Said
I dated, and married, my co-worker. 20 years later, after 3 kids, we amicably divorced.0
It’s not bad as long as you have boundaries and keep your work and romantic relationship the way it should be. I know people who met through work and ended up getting married. I think most places you can date a coworker just not a supervisor or manager.10
I would if I really liked the guy. I wouldn't just date a bunch of coworkers for the sake of dating. I most certainly would not sleep with coworkers with little to no feelings about them, at all. But there have been a few relationships at my workplace and they are all still together. Some within the department some outside. But a good portion of them have gotten married.0
I have in the past, definitely gotta have boundaries and not partake in shenanigans at work though. As it ended badly for me. Lol. I was young, fresh out of highschool, working as a housekeeper at upscale hotel. I started dating a girl who was also a housekeeper there and we would sometimes fool around in the rooms. Long story short, we lost our jobs and the relationship fizzled out not long after.0
I’m not sure if it counts but I’ve been with my partner for almost 2 years and I started working at his job 6 months ago, so technically I’m dating my coworker.. lol.0
No there's to many relationships that doesn't work. I don't want an pissed Ex as a coworker. You need to have the ability to distance yourself, and you don't want to have to change work for that.0
I would if she looked like that gorgeous lady in the picture lmao But generally, no, it's too much headache if we split up.0
Made this mistake in my youth. I advise steering clear of work colleagues.0
No no no no no, that sounds like a recipe for disaster. I'm not one to mix personal and professional parts of my life together.12
Yes but make sure it’s long term or smth serious because if it’s just for fun they might give you a problem if they start to hate you. You never know..0
I'm freelance and bounce from gig to gig - I often fucked a colleague or two at every contract and easily upped my tally to 150+ women then
Some were married yet unhappy, so I was happy to be their escape0
No, if it ever went sideways it would be bad.0
Not only did I date a coworker but I married her 30 years ago0
Yes I would but would be better not to because of all the after drama of rejection/break up.0
I WOULD, but if we weren't working the same shift because I feel that would be awkward.0
It would depend on how closely we worked together.0
I have done in the past but I definitely would not recommend it.0
Unlikely we had to change jobs then. I ain't stayin with somebody the whole day.0
For people who say yes it only takes one time where it all goes downhill to see its a bad idea.0
No. I don't feel the same towards it anymore. I'd rather my guy be found outside of work0
Depends if both people can maintain professional boundaries at work, and have known each other a long time and well enough to assess whether they are a good long-term match.
The down side is if both people break up you have the awkwardness of seeing each other at work and working together still.
It happened to my co-workers were 1 person cheated and they had to work together still. In the end they both quit their jobs and moved on.
So there is risk. Personally I wouldn't unless for the reasons I stated initially
