Problems to dating a co worker
Despite the many advancements society has made, there’s still a bit of cultural stigma surrounding workplace romance and it’s not just limited to adulterous affairs (we’ll get to that later on).
And while that’s perfectly normal when you’re in separate industries, it can be a problem when you’re working together, essentially damaging your reputation as a respected professional.
But now that you’re sharing straws and holding hands, it’s become a bit challenging to give honest and, sometimes harsh, feedback on each other’s work.
It comes with the territory and romantic connections cultivated in the workplace are no exception.
You spend one too many nights doing overtime with a co-worker and in the midst of bonding over your mutual dislike for your bad boss while flirting, err, fighting over the last few slices of pizza, it suddenly hits you: you’re in love.
Before you panic and swear off watching Jerry Maguire forever, first – breathe deep, relax and know that office romances happen more often than you think.
