Office Nomance

Are Office Romance's really that bad? The answer is ?..it depends on the individual.

The key to success in an office romance is accepting the reality of the situation. Some relationship experts say if you engage in this type of relationship, you should keep it on the hush hush and keep it professional. In a utopian office environment that might work but when emotions are involved, people tend to stray from such principles. So, I say accept from the get go if you become intimate with each other that it will leak out to the corporate environment; the corporate eyes are omnipotent and eventually gossip and rumors will spread quicker than wildfire.

For example, at my job, a female co-worker who had recently broken up with a fellow co-worker revealed to me his inadequacies in the bedroom and how he was the biggest loser she had ever dated. Now, if she told me this personal information and we were just associates, imagine who else she told at our organization.

The point is arm yourself with the foresight of the potential consequence of an office relationship. Once you're accepting of this awareness and your okay with it, proceed on to your newly blossoming office relationship. Like my friend says the only two things that can happen in a relationship is you either break up or worst you get married. If the reality that your personal business might be exposed and put on display daunts you then you should probably refrain from the office romance.

In the end, it's your choice, you have to dig deep, look within yourself and make a decision that aligns with your values.
