Jeni Elizabeth, a 33-year-old stylist in Los Angeles, met her now-husband at work and says she was extremely hesitant to date a coworker.
“here are always jealous or nasty people who want to cause trouble.
If you are currently dating a coworker — or considering dating a coworker — there are a few rules to keep in mind; seven rules to be exact. Think about how you would feel if you found out your significant other was sneaking around behind your back.
And, as with many secrets, things have a way of coming out.
There were tons of people who said we would make a cute couple, not knowing we already were.
Regardless of whether you share the news of your relationship with your coworkers, be careful not to let work spill into your private time together, and vice versa.
With all that time at the office, you would hope that at least SOME of those grueling hours could be punctuated by some fun.
Hence, workplace romances are anything but uncommon.
71 percent of guys said they would do it again if they had the chance, while 43 percent of women would do it over.
In an effort to lower the percentage of women who regret hooking up with or dating a coworker, I figured I’d ask three real women who’ve done it to find out their advice for making it work (not to mention what they wish they’d known to avoid).
“We kept our involvement a secret for a long time, because we were worried what our clients, colleagues, and managers would think, but once we told them, they were so incredibly supportive and happy for us, it was a huge weight off our shoulders.” That doesn’t mean you should go around spilling details to everyone (discretion goes a long way, even if you’re being honest), but it also means you shouldn’t automatically assume the worst will come from opening up about your romance.
