How to Date a Co-Worker | MOREOn September 5, 2019 by Raul Dinwiddie
Don’t do it. Don’t date somebody at work.
I think it’s important to keep your professional life and your personal life separate, but
I know that there’s certain industries that you really aren’t able to do that. And if
your job doesn’t have a policy around not dating each other, maybe they should have
one. Cause then you were like, oh hey, I’ve seen you naked. Oh, hey. You’re going to let
this person in to personal aspects of yourself. Do you want the office to know of those things?
Are there inside jokes that you don’t want the office to know about? Or you can end up
with a boyfriend from work like I did. For a couple years. If you are set on dating someone
at the workplace, know the boundaries, know the rules. Have a rule list between you guys.
Talk about these things. Do you want people to know? And if people do know, how do you
want to have that conversation with them? I just pretended that I wasn’t dating. Like
I just pretended that it wasn’t happening. I was just like oh hey see you later, you
know and then like you walk a couple of blocks away from the building and you’re like. I
would say probably no PDA in the workplace, you might get fired. And it looks unprofessional.
People figure it out at work though. It’s like little things where you’re like talking
about a joke or whatever. You like laugh about, remember last night when you. Consider the
people around you in your office. Would they look at this relationship as a conflict of
interest? Unless you know that the guy or girl is super awesome and worth it, don’t
do it. I just prefer stalking. King.
