Should I Date a Co-Worker?

Bethany Heinesh Bethany Heinesh • 9/21/12

Fellas, there are two kinds of women you should never date: Your neighbors and your co-workers. Why? Because they know where you live and they know where you work! This is not good news when you date a woman and figure out there’s no hope for you as a couple.

There is nothing worse than being forced to confront your ex on a daily basis at places that should be secure, serene and drama-free. Sure, you may carry on some torrid love affair with a co-worker, but these relationships rarely work. Then you are forced to feel uncomfortable around this person.

Soon enough, you will dread hauling your butt out of bed in the morning to go to the office, and you’ll consider finding a new job altogether.

In the meantime, office romances cause distractions, resentments and an overall sense of disruption to the workplace environment. Sure, that hot gal in accounting may be giving you the eye, but take a pass. You’ll thank me in the long run.
