    too awkward if you break up. thats why i waited for this one guy to transfer stores before i left a note on his car asking if he wanted to bang sometime to call me...and here we are 3 years later happy as can be owning our own house ;P. i didn't want to add more stress to my work environment if we gave it a try and we didn't work out, thats the whole point in that lol

    I'm currently crushing on a co-worker of mines. Of course, if he was interested in me, I'd date him.

    Work is a place to hide from the person you're seeing!

    there is a time and place for every thing, if the tention at work becomes to strong were the business acutity is compromised, then having some human comfort out side of the work enviorment is the right recepiey.

    Sure I've done it more than a few times over the years, although it can be awkward afterwards if it doesn't end well.

    It very seldom works out well. Most people I see doing this end up miserable. Who wants to look at their ex everyday for 8 hours? Just say no to office romances.

    But not for sex or intrigues.

    We currently organised within work groups and among friends at work cultural meetings, lunches or suppers, discussion rounds, chatting, excursions, sports, courses, further training, volunteering in causes, etc.in our leisure time. That favoured a good work climate. If a co-worker was in hospital, for instance, there were always colleagues to visit her or him with flowers and news from the other colleagues. There were, of course, always some people who had relationships with more or less success, although intrigues were not really appreciated, and sometimes lead to firing people. But privacy was respected, as long as it had no negative impacts on work performance and reputation.

    With the economic crisis, extreme demands, ruthless competition and drastic job reductions are killing teamwork and the family spirit among colleagues.

    It is preferable to keep professional and private life apart.

    I already have before. And she treated me well, and we had great times together playing Wheel of Fortune on the big screen TV and going to the movies and the sex, which was fantastic, but she was so immature, she could never make up her mind on anything, especially if it was me or who her family wanted her to marry: Someone who abused her. She caved to their wishes, though she was old enough to make up her mind(19 at the time), because I know she loved me as much as I did her. I said to myself "I don't want this weak-minded woman, even though I love her, because I'm going to have to think for her all the time."

    It's difficult to meet people at all and maintain one's dignity. The social situations and fabric that made it relatively easy for people a century ago to meet, court, and marry, simply don't exist and haven't in decades. There are no classic town squares where people can congregate. Churches have lost their social credibility. There are no public spaces or stable communities where people have time to check each other out.

    Work is about the only place where favorable familiarity can take place. Unfortunately, if it fails, you're stuck with seeing him or her. America's popular culture is highly corrosive to marriage and the entire process that leads to it. That makes meeting somebody special at work a perilous event.

    Never have, never will. When it all crashes and burns, I need to never see him again, not every work day. I like to keep work and my personal life separate.

    It's just begging for trouble. It pretty much *never* works out well. (My brother's one of the exceptions that pretty much proves the rule).
