Nowadays,it appears to be the workplace where the majority of people meet, where relationships are forged, and where significant others are established. If the majority of people meet at work it doesn’t mean that you will find your one and only at the water cooler, and it doesn’t mean you should lightly jump into a relationship with your receptionist.
There are serious things that should be considered when you start an office romance, as dating a workmate has serious implications on all aspects of your life, and also effects those around you.
If you are dating a workmate they will be more willing to go that extra mile for you than anyone else would.
They will be willing to stay late with you, and to spare you the time that no one else would like to give you, simply due to the fact they have feelings for you and it’s natural to want to remove stress from the one you love if you can.
If you see them everyday, spending 8 working hours with them and still want to date - the chances are you will have a healthy relationship, that you will enjoy spending time with each other and, unlike a lot of people, will not be searching for time away from each other which isn’t always a good indication that a relationship will last. Create a happy work environment The early stages of dating is a great time.
You’re excited every time you see the person, you’re happier than you may otherwise be, and because of this you’re generally more approachable as a person.
Though you may indeed meet someone during the evening a relationship at this stage is generally formed on a physical attraction rather than an actual attraction to the person within - which is why these chance, brief meetings so often end in a one night stand and little else.
At work you generally become attracted to the person over time, which is more conducive to a working relationship. Establish a relationship prior to dating By working alongside someone you will get to know them as a person, and find out more about who they really are than you would in other circumstances.
Colleagues are often busy with their own thing and unwilling to assist, after all - it’s not their problem, it’s yours.
It can be difficult to ask for help, also, when you really need just a few hours of someone’s time to meet that important deadline without going crazy.
They will be jealous that you received something they didn’t, and will blame anything other than themselves for it. This is due to the fact it’s quite natural to flirt in an office.
