Office Romances Hot or Not?
Do you think it's a good or bad idea to persue workplace Romance?

I answered the poll, but I think it is relative. If you are genuinely pursuing a love interest at your job, then yeah... that's cool. But if you're just carrying on a love affair with the sista in human resources (with no intentions of making it into something meaningful) then I think it is a problem.

I mean... you can carry on that type of relationship outside of work, if you choose to. No need in bringing that type of stuff inside the workplace!

No doubt and if you plan on having an office fling folks...by all means AVOID the lady/man working in HR. That's a quick ticket to pink slip'ville

One time I dated a sista who worked in my company. Nothing came of it but it was not because we worked together. It was because she was crazy as hell!

TOTALLY BAD THOUGHT - NEVER mix business with pleasure unless you're already married and your spouse works for the same company/organization.

BECAUSE .....

Most men usually don't tell females that the female is nothing more than another item on they're "To Do List", in other words - MOST FEMALES DON'T KNOW THEY'RE A BOOTY CALL and by the time they figure it out, the ASSociation is over with and they're pretty much scorned and DEMANDING some type of closure as to why the RELATIONSHIP didn't work - never realizing she was nothing more than a toss to begin with.

Much embarassment lies ahead when dealing with a scorned female period, let alone in the workplace - YOU'LL HAVE NO PLACE TO HIDE AND SEEK SHELTER! What is one to do when ole' girl she shows up and your desk/office huffing and puffing! You have no control over the situation WHEN SHE WANTS TO TALK, SHE'S IN YOUR FACE, if you think having temporary sexual gratification is worth it ..... perhaps you should think twice.

Females cackle in the lunchroom, on smoke breaks, in their workstations and unless you're willing to ruin your reputation with your co-workers and be labeled "That No Good For Nothing", 'That Low Down Dirty Dog", "That Lying Son Of A" - I'd advise you to think twice.

As one responder mentioned, A GENUINE LOVE INTEREST - sure .... but you should make sure the RELATIONSHIP is solid, she has POTENTIAL to be in your future and someone you truly CARE about.



An Office Romance?

We're not hired to be on the prowl at work, I was hired to do a specific jobs related to my employment and I didn't see the word ROMANCE in my Job Description and I believe this is the case for the majority - unless you work in a brothel or for an escort service.

NO! NO! NO!
Steer clear of office romance by any means necessary. I have seen it happen many times and its always a mess. I agree that unless the relationship is SERIOUS, dont touch it. When things go south (and they usually will) it can get nasty and not to mention awkward. I have seen people fall out so bad that one of them felt compelled to resign. I also recall an instance where a woman went to the manager and told on this guy for playin her. Yes, I know that was dumb, but people do irrational things when it comes to matters of the heart. There's drama in our personal lives as it is, why bring to work too?

People who have office relationships dont realize that they are hurting others. The relationship can affect the work, the morale and attitude of the company. They also appear to have no real intention of staying in the relationship since it is in the workplace. People in relationships in the workplace usually worry more about the consequences which is more exciting.....similiar to having an affair.

Just remember...when you are working, youre in the public eye whether you think so or not....and with cameras and youtube, you are being watched.

think about it

I made that mistake at one of my past jobs. This sista and I worked together for 2yrs before I found out that she was attracted to me. One thing important to me is that I don't like my personal business being put out in public. Well, one time we had a disagreement at my place, I took her home and said that we could discuss it later. This woman wanted to discuss things at the work place the next day, in front of a bunch of white women of all things. I almost lost my mind.
