Office Romance

According to CareerBuilder’s annual office romance survey, 31% of people have dated a co-worker at some point in their career.  And 38% of them ended up MARRYING that person.

 Those are better odds than basically any online dating website.  And workplace romances aren’t as taboo as they used to be:  34% of people who are currently dating someone at work said they’re not keeping it a secret.

 But if you’re among the 9% who wants to date a co-worker right now, think about this before you act on it:  6% of people who’ve dated someone in their office said they ended up leaving their job because of it.  They either quit, or they were fired.

 And guys are much more inclined to start an office romance than women are.  Of the men who said they’re currently interested in someone in their office, 16% of them would actually DATE the person, compared to just 2% of women.

But that doesn’t mean you have ZERO chance of dating your co-worker.  You just have to find the right time and place to hit it off.  18% of people who’ve dated a co-worker said their relationship started at lunch.

And here are a few other common situations where people said their office romances started:

#1.)  During happy hour .

 #2.)  During a holiday party . . . for basically the same reason.

 #3.)  While you’re both working late at the office . . . because you’re alone together.

 #4.)  During a business trip . . . because you’re alone together.
