Dating my boss

Here are some considerations in deciding if dating someone at work is right for you: PROS 1. In addition, people gossip and you may make enemies if one of you is higher up in the corporate or business ladder at work, and the one is lower down may be perceived as getting unfair advantages. If one of you wants a break from work and the other is into work, you may not have an escape from it -- even out of the office.Okay, so you’ve thought about it, and you’re still with me that dating someone from work is viable and can even be successful.

You’re probably like every other workingwoman who is dedicated and hard working – so much so that her commitment to work makes it impossible to meet anyone outside of work. Men love women who are confident and focused with interests and areas of expertise. The easiest way to get out of dating someone at work is to simply explain, “Sorry. You have a lot in common and can be more productive because you have this in common. There is an understanding of each other's work schedules.

You’re probably not just a nine to five worker – you’re that successful someone who works extra hours, weekends, and is trying to get ahead and do well. I don’t date people I work with.” Then hope one of you gets fired. One of you isn't angry if the other has to work late because you have a better understanding of what's involved. If you break up or have a fight, you don't get the respite and space you may need to heal or cool down because you'll see the person so often at work. Sexual harassment is a real problem that can occur more easily when there are lines that get blurred at work.

We're working very hard to keep our social life separate from our work life." And smile. Put yourself in your co-workers shoes, and talk openly and often with your honey about what you see, feel and want to do about it.

Remember that both dating and working are natural parts of life, and it’s completely natural to become attracted to people you work with. But be impeccable with your behavior and your work.
