Before you think about dating the cute guy in the office next to yours, think about the risks.
Office romances such as dating a man in the workplace are full of risks. Before you start flirting over the copy machine, think about where an office romance could take you. In fact, your company may have a firm policy discouraging dating a co-worker or at least dating a person within the same department.
Moral of the story: Think before you date a co-worker.

As part of his book, The Guinea Pig Diaries, author A.J. Jacobs did everything his wife told him to. "She will be boss. I will be her devoted servant. It will be a month of foot massages and talking about feelings and scrubbing dishes and watching Kate Hudson movies (well, if Julie actually liked Kate Hudson movies). It could be revelatory.

Little did I know at that point, that for the next four years he'd be my immediate supervisor.
