Is Dating A Co-Worker A Good Idea? [EXPERT]

Thinking of dating a coworker? Read this advice first!

We all have long work hours and demanding schedules, so how do you meet someone if you are always working? What if you meet someone interesting at work? Should you take the risk by engaging in a potentially awkward or inappropriate relationship? Here's one single guy's dilemma...

Dear Dating Advice Girl,

I've developed feelings for a colleague that is new to the company. I am in accounting, and she is in HR (for a different division). I'm trying to get a sense if she likes me or not and if she knows I like her. I introduced myself to her and then after meeting her, I instantly was attracted to her.

A couple days later, I visited her in her office downstairs. For the past few days, we've been chatting for about 30 minutes at the end of each day. She's only come up to my office once or twice, whereas I've gone down to her office a few more times. Do you think she knows I like her? Do you think she may have any interest in me?

I want to ask her out on a date, but am afraid of any repercussions at work. She is at my branch for another month or so then she may be transferred to another branch. What do you think?
