5 Tips For Handling Office Romance


The dos and don'ts of dating a co-worker.

4. Gush (but in small amounts.) Depending on how long you've worked at the company, you and your co-workers might be pretty tight when it comes to talking about relationships, and that’s great! But if all of a sudden the other part of your relationship is just a few desks away, you need to show some tact. Do keep the negative bit about your relationship out of the picture. "If he leaves the toilet seat up and it drives you crazy, sweetly ask him to put it down, and don't talk about it with your co-workers." Do understand that you're now in the position to change how others view your new boyfriend, and it's not your place to do so, so don't.

5. Give yourself space. You're dating, you're working together, Sundays are spent in bed, and what else? You also go to lunch together everyday? Give it a break and quit smothering before you drive each other crazy! As a final tip from Colada will tell you, "Don't spend every waking moment together, it will keep things fresh and he will keep wanting more." Truth.

Now march off to the fax machine and see if you can fall in love.
