Gregg Ward, Workplace Consultant puts it this way: “There are a lot of “creeps” (both men and women) out there in the world; dating and falling for someone you work with is a lot easier/safer than trying to meet someone in clubs, bars, etc.
Dorothy Tannahill Moran puts it this way: “There are groups like law enforcement and the investigative agencies that have had great success actually relationships because the demands and pressures being put on them are often unique to their professions.
Being in a relationship where someone knows those demands and how that can likely impact time and availability is vital for any kind of relationship growth.
And, once the romance starts, it can be very exciting “pretending” to your colleagues that you’re not dating.
Practically speaking, two people in an office romance can also be a force for good; sharing notes/ideas and collaborating well together.”Romance in the Workplace – The Bad There are also a lot of “cons” to dating your co-worker.
