How Healthy Is Office Romance?

I would like to know your views about keeping an affair with a girl/lady that works in the office/establishment with you; what are the advantages and disadvantages of such relationships, why do people go into it, and is it healthy or not?

Please lets hear what you have to say about it,

Rhino, there is no coy policy that will not allow people to date, but for two married people working together its not allowed in most places. Anyway, on my own opinion its not decent doing it with someone in your office.

its really a bad deal. its going to be really distracting. Even if its going to end up in marriage but do you know that there are organizations that couples can not work together. One of them just have to resign

Office romance is so cute, nice, best and cost less, u guys could have each other for lunch and after work u cant be bored.

However, pls pray that god of breakup with not visit you both, cos one will have to leave for the other, and usually man might have to leave, when the babe start blackmailing you.

A friend did that and she got married to the guy May this year. Though one of them quickly resigned to another job, as the secret was no more a secret and its against the rules of the organisaton. I think it depends on the partners, matured mind is the principal thing here, but if it is this "fling thing" then u will have what u did not bargain for. Please when talking of office romance hope married folks are not involved here o.

Well, we tend to forget that whatsoever that have advantages must have disadvantages. Even when a relationship is contracted outside of the office it can still suck if it is destined to and basically I as one will not like to go out with any one working in the same company with me talkless in the same office. But what I believe is that what will be will always be. If you have a relationship in the office and if it will be good it will be good and if it is outside and it will be bad it will still be bad so those who want to experience it in any way should go ahead and do so even if you get hurt it is still an experience and will go down your History lane.

I guess if it's for a fling; then it's safer, neater, easier to do so with persons outside your office.

Let us JUST try & develop & keep COMRADESHIP in the work-place. It's healthier, sweeter and less-dangerous.

Saves u lots of gory scenes, dodging, transfers, etc;

Well, ?

Offie romance? Personally I don't see anything wrong with that. Romance is romance. whether in the office or out of office. The issue is doing the right thing and not the environment.

You can still loose your job is you are heart broken in a relationship outside the office. Is not only office romance that will make you loose your job.

Atittude is everything. It is your atittude in the relationship that will decide where it is heading to. Why the relationship in the first instance. If it due to lust, then as usual it will crash one day. And if you are having a relationship with your boss or a married man or woman. Can you call that office romance? It is not, because it is not leading you any where.

Well what is your definition of healthy? Becoming the topic of discussion at lunchtime? quitting your job when the whole thing gets messy? Is dat your definition of healthy. Anyways you guys can try it out. In most offices including where I work HR policy says its not allowed mainly for supervisory reasons

i agree with u,my husband and i too used to work in the same place and i must confess that i did get jealous sometimes when he's in the midst of our female colleagues. i also used to feel somehow when they yab him, these are things that i'd have laughed at as normal colleagues o.

really, its not the best, it causes unnecessary headache cause you start worrying over what ordinarily you wont worry about.

its only productive if marriage will be the end result of it all, else wahala is just u r abt starting,

Was in one n wen it packed up i had to seek transfer to a branch far away from the gal cos of the bad blood it created within the office. it even divided us

(staffers) in to 2 camps n all that.

more over its against that golden but silent Rule, never mix business with pleasure

well uchetobi thats ur own opinion. what am driving at is that office romance is a reality and it works for some people but not for most people.

am not saying its healthy but the reality is that a good number of people get away with office romance with no wahala. its just a proper understanding btw both parties.

doesnt work for every body sha!

I must say, very luvly yours was.

I believe if the parties will focus on moving to the next level, eg. marriage, then it is GOOD!

For me it worked out, for the lady I worked with and ended up going out with is my wife.

We have the most beautiful child from our union.

I would however say that it certainly enhances the relationship if you don't work together.

Not healthy at all.

The odds outweighs the evens.

UNLESS: if the two get married later then it's ok; but one person may hav to get a job elsewhere.

But it's unhealthy for a fling or stuff.

Not advisable.

Office relationship is quite risky. Recently in my office a guy met me and asked me out. I refused cos from all he said it was very obvious that he wanted 2 get down with me. He told me he was still single and he wanted a wife. I blatantly refused. Last week i found out that he was married!!!!!!!!! Had it been i agreed 2 his proposal i wld hav ,  Its better to look else were other than the office,

What does it mean to be hopelessly in love with someone? Does it mean you were hopeless but you stayed on loving him or what?

It is the easiest way to stay stunted on your job.there are high chances of distraction and unprofessional attitudes from both of you in office.

I went out with someone for about ten months and fell hopelessly in love with him. Found out he didn't feel the same but was just pretending all the while, now am stuck with seeing him everyday. Thankfully, am over it now but it was hell trying to get over him. I must say its quite unhealthy and not advisable at all.

Having an affair with someone who is not your wife is sin in God's eye and you lose your respect if things go sour.
