The last thing you want is for your philandering to fall victim to office gossip.
So, instead of offering up your relationship on a silver platter to the chatty Cathys of your cubicle, make sure you and your partner discuss logistics and really get a game plan together in order to avoid that painfully awkward and embarrassing conversation with your boss.
If your career is important to you, you should probably avoid this diabolical situation at all costs, as it can get very messy, very quickly.
If you're seeing someone every single day of the week AND spending your weekends together, you definitely run the risk of becoming bored with the relationship.
Dating outside your work circle allows open communication about your day-to-day, maybe some funny stories about coworkers and that promotion you have been inquiring about; dating within your work circle does not. Plus, you have to be careful about what you blab; if you ask me, that's a lot of effort especially when wanting to vent to your partner without reservation.
Misery does love company, and a quickie in the storage room can’t hurt either!
In passing, I mentioned my workplace romance theory to a single male friend of mine who works in IT at a reputable jewelry company.
