Don’t Poop Where You Eat: Why Dating Co-Workers, Neighbors, and the Pizza Delivery Guy Won’t End Well
Remember Barney’s Platinum Rule…
Hahaha, of course you do.
Never ever, ever, ever, love thy neighbor.
You should never date someone you see on a regular basis, because when it doesn’t work out, you have the wonderful pleasure of constantly seeing them every single day.
Now I know what you’re thinking…’Its different, we are so totally connecting, our relationship is the exception.”
I hate to break your precious bubble…but nope. The odds are not in your favor, and here’s why…
1) No Shirt, No
Shoes Secrets, No Service
There are no such things as ‘secrets’ in the workplace, somehow everyone knows your business, because guess what? Its a small world!
2) Co-workers = Love Experts
I mean, come on! They know the both of you very well! Duh!
Everyone will want to put in their two cents on your relationship
3) Stage 5 Clinger
Think about it, you’ll see your significant other in the morning, afternoon, & most likely in the evening…Now I’m not 100% sure, but I think that pretty much defines a Stage 5 Clinger.
4) The Break-up
Now eventually, you guys will break-up and it won’t be a clean break either. Because guess what…everyone in the office will know and gossip about it. Not to mention you will have the pleasure of seeing your ex flirting with another guy/girl from the office during happy-hour. Yeah! Believe me that will happen…
You’ve been warned!
