office love Is Love In The Air... At The Office?????

Office Romance

That special someone could be closer than you think.  Just under 40-percent of those taking part in a new CareerBuilder.com poll say they’ve dated a person with whom they work, and for 32-percent, that relationship led to marriage.  Eight-percent of those surveyed admit there’s someone on the job they’d like to date, but men are nearly three-times more likely to fancy a co-worker than women.  Some of those involved in office romances in the past year weren’t dating a colleague but someone holding a superior position in the company.  Women are more likely than men to get involved with someone higher up.  Thirty-percent of the ladies have dated someone ranked above them, along with 19-percent of men.  For 12-percent, the relationship sparked when they ran into each other outside the office. 

While some companies have policies discouraging personal relationships among employees, two-thirds of the those dating someone at work say they aren’t hiding their romance.
