Hookin' up after work?
Chris_WebMD_Staff posted:
Have you ever had a relationship with a co-worker? Does your company have a policy against that, and you still had a relationship anyway?

Life is too short, so kiss slowly, laugh insanely, love truly and forgive quickly.

I did and we are now married. Was there a specific policy against it. I am not really sure. It wasn't really condoned... But I don't think there was anything specific saying don't do it.

Ahhh I love happy endings like that. That's great, I think the work place is a great opportunity to meet others. In your case it worked out great! Thanks for sharing!

I think any place of my employment did not condone romantic relationships between co-workers. If nothing was spelled out in the policy and procedure it was definately one of the unwritten rules.

I also do not condone a romantic relationship between
co-workers. It is mostly not a good thing because this is like being in a non realistic fake world that makes you do and say things you would not outside the work place. What I am trying to say is take it out of the work place and be professional while at work, you will look and feel better for it to your boss and other coworkers. Another thing that happens is you get yourself into deep _hit if you are married or have a relationship going on already outside of the workplace. Somehow we don't think we are brain dead about the other party in are life And I am glad for ajohnson08099 this is one of the rare events a time it worked out, in most cases it leaves a bad environment when it dose not work and you still must go to work and face it good or bad result. I don't recommend it. It can brake up someones marriage or relationship that you think they will never find out. The reason I say this is it happened to both my wife and myself and almost ended it ,but if we did not realize that we had both made mistakes I would not be making my 29 year anniversary that just pasted in march. It is just not worth losing who you really want the relationship with and that is what needs to go through you head before you make your move. Good luck?

When I worked fast food, I had a few relationships with co-workers but I don't think there was a policy. I guess you could say DH and I met at work as we met at a hockey arena where I was the scorekeeper and he was one of the referees. The owner knew we were dating and didn't care. We continued to work together even after we were married.
