    Office romances

    Will anybody admit to having an office romance?

    I know that companies have rules against them but they still happen.

    We have set romances. Happens all the time. And I've had a few, met my current GF on a set. And my last one too.

    I've got some funny stories about what happens behind the scenes.

    Doesn't always work out.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Yes. Did not work out well for me. Once the fling is over, very awkward.

    Re: Office romances

    I started work at this paper company and immediately had a crush on the secretary; however, she was engaged to a guy who worked in packaging. I eventually confessed my love to her, but she did not feel the same. So, I ended up transferring. It ended up that her fiance took a swing at me and was fired. She broke up with him and we actually ended up together. Last Thursday we actually got locked in The Office together.

    In all seriousness, I was dating a girl who decided to join an organization on campus that I was in charge of. We ended up breaking up but were both involved in the organization and it was very awkward for a while.

    If you are in an office relationship, you should disclose it to HR.

    Even if its a one night stand?

    I think allot of people here hit the nail on the head, it isn't the romance that is the problem, it is the break-up.
