What are some things to consider when you’re dating a co-worker?

Cupid’s Advice:

You won’t be able to keep dating a coworker a secret for long, so just expose yourself from the start.¬† Here are three ways to do so:

1. Be open: We understand that relationships are only supposed to be between the two people involved.¬† However, when you’re dating a co-worker, that theory isn’t going to hold up.¬† Everybody always knows everybody’s business at the workplace.¬† It’s best you tell everyone about it before somebody else gets the chance to.

2. Treat it like any other: Once step one is out of the way, there’s no need to be secretive anymore.¬† Treat your new relationship the same as you would any other.¬† Let everyone else see you and your honey holding hands or even smooching on breaks.¬† That’s a sure way to make it known that it’s official.

3. Be happy: Give your partner your all and love him or her completely.¬† Don’t let anyone’s judgments get to you.¬† Appreciate what you have while you have it.
