Emma Watson has cast her spell on a new man.  The Harry Potter actress, 21, was spotted smooching actor Johnny Simmons outside a Santa Monica L.A. restaurant on Thursday afternoon, according to UsMagazine.com. Simmons, 24, is Watson’s costar in The Perks of Being a Wallflower. According to an eyewitness, Simmons dropped Watson off at the restaurant to dine with friends, and they parted ways very cautiously.  The pair “looked very loved up,” the observer said.  “Holding and hugging each other for awhile and playfully kissing.  They seemed very open and not trying to hide their affection.”

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.
