Two vampires were seen in Paris walking in daylight Tuesday.  According to, stars of the CW show Vampire Diaries Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev held hands while walking around the streets of the city of love.  Despite their vacation, the two have yet to come out and admit they’re dating.  “We expected the rumors.  Like, if I wasn’t dating Ian, I’d be dating Paul [Wesley],” Dobrev said in April’s Teen Vogue.  “A lot of people who work together end up dating, so it wouldn’t be unusual, but I’ve never dated anyone I’ve worked with.”

How do you make dating a coworker less risky?

Cupid’s Advice:

Dating someone you work with is tricky to handle. Think of Jim and Pam from The Office, as they’re a great example of the ideal way to handle yourself in the workplace with your partner.  Cupid has a few things to keep in mind:

1. On the same level: Things can get messy if one of you is a superior or a manager. Not only does it give a bad image to others, but if you break up, it  might be the ugliest one you’ve ever experienced.

2. Separation helps: Your interoffice relationship goes a lot smoother if you’re in different departments. You’ll be away from each other for most of the day, and it’ll give you a little more to talk about when discussing work.

3. Say ‘No’ to PDA at work: It makes coworkers feel uncomfortable and is an HR seminar waiting to happen.  Keep it at casual flirting and no real physical contact while on the clock.
