Can success at work lead to success in love?

Cupid’s Advice:

Krasinski and Fischer married each other on their TV show, and celebrated real life marital bliss only one week apart. While their individual relationships are different, their work life seemed to predict their personal futures.  You too can allow your professional success to influence your daily life by taking the right steps.

1. Use work to network: Colleagues who see you every day might have a friend who’s perfect for you.  Just be careful not to burn any bridges at work if any consequential relationships don’t pan out.

2. Mix business with pleasure: In moderation, of course.  While getting involved with someone at work might not be the best idea, hanging out with work friends outside the office can open you up to a new group of people.

3. Find inspiration at home: Should a relationship bloom due to a work connection, keep those two worlds intertwined.  Your partner undoubtedly knows something about your office life; use it to your advantage.  He or she can be someone who can help you brainstorm a new idea, and also give you a back rub after a long day.
