Words of wisdom: Leave your PDA (public displays of affection) at home!
Top Three DOs: DO separate work from personal matters. Separate your personal life from your professional one in order to perform at your best.
You can also benefit from the excitement of “hiding” your love interest and pretending that you’re not dating.
Who knows; maybe you can create a very good collaboration system with your new beau/belle.
The phrase "don’t dip your pen in the company ink" is a well-worn cliché, and some companies are so concerned about the negative effects of office romances that they expressly prohibit workplace dating.
There’s also a good chance that, working for the same employer, the two of you enjoy similar work hours and holidays. Will dating someone at work change the way co-workers or supervisors regard you?
Depending on the circumstances, failing to do so could cost you a raise, a promotion – or even your job.
Of course, warnings about the dangers of workplace dating and office hookups are nothing new.
At least in normal life, if you look at the person you thought you’d marry and suddenly realize that you can’t stand the sight of them, you can just break up.
But when this person is a work colleague, you may still have to maintain a professional relationship no matter how badly things end.
