Question Would you ever date a...

co-woRker?!!!

Just curious because there is someone that I find really attractive at my job but am worried that if I ask her out, rumors will spread and crap like that and especially if this is going to be someone I see a lot, I will have to deal with that...but at the same time I like her a lot. Plus, many of my co-workers hang out together and just the other night I went out for a beer with one of my assistant managers. It wasn't odd...but she has a crush on this one dude who works at my job. Patrick...and she told me that all of the girls except for one of them, likes him. So, obviously I got a little jealous but realized that it's better than I'm more in the background and just go to work to work and leave my personal life aside. But yeah, back to the point, I'm not sure what I should do since I like this girl. Should I just leave it alone? Or try and pursue it?

Yeah. Been there. Does have its drawbacks though.

May I ask what the drawbacks were for you?

1. Office Gossip. 2. Jealousy.

If your employer isn't one of those types that forbids office/workplace romances then if you feel you want to give it a go then it's really up to you.

Whether it works out or not, good or bad you won't ever know until you try.

Prevent the gossip by simply showing you're together. Why not.

Gossip does not work that way. It knows no bounds.
