Dating At Work
I have a good friend and daily reader of the blog who told me to bring the following topic to the table and ask for opinions on it. He really likes a girl at work, but in the past he's seen far more misses then hits in this practice. Ive told him that I personally wouldnt do it and here's the points I hit him with.
1. When it doesnt work out, yall get to see each other every day.
2. You no room for personal space. If it works out, and you decide to spend more and more time together, then you have nothing interesting or fresh to talk about b/c you see each other all the time.
3. Friends are equal. Some tend to like it, others dont. But, sharing friends can be problamatic when there's conflict.
There are Positives though and even though I aimed primarily to have him NOT do this, I hit him with these.
1 .Gas is alot cheaper when you share a car to work
2. No trust issues
3. Scheduling things together is alot easier when youre on the same schedule.
I can only speak from my personal expereince, but I cant reccomend dating a someone you have to see for 16 hrs a day M-F. Now my boy and this girl have been flirting for the better part of a month now, and last night they went on a group outing and though there was 6 people from the job present, him and the girl broke off and spent alot of time alone towards the end. I told him while its still fresh, let it go. BUT, thats just what I'd do.
I'll Leave it out there..
