Dating someone from work

Recommended Posts

Well what can I say the topic says it all and it's a very difficult one to tackle. I'm not even close to the point where I would actually date this woman, well I would date her, but because of the circumstances I feel that I can really get to know her pretty well through social interaction at work. Which is really your first date or two where you feel someone out and if there worth your time or not. So far she's a real interesting young woman, she's mentioned she hates eating alone, some similar interests but I still have much more to find out. Anyone have any thoughts on this topic? I'm very hesitant because I can see how something like this could go very bad fast. Some background, I've worked at the company for a couple months, I'll probably be leaving the company sometime in the spring to continue to pursue a career in professional baseball, however I will still be located in the area. So yeah let the conversation begin.

If you intend to leave anyway, why not ask her out?

What's the worst that could happen, except losing your job if it's against policy, or having to leave if before spring you have a hot and heavy relationship that ends in flames? I doubt you have much to worry about since you're a short timer, and discretion might pay off.


Sure, common wisdom forbids this terrible lapse in judgement.

I met my ex wife at work. It wasn't an issue.

If you really are planning to leave in the near future, then I say go for it. I'd advise that you kept it discreet ( as mentioned by Dako ), professional while at work ( it makes you want that other person more when you have to "play along" with the rules ) and be prepared for anything. I had a relationship at a job once and I got fired because of it. The girl I was dating felt horrible and wouldn't stop apologizing for weeks afterwards. I didn't care though, I knew it was a possibility from the very beginning and I had to ask myself if I was prepared to be ok with something like that, and I was.


Best of luck and I hope everything works out.
