With all the time we spend at the office, it’s no wonder many people find romance at work.
According to The Huffington Post, a typical person spends 13 years and two months at work—more than 25 percent of the average 50-year career.
Sparks may fly with a colleague at some point, but it’s getting increasingly difficult to handle it appropriately.
CareerBuilder has released its annual Valentine’s Day survey, which reveals that office romance hit an all-time low last year. Thirty-six percent of workers reported dating a co-worker, down from 41 percent the prior year (and 40 percent in 2008).
Does that mean we’re relegated to online dating or more old-fashioned means of meeting a special someone? Not necessarily, though dating a colleague can be a minefield.
