Reader Question: I’ve been working at my new job for four months and I’m sensing a mutual attraction between my coworker and me. Is it appropriate to date him?
Vixely Guy Answer: An old adage (“don’t dip your pen in the company’s ink”) comes to mind here, and it’s both sage wisdom and an outdated concept. These days, at companies like Facebook, Google, and Groupon, intraoffice dating is common practice, if not shamelessly encouraged by management. If you only occasionally see each other at, say, the ball pit or one of the six cafeterias on campus, go for it. But it gets sticky with small companies. Do you work with this person often? Will you have to sit across from each other during meetings? Does he have the power to get you fired? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you’ll have a much harder time avoiding awkward, bitter, and professionally destructive interactions with him if things go awry. The way I see it: Your job will probably outlast your boyfriend, so if he’s someone you see and work with on a daily basis, avoid it.
