One or two messages during the working day can help keep the zing in your relationship, and make mundane tasks much more interesting.
After all, relationships are meant to be less about work and more about play.
So I guess you could consider me a seasoned veteran in this area.
In my line of work there's a lot of collaboration happening, and everyone talks with each other all day.
My bosses have always known about the relationships (which I think is crucial!
) and been fine with them to the extent that nothing changes about our work ethic or the team dynamic (as much as possible).
I can't be as open with my work friends about my relationship as I may otherwise be.
There's no gossiping about the date we went on over the weekend; no scheming with my coworkers about birthday gifts for my S. It's important that I not bring that intimacy into the workplace since they all know him.
Best to start things off slow before making it official and get to know one another as friends first. You get to be with your boyfriend while earning money at the same time. I actually think the worst part about working with someone you're dating is not being able to get a break.
Make sure you have a conversation about how to handle the situation should the worst ever happen, and your post-relationship work environment won’t seem quite as stressful.
If you were dating someone outside the office, chances are you’d Whats App them during work, so there’s nothing stopping you from doing the same with a colleague you’re dating.
So when you have the chance to enjoy yourself, take it!
Dating someone you work with has always been considered taboo.
