Office romances involve "too much drama"
More and more people are having relationships at work, partly due to the fact that both men and women are spending longer hours in the office than ever before.
Although the excitement of a little flirtation over the desk may seem enticing, offices are renowned for being a breeding ground for dating disasters and the fallout when things go wrong can be devastating and highly public.
Tammy Foster, a 24-year-old strategist, said that office romances could also make things difficult for those in the vicinity.
Describing the crumbling relationship of two colleagues, she said: "Their offices were far away from one another, but you could hear big arguments they'd have over the phone."
Although the company did its best to make sure they didn't have to work together, Tammy told the Chicago Business website that even the weekly department meeting was a problem.
"They would sit at opposite ends of the conference table and disagree on everything that was thrown into the arena for discussion. It made things difficult for the staff since most of us were friends outside of work. We sort of had to choose sides."
After experiencing her own office dating fiasco, Tammy has decided to give workplace relationships a miss from now on.
"Now I don't even look at people in the office. It's too much drama," she confessed.
