Dating is such a complicated ordeal on its own, but dating a coworker is a whole new ballgame. There are so many great things about it, but it can also get awkward very fast. I interviewed some people that went through the experience, and here's what they had to say.

1. Sasha:

"I only dated a coworker once. That was plenty for me. It got so awkward so fast. I never had time to myself anymore, and so I broke it off. He didn't handle it very well and quit."

2. Dana:

"I met my husband when we worked together. Seeing how nice he was to customers, especially kids, really attracted me to him. We've been together three years now and married for one."

3. Mike:

"I dated my boss once. It wasn't allowed by the company, but we didn't care. Another employee ratted us out and we both got fired. We broke up shortly after that."

4. Lucy:

"My boyfriend worked with me for a little bit. Going from not working together to working together kinda sucked. We got on each other's nerves really fast."

5. Scott:

"I met my first girlfriend at work. She was a regular customer and eventually got a job with me. She admitted that she only got the job to get to know me better. I thought it was so sweet."

6. Julie:

"Dating a coworker wasn't a good idea for me. It made me really jealous whenever my boyfriend would talk to customers that were females. He always flirted with them! He would pay for their drinks and give them extra food. He swore he was doing it just to be a good server, but I knew it was more than that."

7. Joel:

"10/10 would recommend. I loved seeing my girlfriend all the time!"

8. Mary:

"I dated a guy I worked with, and it was a nightmare. We always brought our work home with us. We argued constantly and only dated for about a month more."

These stories are some of the situations that can occur when you work with your SO. It can go really well, or it can completely fail. Just like any relationship, it really depends on how much work you are willing to put into it and if you can handle spending so much time together. A big lesson that all of those I interviewed learned was their relationship really affected their work. A job is important and needs to be given your full attention. If you decide to date a coworker, I hope this article helps you out!

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.
