Romance at work 

We know that work is a place where people bring their passion, their anxieties, and everything else they’re dealing with at home and elsewhere in life. It shouldn’t really surprise us that people get crushes on their co-workers and sometimes take it to the next level. But we don’t talk about love and lust at work. We don’t acknowledge that people sometimes act on their office attractions, even though it happens all the time. Taking into account that most people spend the majority of their lives working with the same group of people every day, there is no surprise that romance and sexual relationships happen in their plenty in work environments.

In fact, according to a 2013 survey by Businessweek, 90% of workers are turned on by someone they work with and 85% think that workplaces should not ban sexual encounters between their staff members.  Of the 90% of people attracted to their colleagues, 64% had made a move for a co-worker or have fantasized about being with them. Just over half (54%) go as far as to sleep with their office crush and 55% of those only engage in the act the once with one night stands the most common form of office encounter.

I have seen first-hand the destruction of adultery.  Cheating devastates relationships and shatters dreams.  If you have entertained the idea of cheating on your spouse or significant other, let this serve as your official warning.
