This can be especially true in high-growth companies that demand long work hours and tend to hire more single employees.
As a business owner, you might ask: "Where is the legal issue?
" or "What's the best policy regarding workplace dating?
In a poorer scenario, the relationship would end badly, one of the employees could claim that the relationship was non-consensual, or that sexual harassment existed.
An employee could even make a case for unlawful retaliation if he or she receives a poor performance review from a former lover (or if a co-worker receives a better evaluation from his or her boss).
Dating a woman who is strong and direct is a major eye opener. If she doesn’t want to do something or doesn’t like her dinner, she’s going to tell you. She just knows that it’s better to just say what she means instead of hinting at it and hoping you get it. Don’t even try making lame excuses when you’re late to meet her. If you get into a fight with her, she’s not going to back down if she knows she’s right.
She’s definitely not like most other women and her candor is either refreshing or terrifying, depending on who you are. While many might think she’s too bold, she’s just being herself. Tell her the truth or just end the relationship now. It doesn’t matter if the truth is “you forgot.” She’d rather know than wonder why you’re hiding. You’re not going to wear her down and get her to apologize. If she’s not, the fight’s not over until you admit you’re wrong. Straightforward women have a bit of an adventurous streak. Even more shocking is that 40% of those 18-29 year olds would date their supervisors.According to a Career Builder survey, interoffice dating has a fairly high success rate--of the 38% of people surveyed that dated a co-worker at least once, 31% went on to marry that co-worker! If you believe the stats of new employees entering the workforce, it might seem so.As the old saying goes "you don't dip your pen in the company ink." In other words, you shouldn't get into a dating or sexual relationship with a co-worker.But consider this: according to a recent Workplace Options survey, nearly 85% of 18-29 year olds would have a romantic relationship with a co-worker, compared to just over 35% for 30-46 year olds and about 30% of 47-66 year olds. Treat her right and she’ll make plenty of time for you. It’s part of the reason she’s not going to put up with any lies from you.
