Dating fellow worker
There are obvious plus points to meeting your partner at work: 1.
You know you will have at least one thing in common, as well as an informed ear to bounce all your troubles off when you get home in the evening; 2.
They grow in-depth relationships that deepen into romance.
A place where people share a common interest, and spend most of their time, provides the perfect opportunity for love.
It's always wise to keep in mind, though, that in the workplace you should think and plan before you act. What are your positions in the company pecking order? If you do tell this colleague you're not interested in them as a partner they may claim - unfairly - that that was never their intention in the first place, craftily extricating themselves from the area of conflict, leaving a sour taste all round.

Work is a way of test-driving a potential partner (ie getting to know them) before taking the plunge and asking them out. Etiquette: Dating a work colleague requires a good amount of old-fashioned social etiquette, not because it will make you any more attractive but because it will make the whole process a lot more comfortable and a lot less difficult, if and when the whole thing ends. Working with someone means forging an effective relationship.
