I don't have problem with office romance if its done in an adult way. You don't engage in affairs at work (no married people) and you don't date anyone who supervises you or whom you supervise. Physical displays of affection, pet names, and other outward signs of romantic behavior are left at home (and that includes lunch breaks). If you break up or have an argument, that also stays at home - no sabotage, arguments in the break room, or bursting into tears when you see the other person. If you can't date someone under those requirements, then you shouldn't date someone at work.
much agreed, unfortunately, most people cant actually stick to those guidelines...
my sister dated someone at work, and they did actually stick to the above suggestions and then some - so much so, that when they got engaged, many people came up to her and said things like "I didnt even know you were dating
someone!" and those that knew she was dating
someone mistakenly believed she was engaged to one of her male work friends (friends before working together) rather than her actual fiance!
