How much you see her
Before you date a co-worker, figure out how much you actually see her throughout the day. Is she in the cubicle next to you? Does she work on your floor? Is she your boss? The reason you ask yourself these questions is to gauge how awkward a break up could be. The last thing you want to do is make the workplace uncomfortable. You spend all your hours there! When you date a co-worker there is always the chance of an awkward break up. This means that youíll have to deal with multiple uncomfortable situations during the day. The workplace is the last place in your life you want to make more stressful. The advice isnít NOT date a co-worker if you see her a lot, but to understand the potential consequences. Ask yourself, is it worth it? If youíre dying to do it and this is a girl youíre extremely attracted to, then go for it. Only pursue the women you believe you might have a solid relationship with. Otherwise let it lie.
Depending on what type of work environment you belong to, you may come across a lot of beautiful women. If you want to do more than date a co-worker and just hook up, then you need to analyze the situation. The reputation at your company may be at stake if you start hooking up with too many girls. You have to factor in the gossip around the office. You donít want to be attached to a slutty reputation. This is not good for networking or the future at your company. If word gets out that you are hooking up with multiple girls then you may find yourself with a whole array of women enemies. Talk travels fast and soon you wonít be able to do ANY dating in your office. The only exception is if sheís a girl that works in your building and has no connection to your work.
How to do it
The best way to date a co-worker is to try and ask them out on a date outside of the office. This will better your chances of not coming off creepy or involved in any type of sexual harassment. Keep all advances beyond the workplace. Light flirting is always acceptable, but only if you see her starting it or sending an invitation to. Otherwise, make a plan to see her outside of the office. Create an event or outing with your co-workers at a bar or somewhere fun. Be the leader. Make sure your prospect goes to this event and lay on the flirting there. This will be a great spot to get to know her better and have more non-work related conversations. Ask to see her another time and make a date out of it.†
