I meet my bf by the IT desk lol. We both went into the office due to computer issues and that’s how we meet.

We have never been on the same project together and he is two levels above me. If we break up I am confident I would barely run into this man again… but we aren’t breaking up sooooo

Knew someone that married their recruiter at the firm. They are now a major power couple, both in new city one doing M7 MBA the other working a prestigious role (think PE/big tech etc.) — it can really work out for some

Bad idea 🤣

I’ve never liked the idea. I don’t anyone date anyone I work or go to school with. That’s always been my rule.

I’ve seen it work out. But it’s always amongst different DUs.

Project PMD had an affair with the project manager. PMD now leaving the firm.

I've seen it work out and couples getting married. I've also seen it completely blow up. If you date a co-worker, take it very slow, set clear boundaries between work and life, and have a plan in case of a break up.

I dated someone at work for 2 years. Thankfully we are still remote working. I don’t want to think about what it’d be like if I had to see them at work daily after the break up
