The Rules of Office Romance
Rabbi Shmuley shares his rules for dating a colleague:
- Don't ever date your boss.
- Don't ever date your subordinate.
- If you do date a colleague at work, make sure you don't carry the date over into the office. Be professional in the office at all times.
- If the relationship ends, be professional. "Try not to avoid the person you were dating…just don't bring it up," he says.
"Office romance is usually a bad idea and is usually engaged in by workaholics who have little to no social life outside the office. Better to work hard in the office but to [also] play hard outside the office by having a complete and fulfilling social life that can lead to love and romance."
