Dating a Coworker - Yay or Nay?
Hey guys - my personal stance has always been to date someone outside of your field/firm, but I'd like to hear contrarian views on this particular subject.
For those of you who have dated coworkers/colleagues, how did it go? Did it create tension or leave to someone leaving the firm?
For those of you who would never do this, because as Ross Geller says, "Don't Dip Your Pen in the Company Ink", what are your views on it?
Now if I'm asking for your views, it's only fair I provide mine.
Reasons Against Dating Colleagues/Coworkers
Creates tension at the eventual breakup (unless it's one of very few breakups that are mutual).
Limits yourself to the group of people; if you only interact with finance people from x firm or x university, then your views won't be challenged as much as they could be nor gain exposure on other things.
May be made public to other coworkers creating awkward tension before or after the breakup.
Alright, Monkeys... I've shown you mine, now show me yours.
