Don't do office romance

Office romance is never good, and I didn't want to have another office romance because it started too much confusion.  I had already done that before and it didn't work.  I was not going to go back down that path, but you never know what God might have in store for you.

God had blessed me with a good job, and I was determined to stay with this job.  This had been the longest that I had ever worked at any job.  I had been working at this job going on three years and I was glad to say that I held a job that long.

My boss and I were hanging out a lot but there was nothing more to it than just that.  Yes he wanted to get with me but I wasn't going to give him more power over me.  I was the one that held the power not the other way around.  The first time I met Larry, I thought that he was weak but I was glad to have a black supervisor.  Larry wasn't much a supervisor and everyone ran over him and did whatever they wanted to do.  My side of the warehouse, ran well everyday because I had a couple of good workers but they played entirely too much.  I worked with all men and they were crazy all the time.  Two of the guys had wives and I knew wasn't anything popping off.  The other guy had a girlfriend and he wasn't my type.

  1. i was taught to never say never. however, i definitely would like to think that i would not engage in an office romance. i really don't see them as being all bad unless the couple is married and other employees knows this, that's what give it a bad name, other than that office romance makes it hard becuz if it don't work it brings drama to the job, division among co-workers and other sorts that didnt have to be.

  2. Sidne, the BCR you are right office romance is very risky and I believe that if you can keep from having an office romance that would be the best thing for both parties and then no one will get hurt and no one has to risk their jobs in the process. Sometimes it can work out but the majority of the time it is not worth taking the risk.
