5 Good Reasons to Date a Co-Worker
Have you been looking for love in all the wrong places? Well, perhaps it's time to try looking in the workplace! There are pros and cons for every dating situation, but there are 5 very good reasons to date a coworker, and I'm going to share them with you in just a moment. Don't let love pass you by if it's been staring at you from the next cubicle over (unless it's *really* been staring at you hardcore, cos that would be creepy) for the last 6 months. There are no rules in love, apart from those written by women who want to trick men into marrying them asap. So take a look at the following reasons to date a coworker and follow your heart.
You Know They've Got a Job
Tired of dating broke people? Tired of hearing them tell you they've got something in the works? Some brilliant plan that's going to make both of you millions in a short while? I don't blame you, as I know how annoying that can be. So why not try dating someone you work with? At least you know they've got a job, and if you're clever about it, you can probably bribe someone into telling you how much they make! Bonus!
You Can Spy On Them All Day
Sounds funny but it's more true than not. You don't need to worry about what your new love is getting up to while they are at work, because you'll be there too, and you can see it all for yourself. You'll know if there are any flirty situations you should keep abreast of, and you'll know which colleagues are after your new love. Of course, they can spy on you too -- not that you'd ever give them any reason to want to do so...
You Can Carpool
Tired of spending all your dosh on driving to work? In this economy? Please. It's much better to catch a ride with your significant other and let them pick up the tab on that extremely overpriced full tank of gas. That, and you could even catch a wink on the way in and let them worry about the traffic jams for both of you.
Make Your Sick Days Extra Convincing
Calling in sick to work can be a hassle, especially if you're fibbing about it. But if your significant other works at the same place, you can send them in on your behalf and let them elicit sympathy for you as they butter the boss up with some sad story about how you tried to come to work despite having 105+ fever, and you only stayed home because your partner wouldn't hear of you risking your health for something as petty as money.
You Get an Extra Vote
Is the office voting on which flavor cake to get for the next birthday party? Are you all about to cast votes on who should be the new office manager? Or who gets to take over that prime parking space now that one of your colleagues is transferring? Make your vote count twice as much by getting your partner to vote the same way! You might need to inject a little emotional manipulation into the picture, especially if the cake happens to be for *their* birthday party and they want something else, but hey, that's what love is all about!
