If you are dating a workmate they will be more willing to go that extra mile for you than anyone else would.
They will be willing to stay late with you, and to spare you the time that no one else would like to give you, simply due to the fact they have feelings for you and it’s natural to want to remove stress from the one you love if you can.
Colleagues are often busy with their own thing and unwilling to assist, after all - it’s not their problem, it’s yours.
It can be difficult to ask for help, also, when you really need just a few hours of someone’s time to meet that important deadline without going crazy.
By finding out more about the real person, and being attracted to this person, the relationship should last longer and be more secure than if the relationship had been built on the white lies of someone wishing to be more than they really are.
Also the fact you are working for the same company shows that you already have a strong bond between each other - with the added advantage to not having to explain your job to a possible mate and have their eyes glaze over when they find out you’re an accountant. Spend time with each other Obviously if a relationship is going to last a long time, you and your partner will need to spend a lot of time with each other.
Nowadays,it appears to be the workplace where the majority of people meet, where relationships are forged, and where significant others are established. If the majority of people meet at work it doesn’t mean that you will find your one and only at the water cooler, and it doesn’t mean you should lightly jump into a relationship with your receptionist.
