In today’s fast-paced world, we all are so engrossed in our work lives that sometimes it overpowers everything else. We spend most of the time at our workplace that it is only natural that we start liking someone there. This liking sometimes broods into a whirlwind romance but sometimes it ends up in serious heartbreaks. Let’s find out how one can handle romance at workplace in the best possible way.
1. Know the policy
Some companies and organisations have strict policies against relationships. If you find yourself gradually fancying someone, then it is time to check the policies. And if your organisation has a strict policy against relationships, then set your priorities straight away.
2. Weigh the pros and cons
Do not make any rash decisions. It is the matter of your life. If you know that you won’t be able to date him because of the company’s policy, then ask yourself what matters the most right now? Is it your career or are you looking for settling down really soon? You could also switch jobs if you feel it won’t affect your career in negative way. You can also be a bit discreet about your relationship at your current workplace but that would obviously be a short-term solution.
3. Keep your focus
Even if your company does not have any rule against dating, it does not give you the right to not do your job properly. Don’t let your personal life affect the quality of your work at your workplace. This way you will be able to tackle both aspects of your life perfectly.
4. No PDA
You won’t like to be fodder for office gossips and politics. Right? There must be no public display of affection no matter how subtle you may feel your gestures are! Not all of the office workers know about your relationship and you also don’t need to tell the whole world right away.
5. Socialise outside work
You must know the person inside and out for whom you are going extra lengths. Do not just feel OK with spending little time at your workplace only. Try to socialise outside of your workplace whenever you can. Try to know the person as much as you can to avoid any future misunderstandings. Make sure that both of you are on the same page and not looking for different things.
6. Understand the risks if things don’t go well
It is definitely not certain that a workplace romance will end in a happily ever after for everyone. It could also end in a really bad heartbreak. You need to know beforehand what would be best for you. Would you be able to handle your work as efficiently as you used to do before or you can’t even bear the thought of seeing him ever again?
