Seven Bad Workplace Romances and One Good One

Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Mark Hurd appears to have inappropriately funneled money to consultant Jodie Fisher for services rendered. Not the HP way.
See also Realities of Workplace Romance, No Recession for Office Romance Cupid has a whole new realm to conquer, but you should think twice before taking a shot from the little guy. According to Ask April — the self-proclaimed #1 free Internet relationship-advice site — office romances are no longer taboo. In fact, says the online love guru, “They are expected.” Why the change from times past, when workplace pairings were off-limits? “Most people work, and since that is where they spend most of their time and energy, it makes sense that that is where they will meet other attractive singles.” Perhaps, but, as the tales of humiliation and woe that follow show, office romances are often disastrous. There are exceptions to every rule, but love business-style, no matter how accepted it may be these days, can still lead to a richness of embarrassment. So sit back, call your significant other (and let’s hope he/she is not sidling over from the office down the hall or cubicle across the room) and take a gander at what can happen in the business of romance. Happy Valentine’s Day, anyway.
