WorkPlace 101: The Office Romance.

My quest to visit all 48 contiguous states continues this week, as I find myself far from home in a lonely hotel room down by the river. I'm here in The First State, the home of Joe Biden and Joe Flacco, the blink-and-you-missed-it I-95 rest stop otherwise known as Delaware.

Truth be known, I actually lived here in Delaware briefly in the mid-90's when I interned at a large financial institution to remain undisclosed. I liked it here, although the state's biggest advantages are it's lack of sales taxes and proximity to major East Coast cities like NYC, Philly, DC, and B'More. Delaware itself? Meh.

Still, my brief summer here taught me a lesson I would carry with me for the rest of my professional life: Do not evar, evar, evar, under any set of bizarre circumstances, evar date a co-worker!!!

I'm married, and long since off the market, so I'll spare ya'll all the drama. Besides, my wife reads this site from time to time, and I don't wanna have that convo once I get back to DC. But let's just say I learned my lesson abundantly.

Forgive my total and complete lack of context, but I'd like to hear your opinions on this issue.

Question: Is it okay to date a coworker? Do you have any particularly bad experiences you'd like to share with the rest of AverageNation™?
