Deciding whether you should or shouldn't date your co-worker is an age-old debate.I mean, President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama met at work. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt met while filming "Mr. Smith."I met my husband at work when we interned together during college.I need to find the appropriate way to tell my supervisor that I do not want to supervise another intern next year.
Here's the thing, sometimes you become friends with your co-worker crush, but you realize somewhere in the friendship that dating isn't really as appealing as you thought it might be.
You might think you work in a huge office, until you're trying to avoid someone.
One month of being friends isn't enough, by the way.
I was the little HR intern, and he was the little engineer intern. Although, we didn't actually “date” during our internship, but we became an official couple less than a month after our internship ended.
According to Career Builder, 38 percent of people say they have dated a co-worker during their working lives.
If I do have the option to decline this, what is the best way to state it?
I don’t want to come off as lazy or not willing to help, but I can’t keep doing this.
It was a lot of work and was stressful because we have to share the same space which made working with student one-on-one very difficult.
While I shared this with my supervisor, he still found an intern for this year and now I am supervising another intern without any reduction in my normal duties.
Out of that group, 31 percent of those people said their co-worker crush led to marriage.
I'm considering myself lucky that the numbers are that high.
