Office romance happens when you secretly flirt or have intense and intimate relations with your work partner. This often happens between male and female work colleagues. The advanced form of office romance can also be between a subordinate and a superior ( an example is a boss and his secretary).
Office romance remains a controversial topic as some people argue that it has some advantages which often lead to marriage. But in this article, YEN.com.gh will share with you some reasons why office romance is a secret killer.
1. You will sacrifice your job for pleasure
Most, if not all cases of office romance have resulted in workers sacrificing their work productivity for love. A workplace is a place meant to work so that any other things involved sadly affects productivity. You cannot survive at work if all you do is having secret hangouts with a colleague or superior.
2. You will always fear someone knows
So long as it's a secret engagement, you will always find that both partners will feel someone is watching. This is all due to the guilt associated with the act. What this results in is a choice to now pretend nothing is going on and with pretense comes lies and untruth.
3. You will suffer from insecurity
How will feel seeing the one you secretly making out with hugging another colleague at work? The issue of insecurity is high when it comes to office romance. This is because both partners will always get jealous when they find each other getting nicer and closer to another work colleague. This is unhealthy.
4. You will open doors to promiscuity
The sad thing about office romance is that the very people who engage in it are mostly couples. This is a secret act which builds up the spirit of promiscuity among married men and women. It's purely a breeding ground for cheating.
5. You will be the talk of town
Ever thought about what could happen if colleagues at work get to know you are secretly making out with a work colleague? This will mean you being mocked and gossiped at. This will mean you and your secret lover being blamed for every bad thing that happens in the office.
6. You will never get to marry a secret love
One hard truth about office romance is that both parties never get to marry each other at the end of the day. This is a sad truth but the reality as well. Come to think of it, how could a man marry the very work colleague he secretly makes out with at office? It rarely happens.
