  • I think its natural and not something you need to avoid unless there is a conflict of interest in your position.

  • I think it can be awkward if things don't work out if you have to see one another. Other than that I don't see anything wrong with it

  • I dont care if its in different buildings, across the city, on the moon,,,if its the same company,,,dont do it. As someone once told me,,dont meet your honey where you make the money. I didnt listen. I married a co-worker and it didnt work out. People at my job took sides, it was horrible. I would never, ever make that mistake again..

  • I used to date a guy who worked in my building. It is a really big company and he was just one of the mover guys and i was an assistant. He used to take me to the empty offices and stuff to make out. It was soo fun!! but yea after we stopped, it was weird having to see him around.

  • Don't ask me I married my boss!! LOL

  • I never have, but I know a lot of places have policies against inter-building relationships, unless it's a couple that was already married and they both happen to get hired there. From an outsider's persepctive I would say it's an all-around bad idea.
