A torrid office love affair…sounds like a good beach read, right? That is, up until it becomes a reality you have to deal with at the office. Several years ago, a friend of mine began dating a peer on another team at her company.
They had moments in the elevator, shared lunches, went on clandestine dates. It was exciting and fun, until things went south and things got awkward. My friend was so uncomfortable that she felt there was nothing she could do but leave a job and company she really liked.
