  • Do not repeatedly ask the same co-worker to go on a date if he or she has said no even one time. No means no. Period. Move on.
  • Do get to know your potential date well before you ever go out. Sharing the same work environment means there are far more potential consequences if the date goes bad. As much as possible, know what you’re getting into.
  • Do start out slowly. If you take things slowly in the beginning, the chances of a bad ending are lessened.
  • Do agree to set up relationship rules. Here’s an example: No flirting at work.
  • Do not be afraid to talk about sexual harassment. Be open and honest with each other by candidly discussing the issues on your mind — even those that might be a bit scary to address out loud.
  • Do be ready to address the rumors in the office! Gossip thrives in every workplace, large or small. Be prepared to address the rumors with your employer. Tell the truth and promise you will keep your relationship professional when you’re at work. If you make your employer feel comfortable with the relationship, all should be fine.
