Does dating at the job work
Previously, courtship rituals had taken place in private places, almost always chaperoned by relatives or other authority figures.If you were well off, the scenario might have looked like a Jane Austen or George Eliot novel."You're creating a climate where people are going to see bias whether there really is bias or not."Relationships with your peers are generally more acceptable—assuming they're unhitched.A stunning 20% of people who told Career Builder that they had dated someone at the office admitted that at least one person in the relationship was married.
So in a sense, are you saying that dating has its roots in women entering the workforce? Starting in the 1890s and 1900s, a huge number of young Americans began moving to cities and a huge number of women in particular began working outside of homes—their own homes, or homes where they might have worked as governesses or maids.
A recent survey by Career Builder found that nearly 40% of employees admitted to having a romantic relationship with a co-worker.
And a whopping 31% of office relationships result in marriage—meaning they can't always be a bad idea, right?
Perhaps that makes sense given the amount of time we spend at work: In an office relationship, you can relate to the struggles someone faces from 9 to 5, says Brownlee.
While every generation will lament anew the fact that finding love is hard, history seems to indicate that this particular social ritual never gets any easier or less exciting.
