I work in the hospitality industry, I notice a lot of relationships, start there, some end horribly,(most it seems). The company does have rules about dating in the same department. I just curious what do you think.

I for the most part would tend to shy away from people at work. I know things happen but one bad one could cost you your job, your reputation, and self worth.

I can see going out and have as a group socially but when it gets close...

I thinking dating someone you work with is only going to lead to trouble.......if it ends and thats always a big possibility, all those mutual friends who say they would never choose sides.........will choose sides making it a hostile work place and if one person is higher in rank it can even lead to a sexual harrassment suit even tho it was at the beginning mutual..........JMHO

I did that once... But the Co. I worked for didnt have the rules You have!
Its was awesome for 4 months(we saw each other Every day! )....then we split up.
Then everyday after that, I would see her and remember what I thought we had.....(Just awesome Sex I guess!).....
I'll never do it again! (I Hope Not that is!) lol
My 2 cents!

I dated a co-worker one time. I knew it wasn't a good idea to begin with but I've always been one that had to learn the hard way. I'm so glad I outgrew that... lol
When we quit seeing each other we still had to work together every day. Friends weren't sure what to say or what to do around either of us, since we all hung around in a group before that. He started dating another girl we worked with for about 2 weeks and dumped her.
She got mad at me because she felt he only went out with her to get at me, because her and I were friends, and I should have warned her.
Not a situation I would do again......

Believe it or not companies make these rules for a very good reason.

Many years ago I when I worked for McDonnell Aircraft in St.Louis I dated an engineer. Naturally I thought I was his "one and only". Just as if it had been written in a comedy sketch I ran into several gals (who also worked there but in different departments), one Friday night who were also dating him.

There we were sitting at the bar, mingling when we started discussing our "boyfriends" and quickly discovered it was the same man. He was goooooood at keeping a "schedule" so he didn't get confused.

The only thing I can say is that come Saturday night...he didn't have a date....

Never a good idea!! As my dear old pop used to say, you don't get your meat where you get your bread.

I work in a hotel as well, rules here state no playing with guests on company property but I usually tell the guys they can't afford me, cause if I loose my job, they will be paying rent, grocery, car and other living expenses and none of them look like they make an NBA star's money,

My rules....lol...off limits are

Married- for all the obvious reasons...high maintenance, to much trouble and they never have any money either!
Drunks..to messy and to hard to get rid of in two hours!
Co-workers...you have to face everyday...and no guarantee they will keep their mouths shut...especially the men! Nope...off limits no matter how nice they are!

Dating at work - no way! you don't eat where you poop. I'm a supervisor - and this past week the rumor mill got back to me that two people I suppervise may have some kind of inappropriate hanky-panky going on. Inappropriate because they are co-workers and inappropriate because they are both married! What they do before 8am and 5pm is none of my business - but between those hours - no way! I really don't wanna know if it's true because I will lose all respect for both of them.
