18 people share what it’s like to fall in love at work

There’s a reason why so many of the plots within the beloved NBC series, The Office, revolved around workplace romance — from Jim and Pam (OBVIOUSLY), to Dwight and Angela, to Michael and Holly, even to the dysfunctional, toxic relationships of Michael and Jan and Kelly and Ryan.

Your job can be the ultimate breeding ground for ~true love~. And as these 18 people demonstrate, falling in love at work can be unpredictable and inevitable.

While we certainly wish that every office romance shared the same happy ending of Jim and Pam’s love story, a lot of things can get very confusing. What if a supervisor finds out and threatens to fire you? What if you breakup and still have to see each other at work everyday? What if one of you moves on to another job and you are all by your lonesome self?

And what if you meet your best friend and perfect partner? 18 people tell us what it’s like to fall in love at work, courtesy of Whisper.

I crushed on my boyfriend so long before he asked me out. We work together and sometimes other people bring up the fact that I was obsessed with him before I even knew him 🙈

My gf and I met at our office. It's awkward when other coworkers ask us about it because it feels like an invasion of privacy.Quantcast

I met my boyfriend at work. He makes fun of me because I still work there (at a bar) and he's moved on. It's so obnoxious

I met my gf at work. If she wasn't attracted to me then me approaching her would have been considered harassment. Good thing it worked out...

I met my girlfriend at work. If I were afraid of bullshit sexual harassment policies we wouldn't be moving in together now.

I met my bf at our previous job. We both got new jobs at the same place but now he's quitting. I'm paranoid it's because he doesn't want to be around me.

I'm 32, she's 19. Met her at work. She has a boyfriend, I have a girlfriend. But we just can't stop ourselves.

Clearly, a lot can happen when you spend up to eight hours a day, five days a week in the same place.
