80 Percent of Workers Want an Office Romance
Office romances are more popular than you think. A new survey shows that 80 percent of people think that the office is the ideal place to find love.
The survey, which involved 2,000 men and women, reveals that people feel like it's easier to find partners at work because they get to skip the awkward getting-to-know-you stage.
The survey also reveals that 73 percent of female respondents said they would rather date a senior member, with 61 percent admitting that they find a powerful man more attractive.
On the other hand, the majority of men said they would rather date a junior member of the team.
The study revealed that more than 80 percent of men said that they like it when female colleagues go to the office wearing sexy outfits. However, three out of four men said that they find it hard to concentrate when an employee they like is around.
The poll also revealed that the majority of people want to keep an office fling secret until they have established whether or not the relationship was serious.
The survey revealed that that the best place to cement a workplace romance would be anywhere but the office Christmas party for 62 percent of respondents.
"We spend such a large proportion of our lives at work so we wanted to find out what our singles actually thought about getting together with a colleague," said spokesman for dating site Flirt.com, according to the Daily Mail. "What we found is that most people have thought about someone at work at some point, and many more have acted upon it."
