Barbara Pachter is a business etiquette expert who says if you happen to be dating a co-worker on Valentines Day, the smart, safe choice is not to flaunt your fling around the office.
Pachter says, You shouldnt let it all hang out on Valentines Day. Use the same discretion you do the rest of the year. Go out after work. You dont need to be kissing in the meeting room.
Because people spend so much time at work, Pachter says people find it easy to date a co-worker, but it can also be dangerous.
She says, If it doesnt end well, everybody knows everything.
And the workplace worries are worse if youre secretly seeing your superior.
Pachter says, You dont want to date your boss. Other co-workers will think youre getting favored. Its awkward for everybody.
