Depending on what you do for a living she will think she has all the power at work and she will flaunt it. Watch a few episodes of Mad Men, that will be your life.

I "dated" one if that's what you want to call what 23 year olds do these days.

I was apprehensive at first - only because it was both our first jobs out of college and the stereotype of it had to be secret was in my head - but somehow alcohol fixed that when we'd go out. Eventually it was sort of known we were doing what we did.

We only hooked up for about 6 months but because we were on the same level as far as our careers it wasn't any big deal - plus she was in a different department.

I probably wouldn't have done it however if there was an 8 year age gap as stated as it gets a little messy when there are various job titles involved.

At the end of the day though it's not like it was 20 years ago. It's not nearly as big a deal.

Dipping your pen in the company ink is tricky business.

As long as you're at least 26, It should be ok. Although, expect to eat a huge turd sandwich at some point.

Got I hope you're not above 70.

Think with the head on your shoulders, not the one in your pants. How is she as a person? If it's someone at work - you'll be dealing with her for a while after if it doesn't work out.

With this much info, it sounds like an awful idea. Dating a coworker can lead to loss of the job. Think long and hard (heh heh, that's what she said) about the situation and how any possible negative repercussions could affect said job.

Married a co-worker and we just celebrated our 4-year anniversary, so there's nothing wrong with it.

However, at a previous job, I dated a co-worker and it caused problems with management (we were fine, but management didn't like it at all). You need to find out if it's cool to date within the office before jumping in.

Keep in mind anything she can use against you in the work place if something goes wrong. Are you a florist? Then, go ahead. Are you a proctologist? Then, I'd say no.

I've never had a job, been in a relationship or seen female genitalia since I was birthed, but you should go for it.

Depends what you do for a living.

If you are an attorney or teacher or multiple other professional positions - NO

Restaurant, Home Depot or Department store, etc... YES!

What do you do for a living?
