The ins and outs of finding love (and sex) in the office

Posted by , 04 February 2014



She’s sent you a pointless message

Her name lights up your inbox like a minor royal in KFC. What do you do? Reply immediately or slave away at a 'witty' response for the next three hours?

“Keep it simple and light-hearted,” says Dr Wheatley. “Often, when you’re being spontaneous, you reveal more of who you truly are, which is a good thing.”

Daniel adds, “Just don’t be the guy who turns everything into sexual innuendo. I’ve been that guy. The first two times it’s cute. The next 50 times it’s creepy.”

The Man is spying on your emails

“If emails are sent using the company’s system, then any messages are the company’s intellectual property and can always be accessed by the IT department,” warns Tara. “If the employer gets wind of any inappropriate messages, it could be classed as abuse of the email system.”

What could be worse than that? How about becoming an in-office – or even global – meme? There’s always the risk of someone in IT circulating the messages.

Last year, a Scottish couple’s steamy email exchanges (“You were very wet!”) were leaked after they embarked on a work fling. They went into hiding soon after. As would you.
