Office Romances – Do They Ever Work Out?

by Linda Franklin 

Risky Business

We spend so much time working, it comes as no surprise, that office affairs are on the rise.  Apparently, one in four office workers gets romantically involved with a colleague at some point in time. And, one in ten are having sex somewhere in the workplace.

In any sexual encounter it takes two to tango.   But why is it that the woman is the one who ends up holding the short end of the stick?

Apparently, the old double standard is alive and well in the workplace, so when an office romance ends up on the rocks it’s the man who gets to hold onto his job. The old boys club sticks together. Even though it’s completely biased, the woman who has had an affair with a colleague is  regarded with more prejudice than the man she has been sleeping with.

So, knowing all of the pitfalls, why are so many women throwing caution to the wind?  Sometimes it’s just too  irresistible to pass up.   It started  with an innocent flirtation, and the attention she is getting is exciting.   Someone is telling her how pretty and how sexy she is.  And, we can’t forget the power factor.  Power is one of the greatest aphrodisiacs there is for both men and women..  A man or woman who is smart, confident and successful is a definite turn on.

Temptations are all around you.  Be careful and be smart.  You’ve heard it before it’s never a good idea to play where your bread is buttered. 

The Real Cougar Woman is a 5-carat diamond who knows the importance of taking care of her health, beauty, relationships, finances and spirituality. Linda Franklin says,”there is no stopping a woman who has a strong belief system, passion and a dream. All things are possible”. Linda’s book, Don’t Ever Call Me Ma’am helps women of all ages tap into their power and live life to the fullest.
