Cheater’s Guide to an Office Affair

Cheater’s Guide to an Office AffairWe’ve seen and heard about a lot of sugar daddy/sugar baby rela­tion­ships that start in the work­place. After all, if you’re a younger woman, it can be a good place to meet a rich older man. But from our expe­ri­ence, a lot of office romances start as affairs, which makes sense, because a lot of peo­ple, espe­cially in the cor­po­rate world, spend more wak­ing hours at work than at home with their sig­nif­i­cant oth­ers. It doesn’t take long for sparks to fly.

But how far are you will­ing to go for the ulti­mate office romance, and how much are you will­ing to give up for it?

A pop­u­lar dat­ing web site for peo­ple seek­ing out affairs recently sur­veyed their mem­bers and found that almost half (42%) have already had an affair with a boss or co-worker, and a whop­ping 81% admit­ted to at least fool­ing around with some­one at work. But that’s not all.

It turns out that peo­ple who are will­ing to cheat with an office romance would likely cross other moral bound­aries as well. Two-thirds (67%) of the respon­dents said they would be open to hav­ing an affair with their supe­rior at work “for a salary raise or promotion.”

If you’re going to pur­sue an office romance with a rich older man, whether it’s an affair or not, make sure you know what you’re get­ting into. You could both risk los­ing your job or even worse, depend­ing on your company’s pol­icy. And even if you don’t get caught, you’ll still have to face each other if your office romance doesn’t work out or ends badly. Even the par­tic­i­pants in this sur­vey real­ize that it can be very risky—82% said that they think an affair at work is more dam­ag­ing than cheat­ing with any­one else.

What do you think: Have you ever had an office romance? If so, was it worth it?
