(Washington Post) — Even as many companies implement rules to ban office romance, many workers find themselves willing to take the risk to find love. The Vault 2011 Office Romance Survey found that 65 percent of respondents said the recession has had no effect whatsoever on their willingness to take romantic risks at work, with only 31 percent claiming that they are less willing now than before the recession. Andrew Strieber, producer of Careercast.com, says sustaining a business and personal relationship can be an unsuccessful balancing act.” At least in normal life, if you look at the person you thought you’d marry and suddenly realize that you actually can’t stand the sight of them, you can just break up,” Strieber writes. “But when this person is a work colleague, you may still have to maintain a professional relationship no matter how badly things end. Depending on the circumstances, failing to do so could cost you a raise, a promotion– or even your job.”
