Know that dating in your industry can get messy
Having a good working relationship with co-workers and colleagues can lead to more… intimate relationships. If you can handle that (and that’s the first thing you have to determine), then I’m all for going after love. I’m a hopeless romantic.
But know, if things don’t work out, it can get messy. You have to be prepared to be professional whether the relationship thrives or fizzles out. There might be some awkwardness. Maybe some discomfort. Word could even get out that something is going on. Be ready to handle that with dignity, tact, and even some transparency. Keep the details private however.
