He wants to keep our relationship a secret because the company we are working for frowns upon inter-office relationships. Even my friends are telling me to find somebody else. What should I do?
Best of luck,
I’m gonna be straightforward with this one. If you can help it, move on and find another guy. There’s a reason why inter-office relationships are shunned by big companies, and it’s even worse for your case because you are involved with your boss! Trust me, it will get complicated as your little affair progresses. Here’s why:
1. Conflict of Interest - It’s the job of your boss to evaluate and discipline you. Praises are easy, but what happens when he needs to call you out on something that you did wrong? It will not be a comfortable situation for either of you.
2. Gossip - It doesn’t matter if you try to hide the relationship. People will see you together. People will talk about you. People will make nasty rumors against you, and even a casual smoke or meeting will become malicious. Your achievements will be questioned, and the integrity of your boss will go down the drain.
3. You will see too much of each other - Working together is a death sentence for a lot of relationships. You will see each other during work and after work. You will hardly have anything else to talk about, and office issues will most likely go straight to the bedroom. It will get suffocating at some point. Having some time apart is healthy for a relationship.
4. Hostility at the workplace - Every relationship has its roadblocks, and it is inevitable to have fights or breakups. This results to a communication issue that will impact productivity at work. If the relationship ends, there will be a lot of tension at work and it may end up costing you your career.
Don’t get me wrong. Some of the best relationships started at the office. But it takes a lot of work and energy to draw a line between personal and professional relations.
