Water Coolers and Fix-Ups

After a year of dating and meeting a lot of guys that aren’t a right fit, I finally met someone that I really, really like. I really want to date him and he feels the same, but there’s one big problem… we work together. How do you handle dating someone from the office? This is a tough one because most likely you’re starting a potential relationship with a secret and secrets are just not good things in any relationship. There’s no denying attraction and after a lot of so-so dates it’s hard if not impossible to deny yourself the chance to see where this could go, but there are a few things to really keep in mind… If one of you is below the other on the organizational chart, there could be a

Swiping right at 3pm doesn’t mean you have to strip down with a hot stranger by 6. If your dating blueprint begins with coffee and conversation than stick to the formula that works for you.

Moving on Up and Moving on Out

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year and we’re thinking it’s time to combine households. We’re excited about taking our relationship to the next level, but it’s a little scary too. What’s your advice on moving in together? You’re right about it being a little scary, but you can minimize the fright by going into this new venture with eyes open and all the Ts crossed. Make sure you have a solid game plan for the business side of cohabitation, specifically the financial end of it. Ask yourselves how the monthly expenses will look, plan accordingly (and include contingencies too for the rainy days that are destined to happen) and stick to the playbook you create. The other
