Is it safe to date someone you work with?Page 1 of 1    
Well I have been "seeing" this girl at work now for about a month we made it very clear that sex was all we wanted now she is asking for more. If I say no I will be labelled a prick but it I say yes and it goes wrong I will be labelled even more of a prick and she may start telling fellow co-workers. How should I break this off?

It never works out! Never mix business with pleasure. Or as my old boss would say, "never crap(toned down term) where you eat. I was in a relationship with a co-worker and it was great at first. We worked as a team and would get a lot of things done. But once we broke up, it was VERY uncomfortable for the both of us. Especially when we had other people visiting from the opposite sex. I ended up quiting a good job because of it.

NO NO NO NO NO NO!!

Never fish off the company pier. It's bad luck.

A month isn't very much ... you were just testing the waters . Be nice , be direct , be honest , and don't let it go on any longer .
Personally I wouldn't date a co worker ... just my preferance .

Been there, done that. I was lucky and it ended with no harm done.

Just make sure all the cards are on the table....as you said, either way it goes you're going to be labelled a prick, so..........

Good luck. I hope whichever way it goes, it goes well for you.
