Butterflies and love and dating
After I told him a little about her, he asked me a very pointed question: "Marry her? The implication in both examples is that everyone ought to have a string of relationships before settling down. With Hollywood as our vehicle, we Americans have cultivated the expectation of "dating for dating's sake." We seem to believe there is some benefit to attaching oneself emotionally to another person only to tear away again after a year or so, and then repeating the process until eventually becoming jaded, old and single. " If I remember correctly, he actually laughed slightly as he asked the question. The truth was that I just thought she was cute, and she liked me back, so we started dating.It doesn’t matter if you’re dating someone in your field.When I was in my late 20’s, I worked in an office where two people fell in love and ended up getting married and very recently, having a baby. The guy eats Pop Tarts for breakfast every day and his socks smell. Things might get weird if he becomes your boss or you become his.
You can IM him and tell him to meet you in the hallway for a secret, 4 o’clock kiss or have dinner in the break room when you have to work late. On a tight deadline, you have an ally to collaborate with.
For them, dating each other regardless of their co-worker status was the right thing to do. It will suck to have to treat him like a colleague in staff meetings when all you want to do is jump on him and lick his face. Hopefully, you’ll still get butterflies despite this. There’s a good chance that this will send one of you off into the job market, searching for a new place of employment …
My take is that it’s limiting to have a strict “no dating in the workplace” policy because, well, what if? You don’t have to wonder whether he’s a womanizer (he’s come alone to the last five company Christmas parties) or a pathological liar because you know where it works. Best case scenario: it’s you and he’s happy for you and you can celebrate your successes together and money and status don’t become an issue. The person you’re dating works in the same building. Get ready for an awful lot of gossiping about weird co-workers and venting about clients on the weekends.
But it’s not just blonde women who have got the pulses racing, with blonde male icons such as James Dean, Robert Redford and Leonardo Di Caprio capturing hearts worldwide too.
Whatever the reason, blonde hair is here to stay and we love it.
