Could Your Workplace Friendship Become a Workplace Romance?
Monday, February 12, 2007  6:55:00 AM

by Ruth Houston



Business/Investing
Take this quiz to find out if your friendship with a co-worker is in danger of becoming a workplace romance.

Two recent news events have raised many questions about workplace romance and office affairs.  The arrest of NASA Astronaut Lisa Nowak for the attempted kidnapping of a perceived rival for the affections of a fellow astronaut,  and San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom’s public apology for having an affair with his campaign manager’s wife highlight the problems that can arise when people become involved in office romance and workplace affairs.


“A workplace friendship with someone of the opposite sex can easily become a workplace romance.” says infidelity expert Ruth Houston, founder of www.InfidelityAdvice.com   Houston, author of Is He Cheating on You? – 829 Telltale Signs cautions, “Anytime workmates of the opposite sex work in close proximity on a regular basis for extended periods of time, the potential for workplace romance or office affairs exists.
 


To find out if your (or your partner’s) workplace friendship is in the danger zone, take Ruth Houston’s Workplace Romance Quiz below.


1.  Are you concealing information about your workplace friendship from your spouse or significant other?

2.   Do you confide in your workplace friend now instead of your spouse?

3.  Do you find yourself turning to your workplace friend for emotional support?

4.  Is your workplace friend more fun to be with than your spouse? 

5.  Do you complain to your workplace friend about your spouse or your marriage?

6.  Do you devote more time, attention or energy to your workplace friend than you devote to your spouse?

7.  Do you concoct reasons or create excuses to be with your workplace friend?

8.  Do you miss your workplace friend when you're not together?

9.  Do you find your workplace friend sexually attractive? 

10.  Do you use your workplace friend as a sounding board for your personal problems?

11.  Would you act differently toward your workplace friend  if your spouse were present?

12.  Do you fantasize about your workplace friend ?

13.  Would your spouse be upset to see how you interact with workplace friend?

14.  Would you be uncomfortable with the situation if your spouse or significant other had a similar workplace friendship with someone of the opposite sex? 


SCORING:  Count your total number of yes answers.


1 - 4  This is a  relatively harmless workplace friendship unless you answered yes to both questions 1 and 9.  That automatically puts your friendship in the danger zone.

5 - 8   This is workplace friendship that is dangerously close to becoming a workplace romance.  If you answered yes to both 1 and 9, it's already there.

9 - 14  This is a workplace friendship which has already advanced to the level of a workplace romance.  As such, It poses a VERY serious threat to your marriage or relationship.
