Romance at work isn't such a good idea after all

August 5, 2014

I hooked up with a girl I work with and now it’s a bit awkward, which is affecting our team progress. What should I do?


Sweetheart,

Hook ups with co-workers are not uncommon, but do often lead to uncomfortable situations in the workplace. If you feel like it’s affecting your team progress, she may also be feeling the same. Mama Luv would suggest talking to her about it to make sure you two are on the same page. If both of you can agree that it was a one night thing with no feelings involved, then things should get better at work. However, if one of you have feelings involved, then it should be known and discussed in order to clear up the awkwardness at work! Don’t forget to keep your chin up, strut with confidence, and shake what your mama gave ya! Mama Luv is here to help.

Love, Mama Luv

Hooking up with someone you know can really make things awkward, especially if you work with them in a professional environment. I think your best plan of action would be to grab a cup of coffee, or a casual lunch with her and talk things out. Let her know what your thoughts are, and listen to hers as well. I think avoiding the situation or pretending it never happened will make things even more awkward!
