Let's get one thing straight: there's nothing wrong with a little office romance! Don't write it off completely, especially when the cutie by the copier is totally your type. 

That being said, however, there are a few things you should always keep in mind when pursuing your office crush. CG's when it comes to office romance, always remember: 

1. Be aware of company policy.

Most companies are pretty lenient about inter-office dating—at the most, just drawing the line when both parties are in the same team or when there’s a superior-subordinate relationship. It would be best to check with your HR personnel to be 100 percent sure. If you’re feeling shy, you can probably find it in your copy of the employee handbook.

2. Groom to the max.

To really catch his attention, make sure you look, smell, and feel fresh all day. High on that list? Brushing your teeth in the office! Keep your breath fresh and your teeth white with Closeup, for the added confidence to approach your crush, and maybe strike up a conversation, too. 

3. Keep it professional.

This is Office Etiquette 101; right up there with “Don’t get tipsy at office parties.” What does this mean exactly? Simple: no PDA, no flirting, and definitely your productivity at work should remain awesome. Besides, you don't want to put your guy in an awkward situation, waiting for a kiss or a cuddle, in the middle of the hallway, right? 

4. Don’t give other people a reason to talk.

Don't let an office romance get in the way with your performance at work. People at work generally don't care who you're dating, but if you start to screw up work because you're distracted, that's when the grapevine will start to get fuller. Remember: when it comes to office romance, be responsible and you can totally have your cake and eat it, too!
