My sister two years ago experienced a girlfriend boyfriend almost relationship between one of her officemate. The guy started it all, showing special care to my sister into which my sister after sometime misinterpreted it as something unusual and special. The situation continues with some misunderstanding as if they are really in a relationships though there were no verbal declaration that they were and after two years end up nothing...no clearance on both side and what's left is heartache for all we know on my sister part. Then the guy just move out from their office and the communication even for friendships gradually fade. His boss advises and quotes not to fall in love with your officemate which i beg to dissagree at some point and agreed at some point. How about you? What is your opinion about this?

Office relationships aren't always what they seem like on t.v. I don't think anyone should have a relationship with another in the office especially when it is unsure as to if one or the other have a bf, gf, or husband.

I think office relationship is something you should avoid. If it happen to be good, then it is still OK. However, if the relationship turn worst it will affect your working spirit and concentration. Your colleagues will see you like some ways which make you feel uneasy. Beside that, you have to see your partner everyday and everytime. You go home, u meet your GF/BF. At work, u see the same face. Don't you feel bored? I know a relationship should not have this kind of bore feeling. But if you see the same face everyday and every minutes, I am sure u will feel bore. Ones should have their own privacy, time and friends. happy mylotting

You cant tell people whom and whom not to fall in love with. If he's just following his bosses advice then your sister should tell him its stupid and exactly the sentence i wrote above ^. If he loves her enough then they will get together, but if it keeps 'fading' as you say... then she's probably better off without him to be honest.
