With lots of careers that requires most of the time in the workplace, it is unavoidable to fall with a co-worker. But what if, someone with a higher rank fall for you or the other way around? Would you go for your boss if he hits on you?

well, i guess that's the perfect answer if you really love the person. Love sometimes needs sacrifice.

Other working places doesnt condemn having relationships with co-workers. If I will have a relationship with someone who has higher position or lower position than me, I would stay professional and dont let my personal life interferes with my work. But if the company doesnt allow having relationship in the working place then we have to think and decide if we will move further in the relationship that might result to resignation of either one of us.

It is a completely personal issue and it is best not to speak about it with a particular notion. what I mean to say is that, those who are in love with their co-workers will remain and it will not feel good to say that it is wrong. That might hurt those who are in love, it might hurt those who date each other, and chances still are that it might hurt those who are really and truely in love and consider this sort of a love not infatuation but true love. Secondly, it is for each one to decide if they should be in love with someone whom they work with.

Of course not. It is not a good start of love in the workplace with that kind of situation. You may be accused of making relationship with hidden agendas. If he really loves you, he will make things right to make your love be at the right spot. The very first question to ask is, do you really feel love? or infatuation? maybe you are just attracted but not in love at all.

I wouldn't. If I have a job, I'd want to keep it and I'd prevent any kind of formal revelations of feelings to another co-worker. Work place relationships aren't looked well upon in an office setting at least. Usually other co-workers have a huge problem with it. But if this person is someone you can see yourself with for the rest of your life then maybe take it subtle as not to incriminate yourself in anyway. If something falls apart, well then nothing happend to begin with. Take that approach.
