Do you think that it is not ethical to date your boss? What is natural passion takes shape in your day to day interactions? Are there rules that stop you from falling in love with your boss?

I would say that when you start to have mutual feelings for a boss, someone needs to find employment elsewhere or transfer to a different department so as to avoid any problems in the workplace. That way, you can also continue on with the relationship.

That's very pragmatic. It solves most of the problems, and allows one to be in love, naturally.

I wouldn't do it, but it's possible for others.

It never happened to me, but it did to one of my good friends, back in the days when i worked in a supermarket. She fell in love with our superviser, she was 24, he was 35. The feelings were reciprocated by him, and they started dating. But, then never mixed work with love or vice versa. At work, they were employee and superviser, and he never treated her different than he would any other employee, and when they were out of the work place, they didn't speak about work. They ended up moving in together, they had a little girl, and unfortunately, they recently separated, after 6 years together. I say, as long as you don't mix the two (work and romance), there shouldn't be any problems.

That's really interesting. I agree with you on that. But things usually get unethical when romance and work get mixed. If we follow our sense of judgement, there is not supposed to be any problem.
