As a Matchmaker and Dating Coach, I often get asked questions about dating people you work with or people you may network with.
You’re a busy “Single” professional, you are at a networking event, maybe out for an “after hours” drink with a business associate and BAM, in walks the woman of your dreams! What if she turns out to be the new intern your company just hired? How do you proceed?
Maybe you are a single woman and you see a guy that you are dying to find out if he is SINGLE!
Dating and business networking can be a touchy area. My Dad always said, “Don’t S%*t where ya eat!”
There’s nothing wrong with getting someone’s card and contacting them later to have coffee. Just keep it business.
Corporate workplace interactions are a bit of another story. This happens often and can lead to quite a mess, please use extreme caution. Know your company policy and brush up on your resume in case you like breaking the rules.
Often times we see many of the same faces at networking events so USE CAUTION not to make a fool of yourself or embarrass anyone else.
Take your time getting to know someone. Watch, wait and see if there may be a mutual interest.
UNSURE of how to tell if someone may be interested? I’ll be writing more on that important topic!
After working with so many clients I want to get them clear on ATTRACTING THE ONE.
