Tamsen: Hey, everybody, Matt and Tamsen here where we get real about love, today’s topic, sex in the work place Matt: Well, that’s the best place to have sex, in the work place. Tamsen: Oh, that’s not what we’re talking about. We’re talking about finding somebody meeting them and sleeping with them. Matt: Right. Tamsen: Total disaster. Matt: Well, you know, everybody meets each other at work. I mean, that’s the place w here everybody goes. It’s where you are most of the days of your life and it’s bound to happen. You’re gonna be attracted to somebody that you see consistently. Why? What’s the problem? Tamsen: Yeah. But it’s not gonna be a nightmare because here’s what I know. I know hat I’ve dated people in the workplace before and here’s what happened. Matt: And yes, you have me, see. Tamsen: And here’s what happens. You go by the coffee pot after you’ve broken up ands it sucks. Matt: That’s a lot cooler. Tamsen: You go by the water cooler after you’ve broken up and it sucks. You go to a meeting and you feel like they’re staring at you the whole time and then you can’t gossip about the new guy that you’re seeing because the old guy is still sitting around, so not a good place. Do not mix business and pleasure. No business or pleasure. Matt: You’re dating multiple guys in work place. You see, I was just gonna date one woman in the work place. Tamsen: Well, unless you’re marrying her. Matt: Well, what’s gonna happen? Honestly, you keep your issues out of the 95. Everything that happens, it happens, you know like if it happens in Vegas, it stays in Vegas. When it happens outside of the work place, it stays out side the work place. Tamsen: No way. Matt: Why? Tamsen: Crazy. You’re crazy. It will never happen and cause this total disruption and more importantly, bigger problem if you are dating somebody whose like a superior, complete nightmare. I’ve seen people’s careers like go down in flames as a result of that. Matt: People should be mature enough to keep their feeling of intimacy and emotion out of the 95 arena and you know… Tamsen: You’re totally naïve. Matt: I’m not naïve. I’ve done it before. I’ve dated many girls at work place and let me tell you something… Tamsen: Many had to leave the job. Matt: It’s worth while I was the owner of the business. So, actually, they left the job but it was a great situation. Everybody liked his friends and I was really happy. Tamsen: Nice. All right, this is a completely controversial issue because I think there’ll be two sides to it and unfortunately, everyone ids gonna be on my side. Matt: I doubt it. Guys out there, you know how it is. How hard is it to keep your feelings billed up and not tell a beautiful co-worker or a beautiful employee how you feel? Go for it. Let her know. Keep it out of the work place and make love happen. I think it’ll work beautifully. Tamsen: Oh, please. All right, let us know what you think about it, sex in a workplace, good idea, not good idea, not good idea, not good idea. Matt: Good idea. Tamsen: Till next time.
