We spend a great portion of our day on our jobs, and many singles have found true love at their place of employment. Though many corporations even have written policies against office romances, most don't care. But what do you do if the love is one-sided? When does an honest expression of interest turn into sexual harassment or stalking? Some people don't take rejection well, and a breakup that has to be handled at the workplace is likely to cause problems for one or both parties. Is it smart to seek love at work or is this something we should avoid at all cost? Joining me to discuss workplace romance and civility in the face of rejection is Clinical Social Worker and Asst. Prof. Daniel L. Buccino, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Maryland.
