Big Brother’s coach Britney Haynes is under a lot of pressure after losing two players in one week. One player, JoJo Spatafora, was nearly unanimously voted out of the house and off the reality show. However, Shane Meaney voted for her to stay. After her eviction, Spatafora told People about the “show-mance” between her and Meaney, saying their relationship was, “all just for fun,” not for love. She continued by saying, “you get lonely in the house. There were no feelings on my end and I’m pretty sure on his too. I like to spice things up and make the show exciting.” So, it was all just to make the reality show interesting after all, but they remain “really good friends,” because they had the same coach.
What do you do if you fall for someone at work?
Mixing business and pleasure can always be tricky. If you fall for a coworker, consider these tips for handling the situation carefully:
1. Make a list of pros and cons: The classic tactic of weighing costs and benefits always works. If you value your career over dating your new crush, it’s time to move on. If you think that this new special someone is worth at least a shot at dating, add them to your “pro” list and go on a couple of dates.
2. Don’t try to keep it a secret: The more secretive you are at work, the more chances you have of getting caught and undergoing some sort of co-worker penalty. If you’re very open about your crush at work and don’t try to hide the flirting from others, no one will be surprised when you two go out on dates and hit it off. That way, you’ll stay out of trouble and get the best of both worlds in business and pleasure.
3. Take things slow: When dating someone in the same work force, take things slow. You won’t be able to bear looking at your co-worker if he ended up being a one-night stand, and even if you get too hot and heavy in the beginning, you don’t want things to fizzle out right away. If you take things slow you’ll be able to maintain that attraction and not have that awkward interference in the work place.
