What do you think? Dangerous? Innapropiate? Fun? Annoying?

ehhh never a good idea in my experience. distracts from working and can cause personal problems at times.

Yes to all of your suggestions. It really depends on the person, the reciprocation, and the manner it which it occurs and the circumstances it leads to.

I think it's a bad idea personally. Although where I work there are a lot of married couples who both work there and they met at work....so I guess sometimes it can work out.

Even if you are just work pals with a member of the opposite sex, people LOVE to gossip.
My co worker likes to joke that if it were not for sexual hassasment at work, he never would have met his wife. ( They met at a different company)

Personally, I would not do it because I don't think it is a good idea career wise.

I am sure it happends alot, as work is where people spend a lot of time, it depends where you work.. and how long you intend to stay there. When I was at uni, I bartended and waited tables, and flirting with the male bartenders was fine and not frowned upon. I won't do that at my corporate job.

In today's litigious society, it's a tad on the dangerous side.

I flirt with everyone all the time, it is my personality. It rarely gets beyond flirting as it is meant to be fun and make people feel good.

For me personally, I wouldn't do it. Being the supervisor it would get me in a lot of trouble.

I think it depends on your definition of flirting.

For instance, someone does me a favor I might say; "Oh I loooove you." Reply might be, "Oh honey you know you my only one." A silly form of flirting. We laugh and no one takes it serious.

If you are refering to the flirting that goes in front of a possible hook up or relationship. No, absolutely not, never at work.

I work with women only, so we just tend to restrict ourselves to the occasional ass-grope.

Working around men all day, it's practically expected of me. It doesn't go further than slight banter.

i used to flirt all the time when i worked with men. it was great fun. problems would only come about when someone would want to take things beyond flirting.
now that i work with women, i don't flirt. work is a bit more boring these days <g>.

Depends on the person and the current relationship you have with them.

It can be very very very fun.

But probably inappropriate and stupid.

Flirting at work

Some times it seems totally like the thing to do. A number of my crushes have been this,
and it was always free from problems.

Yeeeesh your pulling customers into the janitors closet? :lol:

I know how much you like that Wally world dressing room. :p

I haven't got a janitor's closet. :foh:

And I believe you're quite fond of that dressing room as well, mister. :bigblue:

Nah we'd just sneak out of work earlier,
or this one time he caught me behind a stack of pallets....
:cutie:

REPEAT!!
VERY VERY FUN.
VERY VERY STUPID.

I've flirted with a few clients that i see once a year at most, but considering my co-workers are mostly stay-at-home mom's working part time, or retired older men, I don't flirt with them. And even with the client flirting, its mostly just friendly chit chat, nothing major.

It all dependes on the people. I can't help but flirt. It is ingrained into my system.

flirting at work...

completely inapropriate(sp), annoying, and dangerous. especially if you have one of those jobs that means it could cost you your job (or even jail time depending on circumstances that are sometimes completely absurd).

of course, i think flirting is inapropriate(sp) and dangerous anyway unless its with a significant other given the definition of the word flirt.

:wtf: ok... what if you dont have a significant other?

Excluding some exceptions, I wouldn't say that it's a good idea. If all that flirting leads to a relationship which in the end doesn't work, you still have to see that person every single time you go to work. Not something I'd look forward to :blech:

As the only girl in an office full of boys, and a girl in what is traditionally a "mans" market (I manage a construction firm) If i did'nt flirt at the office, it would be problematic for me. They guys work well with me partly cause they know I can roll with the punches and dont' take everything personally.

However, in my last job (I managed a grocery store) it would have been entirely utterly inappropriate, and possibly would have cost me my job.

so, even though I am an utter and unabashed flirt, i have to say it really depends on the circumstances and the comfort level of those around you.

if you dont have an SO and the person youre flirting with doesnt have an SO, its all fair game. (sorry, i left that out in my first post.)

This is mine, too.
Even with people who come in my office; they know it's a man's market, and so they're going to flirt. I don't unless they start, then I'm all for the banter. But nothing ever physical, just harmless banter between myself and my co-workers, or my regular customers.

I've always thought it was good, harmless, fun so long as it didn't go past a certain level.

However, about two weeks ago my manager resigned admist rumors that he'd been having an affair with a co-worker for 10 or so years. All sorts of hell have come down on my department, and I believe this played a part in it so my oppinion is changing, at least for people with authority.
