63% of Coloradans Would Have a Workplace Romance, New Study Says
Loverboy said it best: everybody's working for the weekend. Yes, many people like their jobs, but I think you'd be hard-pressed to find anyone whose favorite place is work.
Still, the office can serve as a hotspot for budding romance. My parents met at their job in the '90s, and we all saw how well it worked out for Jim and Pam on The Office.
Fictional or not, workplace romances do come with their fair share of scandals. Affairs, HR violations, and gossip abound — despite these risks, Coloradans don't seem to care.
According to a new study from Moneypenny, 63% of Colorado residents are open to having a romantic relationship with a coworker, making us 13% more willing than the average American.
Aside from the Centennial State, residents in Maine, Louisiana, New Hampshire, Washington, D.C., and New Jersey are also more likely to court their colleagues. In general, men aged 18 to 24 are the ones asking out their coworkers.
So, where is the best place to work if you're looking for love? Moneypenny reports that science and pharmaceuticals, tourism, telecommunication services, construction, and accounting are all good careers for shooting your shot.
However, if you're part of the one-third of Americans who think office romances are a no-go, consider taking a job in Kentucky, Iowa, Montana, Nevada, or Rhode Island — residents in these five states frown upon employee escapades.
You may not love to work, but work sure can help you find love. Find out to increase your chances in the gallery below:
