The Unconventional Office Guide: Riding the Rollercoaster of Workplace Relationships from Nick's blog

We all know that the workplace can sometimes feel like a thrilling amusement park ride – there are ups, downs, and unexpected turns. One of the wildest rides? The one where you find yourself drawn to your boss – and yep, you've guessed it – he's married! While it sounds like the plot of a Hollywood movie, it's a scenario some find themselves in. Although we absolutely DO NOT endorse diving into this whirlpool, let's take a hypothetical rollercoaster ride to explore the upsides that theoretically might exist.

##1. Becoming an Office Whiz

Imagine having your own crystal ball that gives you insights into office happenings that others aren't privy to. A 2019 Vault survey showed that 58% of employees in office romances felt a boost in their job performance. So, who knows, you might just go from being 'one-of-the-team' to 'Ms. Know-it-all'!

##2. Unofficial Mentorship – Get Your Hogwarts Letter!

Well, not exactly. But you could enjoy the perks of some informal wisdom from your boss! Olivet Nazarene University's 2019 study found mentorship could turbo-charge your professional skills by 76%. So, your boss could inadvertently become your Dumbledore, guiding you through the labyrinth of the corporate world!

##3. Get Linked(In) – No More Networking Nightmares!

Ever wished you could have an automatic networking genie? As per a LinkedIn survey, 80% of professionals consider networking crucial to career success. Engaging with your boss could theoretically grant you access to his influential circle, saving you from awkward networking events.

##4. Spotlight and Stardust: Become the Office Star!

Remember the thrill of being noticed by your school crush? An affair with a boss could place you in the career spotlight, according to a 2018 study by the National Bureau of Economic Research. Your work could receive more attention, leading to more opportunities - a chance to twirl in the spotlight and sprinkle a bit of your stardust!

##5. Office Stress? Get a Secret Weapon!

A study by the Society for Human Resource Management found that emotional support can boost job satisfaction. An affair with a boss could offer you a unique understanding and emotional cushion for those office stresses. Think of it as your secret weapon when those tough office days roll around.
Alright, time to put the brakes on this rollercoaster! Remember, ladies, while these hypothetical upsides might seem appealing, there's a much steeper downside. Navigating an affair with a married boss could invite a host of issues from reputational damage, emotional harm, to risking your job.
The best rollercoaster ride? The one where you rise through ranks based on your skills, hard work, and talent! Remember, you're the queen of your career castle!

Some woman will say :) Living with fear stops us taking risks, and if you don't go out on the branch, you're never going to get the best fruit.
