A staggering 80 per cent of us would prefer to unearth their perfect partner at work, a new study has revealed.
According to the 2,000 men and women polled, hunting for a new partner is easier at work because there’s no awkward getting-to-know-you stage involved.
But not just any colleague will do. 73 per cent of the women asked said that they would rather date a man in senior role, with 61 per cent revealing that they find a powerful male more attractive than any other sort.
With more and more people spending more and more of their lives, it stands to reason that busy people looking for romance may find it hard to look beyond the water-cooler. If only there were ways of meeting new people quickly and risk-free?
The reasons for this, according to the Flirt.com survey, included the amount of alcohol consumed during the office festive bash and because eagle-eyed colleagues will be watching your progress.
Speaking about the results, a spokesman for the dating site said: ‘We spend such a large proportion of our lives at work so we wanted to find out what our singles actually thought about getting together with a colleague.
‘What we found is that most people have thought about someone at work at some point, and many more have acted upon it.’
So, it’s a straight choice: get into a messy office romance, or check out this particular dating site.
