“Finding new people to date can be hard for someone who works hard!” says dating site

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.
