Relationships at work: where do you draw the line? | Open thread

Office affairs are rife at the BBC, according to Caroline Thomson. Tell us your experiences of love blossoming at work

Outgoing BBC chief operating officer Caroline Thomson had some harsh words for the corporation in a speech she made yesterday before leaving her job, warning it could become “arrogant”, and urging it to strive to be “outward-looking”. She blames it on the BBC’s culture, saying that the senior executives “all eat and drink with each other and marry each other and have affairs with each other and so on.”

Regardless of whether Thomson has a point or not, meeting partners at work is common. We’d like to know: where do you personally draw the line? Is a relationship formed at work always a no-no? If you have worked with a partner, did you manage to keep your personal and professional lives separate – and how did you break the news to your colleagues?
