Yesterday, I learned the latest gossip inside my company. Two of my coworkers have started to date each other. They are very discrete because they are never together. I haven’t seen them together at the coffee machine, the mess or at the restaurant below my office where my other coworkers often meet. They arrived separately during our last Christmas party and left separately. She left very early while he was still there when I left. She even told me she loved me before leaving, much to my stupor.
She’s only 24. But she’s very beautiful. He’s 36, divorced, with two children.
She made the error to tell everything to one of my coworkers who can’t keep a secret. He have told everything to several of my coworkers since then. And it arrived to my ears.
Her lover was very mum on the other hand.
Luckily, he’s not his boss. But he has a greater list of contacts than her and knows every boss in my sector. He’s even friend with my former CEO.
But maybe she’s after his.
In other companies, they would be forced to reveal their relationship but it’s not the case in mine.
Love at work is very common nowadays. It happens.
But I’ve noticed the youngest women have much success than the older ones. In my company, there are many women who are single. Yet, he chooses the youngest one.
He could have chosen his coworker, who’s 41, divorced like him. I feel bad for her.
