What's the difference between the office and a singles bar? Well, nothing for some millennials.

According to a study by employee benefits provider Workplace Options, 84 percent of employees aged 18 to 29 say they would date a co-worker, and 71 percent say they think workplace romance is a positive thing that improves performance and morale. Their older colleagues disagree, as only 29 percent of those aged 46 to 65 say they'd consider dating someone they worked with, and 90 percent say it could do more harm than good.
