Watch out for Cupid's arrow at the office this Valentine's Day. According to CareerBuilder's annual office romance survey of more than 4,000 workers nationwide, dating a co-worker is a fairly common occurrence, with 39 percent of workers saying that they have dated a co-worker at least once during their career and 17 percent dating co-workers at least twice. But does inter-office dating have to end up as a bad romance in your HR folder? Not necessarily. Thirty percent of those who have dated a co-worker say that their office romance led them to the altar.
