Sometimes, working a 9 to 5 office job can get a bit monotonous.
It's not uncommon to find oneself daydreaming about more blissful things, like a beach vacation, fun night out or even a whirlwind romance.

But most people never act on any of those things while they're at work, right?
Well, according to a new study conducted by Victoria Milan, one of the world's leading social networks for those seeking an extramarital affair (yes, sites like these do actually exist), it looks like the office romance fantasy may not be so much of a fantasy anymore.
The survey polled over 5,000 of the site's active female members — meaning that all polled had engaged or were currently engaged in an extramarital affair.
The data showed that a shocking 38 percent of these women said that their "first adulterous adventure was with a colleague or boss at work" compared to a mere nine percent of women who had their first affair with a friend.
Maybe those seemingly harmless office crushes aren't as harmless as they appear.
Founder and CEO of Victoria Milan, Sigurd Vedal, points out that the logic behind why this may be:
"Office relationships are easy because working overtime is a plausible excuse that is unlikely to be questioned. Women bond with the people they are spending long hours with and sharing the stress of daily work life."
No matter how far you decide to take your relationships with your co-workers, just remember — You can't clock overtime for office hours where you're not actually working.
