One out of 10 people have faked a job-related emergency to get out of a bad date, according to a poll by Workplace Options, which runs programs to promote work-life balance. Other romantic survey results:
- 31% have dated a co-worker
- 10% have dated their boss.
Even so, respondents cited work as the biggest obstacle in finding time for romance. One out of three people indicated that job responsibilities make it more difficult.
