It was found that 10 percent of office goers worked with someone they would like to date, and 18 percent had dated a co-worker twice or more at some time in their careers.

On the other hand, when it came to eyeing a co-worker, the figures were quite distorted-14 percent of men, but just five percent of women, said that they would like to date a colleague of those who dated a co-worker in the last year, one third said that it was someone with a more senior position in the company, reports the China Daily.

And among those, 42 percent admitted to have dated their boss, said the survey.

Almost three-fourths of workers said that they never had to make an effort to keep their romance a secret, while 7 percent said that they had left a job due to an office romance.
