You know what they say: Don't defecate where you eat. ("They" use a word other than "defecate," but you get the point lol) But sometimes you have such chemistry with a coworker that you've got to see what becomes of it, even if it means going to unbelievable lengths to conceal your romance from colleagues. With that in mind, Cosmo has compiled a list of 12 problems only people dating a coworker understand. They are:

  1. The devastating awkwardness of figuring out if you should kiss each other goodbye.
  2. Debating whether or not to send that inappropriate email.
  3. Negotiating a quickie during lunch. 
  4. Feeling obligated to have lunch with them every single day.
  5. If you live together, being together nonstop.
  6. If you're not working a 9-to-5, just hoping you wind up on the same schedule.
  7. Fighting over interoffice politics.
  8. Your coworkers acting really awkwardly when they walk in on the two of you.
  9. Overcompensating with professionalism.
  10. The grand debate over whether to leave the office separately for date night.
  11. Seeing each other at work when you're having a big fight at home.
  12. Hating him momentarily when you're up for the same promotion.
