Looking for love in the office
If you work in a small office, perhaps by yourself, don't despair -you still have customers, suppliers, and so on to flirt with. If, however, you work in a large or shared building, key places to spot singletons are by the vending machines, office kitchen, canteen, sandwich delivery van, smokers' corner, and entrance to the building.
Hearts on fire
Sam noticed a rather luscious man wandering around the building checking the extinguishers. A quick call to reception confirmed that he was a fireman doing an inspection. The combination of gorgeous and fireman was too much to resist. Sam made excuses to be where he was but didn't have the nerve to try and engage with him. Teased by her friends later for not taking the opportunity when she had it, one of her more rebellious colleagues offered to set off the alarm to see if he'd come back. Unfortunately, the alarm was linked directly to the fire station and a whole crew arrived. Sam's hunky fireman wasn't among them, but another took her eye, and while they waited for the all clear to re-enter the building, she took her opportunity to strike up a conversation, which later led to a date. Her friend meanwhile faced a disciplinary for setting off the alarm.
Avoid missing opportunities by striking while the iron's hot - unless you have a friend who's prepared to risk their career for you!
Even if you don't smoke, lots of flirting and business is done in smokers' corner. Take a break from the grind and have a mingle -you may improve more than your love life.
