A：What is it, Chen Hao?
A：Then why don't you?
A：You're smart to check it out first. We used to have that policy, but our management decided that we spend so much time at work and with co-workers that it wasn't fair to impose that restriction.
A：But there are a few issues you should consider if you are going to date Kate or any other co-worker.
A：Before you get serious, you need to discuss what you will do if things don't work out. You will want to avoid any bad feelings between you.
A：That's exactly what I mean. I have seen it happen. When co-workers stop dating, one or both will often try exact some sort of revenge in the office.
A：So how did your date go? Kate did accept, didn't she?
A：What did she say?
A：Even if they pressure you? Some people can be pretty nosy and persistent. They'll want to know every detail of your relationship.
A：I guess you'll be seeing her again.
A：That is another danger of dating a co-worker.
A：That's right. If your productivity and performance begin to suffer, others will notice and you will jeopardize your position.
A： The first thing is to know the company policy. Decide how you will handle the relationship around the office and what you will do if things don't work out.
