Flirt­ing Success

‘I grabbed his butt’

More than 30% of cou­pled col­leagues even­tu­ally tie the knot, ac­cord­ing to a Ca­reer Builder sur­vey. Here’s how it started for these women: ‘I met up with my for­mer su­pe­rior, now-hus­band, at a bar for his birth­day. I walked up be­hind him and grabbed his ass! Im­me­di­ately, I was like, WTF did I just do? But the flirty move paid off. I went back to his place for an af­ter-hours party, and we spooned on the couch all night. Af­ter that, we started hang­ing out reg­u­larly. A few months later, once we knew it was go­ing some­where, we told a su­per­vi­sor and asked her where we should go from there. The only thing that changed was that he re­viewed my work less.’ -ME­GAN, 27, AC­COUN­TANT

‘We had a se­cret code’

‘My now-fi­ancée and I went to great lengths to be se­cre­tive at the of­fice. Dur­ing the day, we’d leave sexy Post-it notes on each other’s desks but sign them with a code so no- one knew who they were from.’ -BETH, 38, EDITOR
