How Much Do Your Co-Workers Know About Your Love Life?

Michael and Kevin throw a lonely hearts club mixer on last night's episode of The Office at the most logical venue for making love connections — the Dunder-Mifflin office. While there's not much that wouldn't be acceptable at this workplace, the episode got me thinking about how much our co-workers know about one of the most intimate parts of our lives. It's likely your colleagues are aware of your relationship status, but how much do they know about the details of your love life?

More than I'd like. I often came straight to work from seeing him, and you can't hide when things are bad.

My department is nothing but all open females so they no a fair amount. They know some major details but nothing serious.

I consider my co-workers my friends, i see them on a daily basis and you form relationships with those people. I don't go into detail about my love life, because there's nothing really to tell. But if i was in a relationship, I would tell my closest co-workers :D

We all eat lunch together and share a lot about all of our personal lives. My Co workers are my friends for the most part.

they know me and the beau went through a rough patch about a year ago, got back together, and he moved back in. i was not very good about hiding how torn i was -not because i said anything but due to my red puffy eyes and frequent sobbing.

my co-workers probably know a little bit about MY love life, but i know a lot more about theirs since they tend to share more than i do. i feel like my boss and my asst talk about their relationship/dating lives ALL the time.

They know I have a boyfriend. I used to when I started working here but then we broke up. No one really asks personal questions like that anyway so it never comes up AND i don't have to worry about being set up.

I have some very close friends at work, so of course, they know a good amount about me. I'm extremely private with people I don't know and people I don't trust though.

My husband and I work in the same company, so even if I don't want to, they know some stuff. There is the occassional co-worker who'll ask one too many questions about our relationship. It can get quite annoying.

Well, they know I'm married, so they just usually leave it at that.

Most of them know I am dating someone and one person knows about my plans to move in with my bf in the next year. I think its weird if they knew about more intimate stuff like when we argue and stuff.

They know I'm single. And they try to fix me up. Which is annoying sometimes.

I'm getting married soon, so it comes up in conversation. People tend to notice things like being missing for two weeks straight and coming back with a new last name and email address.
