If I've changed it too much from your original question, feel free to edit it further or roll back the changes. Dating subordinates is almost always a bad idea, except when it's a great idea.

Ok let's be blunt and share some of the negative consequences I have personally experienced or observed from bosses dating their subordinates: It is risky, it is far less likely to work than not to work.The key to using safety quotes effectively is to find ones that help you get your point across in a way that will be particularly meaningful to your employees, as well as easy to remember.Office workers sometimes think that safety isn't something that they need to worry about since they aren't working in an environment traditionally considered dangerous.People inherently understand and are attracted to others who “understand” that part of their life.”Another draw of getting involved with a co-worker is the excitement coupled with the “safety” of dating somebody you’ve already gotten to know.Gregg Ward, Workplace Consultant puts it this way: “There are a lot of “creeps” (both men and women) out there in the world; dating and falling for someone you work with is a lot easier/safer than trying to meet someone in clubs, bars, etc.The charity said there had been a 25% increase in people seeking workplace advice on pregnancy and maternity issues in the past year, with more than 22,000 visits to its website.
