Random survey o' the day

From across the Pond, rather than across the Ditch.  For once.

C/O the Ethics Resource Center (sic):

"While only 14.9 percent of Americans say it is okay to date one's boss, 83.6 percent found it unacceptable, according to the ERC survey. However, among all male respondents, 20 percent said it is acceptable and only 11 percent of females agreed".

Which would rather put the kibosh on the entire rom-com, not to say Mills & Boon Doctor & Nurse romance genre. 

I suppose there could be the element of of messiness when it all goes wrong in the case of boss/peon afairs, but what about this for trans-Atlantic prissiness:

"U.S. employees are more likely to say it is okay to date a peer, but overall the workforce was split on the issue. When it comes to co-workers, 47.5 percent say it is all right to have a romantic office relationship while 50.6 percent were against it. Among respondents who thought it is acceptable to date a co-worker, men and women were split almost evenly, 49 percent to 45 percent, respectively".

I think the majority of my paired off friends met their significant others at work, so if they had been American about it, well, words fail me.
