Getting a workplace crush is fairly natural, but in corporate jobs with high career stakes it's looked down upon for obvious reasons. When you get involved with a coworker, it's likely the situation will get messy, so it's usually safest to let workplace crushes run their course quietly, without making a scene of things.
