I am a director at a public relations company, and I have just finished an extensive job search. I met a couple of great, highly qualified women, but to be honest, in the back of my mind I was always looking to hire a man - preferably on the very attractive side.
The truth is that I am single, and I spend quite a lot of my time at work. My office is primarily comprised of women, and I haven't really had the time to date in almost a year. Clearly, I am not hiring him strictly based on his looks since I still need someone competent, but I would be lying if I didn't think that there was a possibility of forging something more than just a work relationship.
I am not going to abuse my power to force something romantic but isn't it true that 25% of people meet at work? I know that it is common for a man to hire attractive women in the business world so does this make it wrong for me to do the same thing?
