Do interns count?

Ever since my first failed realtionship, if you can call it that, I've had a personal rule against dating coworkers (see future post entitled, "As the Burger Flips"). However, this rule is under reconsideration for two reasons:

1) There are over 4,000 people where I work. I only work closely with two women, and one of them's married. So what about the other 1,200 women under 35 at this place? It's not like a relationship could interfere with work, since we'd only be working at the same complex, not in the same department, or even the same building.

2) We have summer interns, which are the only girls that are guaranteed to be my age (I have nothing against older women, but it gets confusing when I ask out a woman who looks younger than me, but is actually 10 years older). And technically, since they're not getting paid, they're not actually coworkers. Plus it's the perfect setup. Have a summer fling with an intern, then send her back to school in the fall, both of us (hopefully) having enjoyed it.

The coward in me also takes one thing into consideration in both scenarios. Even though I wouldn't be working with them, the fact that we both have name badges for the place means that if she gets a Camille Paglia hair up her ass, I could get in trouble for sexual harrassment if I ask out someone who doesn't want to be asked.

You need to narrow the guidelines. For example: every woman who is not working directly with you on a specific problem at a specific moment in time is not considered a co-worker... especially if she's hot... and drunk!

Ah, Its you again, Your Angel Feathers and your Blood Stains...
