“Where do you meet people? Where are people meeting each other? Pubs? The gym? The supermarket?
I’ll tell you where.
If you haven’t met someone by the time you graduate, you’re going to marry some idiot from your work. It’s that simple. Do you know how they get animals to breed in captivity? They put them in the same cage.”
Office romances are tricky. One moment you’re colleagues, then a quick grope after Friday night drinks and suddenly you’re in a relationship. Tom and Amy work in the same building, but that’s about all they have in common. When they get together after an office social, they find themselves living in each other’s pockets. But it’s not their lack of chemistry that’s the problem: it’s that neither of them can quite get over their childhood sweethearts.
