Everyone is always crowing on about how love and work do not–and should not–mix. And that can definitely be the case in certain bad situations, especially if the coworker you fall for is a complete douche or your boss. But what if it’s Mr. Gorgeous himself, Ian Somerhalder?
This weekend Ian and his on (and off!) screen girlfriend Nina Dobrev seemed to be more in love than ever as they strolled around the Coachella Music Festival in their best hipster outfits.
But really, haven’t The Vampire Diaries costars always been one of the cutest celeb couples? I love how these two can spend hours on set with one another and still be so totally smitten kittens when the cameras stop rolling. No drama, no scandalous sex tapes or embarrassing public brawls–just a seriously adorable pair.
But how do they make it work?
One of the biggest problems with dating a coworker is potentially competing with your man–if you guys have similar positions that could create tension. But Ian seems to always be so supportive of Nina and vice vera.
Plus, they also avoid another workplace romance pitfall: constant togetherness. These two clearly have separate lives and interests of their own, which is an absolute MUST in any relationship!
Do you end up crushing on your coworkers? Do you think Ian and Nina are the exception to the rule or is on-the-job love underrated? Tell me everything in the comments!
