While there will never be a precise answer to that question, Time's Work in Progress blog points to a recent study by staffing company Randstad USA for some answers, at least as far as flirting and dating. Some of the more intriguing statistics:
• 37% of working adults have flirted with a colleague
• 8% currently have a secret crush at work
• 17% of working adults have secretly dated someone from work
And what form does eventual socializing take?: "Those in the South (41%) and Midwest (35%) like socializing with co-workers at company parties and Northeasterners favor dinner (37%) or happy hour (28%)."
