The results of Vault's 2017 Office Romance Survey are here! This year, with 57% of  respondents reporting that they’ve had some kind of personal relationship with a colleague—from a quick fling to an ongoing long-term relationship—we looked at how those relationships get started, and whether technology has blurred the lines between the personal and the professional.

For example, according to this year’s data, 34% of business professionals believe that social media platforms and productivity tools such as Facebook and Slack have made it easier for colleagues to pursue romantic interest in one another. And 46% believe that those same tools have made it easier to hide such relationships.

However, just 22% percent of survey respondents confess to having used those same tools to send romantic or flirtatious messages to colleagues, suggesting that there is a degree of caution about leaving a digital trail for employers to find.
