Rihanna found love in a hopeless place, and maybe you can, too.
Well, maybe not true-blue love, but perhaps a fling. Western New Yorkers’ chances of being intertwined in an office hook-up are higher than in most other U.S. cities.
According to Payscale.com’s office romance report, Buffalo is among the top cities where employed people report inter-office romantic romps. Here’s the top-10 list:
1. Indianapolis, Ind.
2. Memphis, Tenn.
3. Grand Rapids, Wyo.
4. Bradenton, Fla.
5. Tulsa, Okla.
6. Minneapolis, Minn.
7. Buffalo, NY
8. Birmingham, Ala.
9. Springfield, Mass.
10. Nashville, Tenn.
Apparently, certain occupations lend themselves to such office antics. Artists, cooks, welders, stock clerks, occupational health and safety specialists, industrial machinery workers, automotive technicians, food service managers, database administrators, and planing and expediting clerks are more likely engaging in casual romantic encounters with colleagues.
Looking for more than a little workplace hanky panky? Head east to Central New York. According to survey results, Syracuse is one of the top cities for finding love at work.
