So totally random lol but my bf and me are working together too and it‘s all fine. It doesn’t always have to turn bad.... Sorry for that totally off topic post.
While I applaud that you and your "Freund" get along quite nicely, it's just not a good idea in general. While there are exceptions like in your case, it's more likely than not that mixing work with romance will cause a shit-ton of problems.
In general, I guess you’re right and I‘d definitely be on your side!
Luckily, circumstances truly make it an exception for me though.
