You guys are all crazy, it's probably one of the best places to meet your significant other. Studies have shown that the most successful marriages are with people who met at work. This is mainly because when you work with someone for a couple years you know their true personality. Many people who are on a date aren't being true to themselves and are just trying to impress their date, even if subconsciously.
I met mine at my job and everything has worked out perfect. You should never give up the chance to be happy with someone just because you're afraid of awkward situations at work. Awkward situations get easier. Being single forever never gets easier.
