It’s just fact: when something is forbidden you want it more. Office romances clearly fall in this category. Seeing someone -you may or may not be actually attracted to in the real world- day in and day out, hovering over the Xerox machine, eating their tuna sandwiches at their desks, and making instant coffee undoubtedly can build sexual tension.
