When you meet someone and fall in love, you just want to be around them every single day. But what happens when you work together?

In the case of Total Divas' Nattie and TJ, they've been a couple for over a decade and both got their start in wrestling together. Sounds perfect, right? Wrong!

Recently the couple has been dealing with a lot of issues that has made it hard for them to live in the same house together, let alone work together. After consulting a divorce attorney, it seems that things are not so perfect in WWE heaven...

TD Recap, EP 309

Working with the one you love might not be as ideal as we'd like to think it is. And it isn't always going to be like a Pam and Jim situation from The Office, ending with your colleagues doing a JK Wedding Dance down the aisle in your honor!

Here are 7 reasons why you should never date someone you work with...

7. You risk losing your job.

Not all work environments are romance-friendly, and if your boss suspects that your dating life is interfering with your professional life, you could potentially be risking your career.

Is it worth it?

6. It affects your work ethic.

Let's face it: you're going to be distracted either way if the person you're dating is working just a few feet away from you.

Sure, you can try and pretend that you're working, but inevitably you'll be exchanging longing glances, secret text messages, IMs, the list goes on.

5. It's going to be awkward when you break up.

Heaven forbid that things don't work out and you break up, but whatever happens, you're going to have to deal with the consequences.

It's not like dating some random that you can easily block on Facebook and never talk to again. In this case, you're going to have to see their lovely face every single morning...

4. You see them every single day.

Sure, it's fun when you first get to the office and see the object of your affection peering over at you in the next cubicle, but after a while it will start to get old.

When you see them later, you'll run out of things to talk about, and the relationship will lose all of its mystery and excitement. And forget about asking them, "So how was your day?"

3. You have to act differently around each other at work.

Despite the fact that you just want to give them a big kiss, you have to maintain a sense of professionalism at all times. You may have to act the total opposite, in fact.

It's a lot harder than it sounds and will make working together even more awkward!

2. You have to work extra hard to keep it a secret.

If other people find out that you're dating, it may alter their perception of you, so you have to work extra hard to keep things a secret.

Not to mention that you'll constantly be questioning yourself whether you're doing a good job at it or not, and you'll start to become super critical and overly aware of every interaction you two have, which could make things harder on the relationship in general...

1. No more flirting with others at work.

Sometimes innocent flirting at work can be fun. You know, that daily conversation you have with the office receptionist that's laced with sexual innuendo but you have no intention of ever acting on?

If you work with your girlfriend/boyfriend, that simply ain't gonna fly. And forget about having a "workplace husband/wife" anymore! If you can't show affection for your significant other while at work, you certainly can't show affection for another co-worker, even if in jest...
