Many years ago I was interested in a former coworker of mine, and I was pretty sure she was into me as well. I never made a move on the grounds that we were working together. Some time later, she got involved with another colleague, and that led to some drama, so I was really glad I didn't get mixed up in that.
I think that relationships in the workplace can work, but I must be a 100% certain me and my prospective partner can completely separate work and private affairs before I start one.
