Update: the object of my affection gave off too many red flags to even consider pursuing... the main one being ditzy, unreliable, forgetful, and flaky. This woman could not remember when Easter was, two days after Easter Sunday (andwe had talked about our individual plans the Friday before Easter)!!! Put several other recent examples like this together and I start thinking, "Do I want to date someone this wigged out mentally?". Disappointingly, the answer was no. She is also a divorced single mother, which oftentimes can be a recipe for disaster in the long run (especially when the child is only 10 years old).
One good thing about potential dating of coworkers is that you can screen out the red flags before even going on one date!
