Do you have a secret crush on your co-worker? According to a recent survey by SnagAJob, the majority of office workers have some kind of crush (想い、特に片想い) on a co-worker (職場の同僚). About (= nearly) two out of three people admitted having a crush on a co-worker: 72% of men like a female co-worker and 60% of women like a male co-worker.
However, office crushes are most often unnoticed because nearly two-thirds of employees plan to keep their crushes to themselves (胸のなかだけに秘めておく). According to the survey, men are more likely to keep their lips sealed (口を閉じる) than women. It is the remaining (残りの) one-third of employees who, if they succeed, develop (発展させる) their crushes to office love.
