Intern season has started, and already a debate as to the merits of paid vs. unpaid interns is under way. Today’s question is a bit more straightforward though:

A. Hill Navigator doesn’t judge your dating life and I’ll make the assumption that everyone is a consenting adult of legal age. Assuming that, whatever you do on your private time should be confined to your private life.
The golden rule of dating on Capitol Hill is simple, no matter whether you’re dating an intern or a senator: Keep the details to yourself — your back office doesn’t need to know.
Hill Navigator answers your questions about how to succeed on Capitol Hill — professionally and personally.
