A number of companies frown against employees being involved in a relationship, as they have concerned about possible sexual harassment claims, civil suits and possible workplace disharmony.
However, while some are not flexible and actually have stringent measures they take on defaulters, others have no strict rules against it.
Despite how attractive you find the colleague, you do not want to risk your job and/or any disciplinary action.
In the case where you and the person you are dating are in a supervisor-subordinate relationship, and your new lover is in charge of your appraisal, payment or performance review, the HR can help with reshuffling of duties or moving one of you to a different team depending on the company policy, in order avoid friction and resentment among other colleagues.
Also, in the case where gossip in the office about your relationship is becoming difficult to manage, the HR will be the best person to help you control the situation.
Be discreet Yes, you are in love and you want the whole world to see how cute you are…no problem, just save that for the world outside your office.
