Do NOT mix work with pleasure, ever. Be discrete and smart for your own sake, as well as to keep the work environment professional and comfortable. In other words like anything USE YOUR HEAD.

But...and this is a big but..can you keep it together when it hits the crapper?
can you see this person and say hi and be polite and friendly after you break up?
Can you resist the urge to call him on shift and continue the fight you were having?
What happens when you want to share a wonderful thing or a terrible thing with a friend at work?
You have to look at the whole thing like an adult and then you have to check yourself out...do you have history of dramatics?
If you are a grown up and can maintain discretion then go for it...and I have no problem with two people who are dating and care for each other having an affectionate moment...in fact I find it cheers me right up when I see someone getting a discreet cuddle and a kind word.
I am not a touchy feely in fact it is sort of a running joke about my "personal space issues" but for those I really like I will hug and touch and I am happily married. That is another running joke as those who I do hug are considered differently..."special" since it happens so rarely and it's funny because they cant hug me..I can only hug them...I have control issues.
Go ahead and enjoy...I like to see love anywhere...
i don't want to see tongues though so watch it.

Its a place of business not a dating house. That said, if people conduct themselves as adults, its no one's business - keep it away from work. Life is short - be happy.
I love the post that mentioned that they wouldn't WANT to date any ofthe DRs they knew!!! I have to admit, the thought of dating any of our Docs is a bit "ICKY" too!:chuckle
