It has emerged that two thirds of Britons confide in their colleagues rather then their loved ones.
According to a poll,more than a fifth of employees have recently confided in a colleague,while a similar number said they would turn to a workmate first.
It also emerged that workmates know at least five secrets about each other that their partners are unaware of.
In fact,22 percent said they feel closer to their colleagues,while almost a quarter said that they get on better with co-workers on a day-to-day basis than they do with their spouses.
60 percent of the 3,000 Britons polled said as a result of spending so much time at work,it is inevitable that you forge strong relationships with your colleagues.
Half said they are sometimes so tired after a day at work that they rarely get time to talk to their love ones and one third of people said they turn to colleagues if they are having problems in their relationship.
And one in 20 said they confide in work mates very frequently about personal matters and 30 percent said they regard the majority of their colleagues as true friends.The poll was conducted by ink-cartridge firm stinkyink.com
