Professor dating a former student
OK, Just thought I would get some input from some folks around here. Just because it seems unfair to you not to do it doesn't mean its ethical to do it.A faculty member who himself was emotionally immature might be vulnerable to a student's attention and quick to misinterpret the adulation as genuine love, Dr. But he said that is was a situation that was fraught with peril because it also depended on the emotional stability of the professor. When I signed up to be a college professor, I never agreed to limit my long-term life options in such a way.Even after she graduates, there is some stigma to dating a former student. I would say once she turns 21, that would be even better for you. It's not the age difference- I'm 19 and dated a 28 year and it was one of the best relationships I have had- but it can only be bad for your job.On other message boards, most guys feel that women under 24 years old just come with a lot of drama, and under 21 is even worse. If you waited until she was completely out of the college you teach at, it would be one thing. Plus, you don't know if she is using you to further her educational needs.After you create your account, you'll be able to customize options and access all our 15,000 new posts/day with fewer ads.OK, Just thought I would get some input from some folks around here.

If you're a college professor or adjunct, you've obviously worked hard and invested a great deal of time, effort and money into your education.
I fail to see how 4 is relevant to the ethics of the titular question.
