Can graduate students dating professors Dirty chat free site no sign up sex
If tinder or grindr had existed, I would not have been on them. There's 0 ethical risk if you're doing that.I had a similar concern when I first moved to my university town.I would think they'd recognize you and either 1) say something or 2) not "match" with you.I'd also consider taking a look at my current rosters to make sure they don't show up.And of course, most campuses are big enough that you simply won't recognize students immediately, even if they're being 100% honest in their profiles. I feared going into class and hearing that someone saw my dating profile.Depending on the site (say, a fetish site, or a casual sex site), simply being contacted by or contacting a student could be pretty awkward / inappropriate, even if nothing comes of it. I don't think there's any way around it, other than being careful.
Yes, it was slightly embarrassing and I never saw some "matches" closed so fast :-). I met a few profs this way who refused to put their profile pics for this very reason.
A lot of online dating (including older sites like Match and newer stuff like Tindr) searches by location, which means if you live near where you teach, students show up in your possibles and you show up in theirs. With any site and profession you run the risk of this.
This is especially problematic for younger profs whose non-skeezy age band may well overlap with common student ages. I was always less worried about contacting or meeting up with someone who I didn't realize was a student, and more about how it would impact my rapport with students.
Maybe an issue would have occurred if the student ever contested any of my grading, but he never did.
When I say it wasn't a problem for me, I'm not saying that it didn't bother me. But that is just what my experience was and I wanted to share that to answer the OP.
