Dating Advice Tips: Should you date your college professor?

Editor’s Note: thanks to our contributing author Tammi Jenkins for this excellent dating advice tips article.

If you’re going to date your college professor, you are going to need some clandestine, top-secret, surreptitious, hush-hush, underground, covert and cloak-and-dagger techniques to pull this taboo relationship off.

Most college handbooks for employed faculty clearly state that dating students is not allowed, and is grounds for immediate discharge. However, some colleges do allow dating between professors and students as long as the student is not in the instructor’s class.

Under these guidelines, you’d have to wait till the semester ends before you begin this enamored relationship. Both you and your professor will need to read the college rules and tread carefully.

Dating Advice Tips #1: Keep it quiet.

Since we live in an instant-gratification society, many college students and professors do not follow the rules and engage in this forbidden relationship anyway. Should you decide to date your professor while he or she is your instructor with academic authority, it’s got to be hush-hush.

That means you cannot confide about the relationship with anybody, including your best friends. Whether intentionally or by slip-of-the-tongue, best friends do not always keep secrets.

In addition, the people who are your best friends today may not be your best friends tomorrow. Once your best friend relationship ends, you can be sure the person will blab; it’s human nature.

Dating Advice Tips #2: Keep it under wraps.

You’ve also got to choose hidden places where you and your professor will not be seen. Forget about taking in a movie at a local cinema or sharing a romantic dinner at your favorite restaurant.

This is a tricky maneuver because even if you travel a couple of towns away, you’ll still probably be spotted together in time. That’s where the saying “It’s a small world” comes from.

So, you can hold on to your rabbit’s foot and hope luck is with you, or you can always travel together incognito. That means wearing wigs and dressed-up clothing so passing spies won’t recognize you. If you’re both willing to do that, both of you may stand a chance.

You both must also be very smitten and love struck to go to this extreme, but it’s worth a shot. All joking aside, there’s no sure-fire or easy way to pull this off without the risk of being found out.

Dating Advice Tips #3: Wait.

Probably the best way to date your professor is to wait for the semester to end, if the college permits this. If you don’t, you need to ingrain the nasty words “sexual harassment” in your mind.

Your professor or you can be accused of sexual harassment. Your professor can be accused of engaging in a sexual relationship with you in order for you go get a good grade.

Conversely, you can be accused of engaging in sexual relations in order to get a good grade. Either way, it’s a no-win situation. People are people and perception is their reality.

You will be at the mercy of their perception of your relationship. In addition, if you’re both found out and your professor loses an employed position, the pizazz of the relationship will fizzle and probably end. Dating your college professor certainly comes with a lot of risks.

    I have a first hand experience of Dating Advice Tips No 2: ‘Keep it under wraps’ Years ago I was in the final year of graduate study in my college. It was the end of the semester about just about two months away before we had our exams. A new lady came in as our chemistry practicals instructor to replace our regular instructor for a few weeks as she was seriously ill. It was attraction at first sight for this woman and me. She was over 4 years older than me but we couldn’t care about anything. We decided to go out one night to a restaurant over thirty miles away from Mumbai. I took my dad’s car that night. We started having fun at the table when just at that moment one of my classmates walked in with his regular girlfriend! That was the beginning and end of our relationship. Within days, the whole class knew about it. It got to a point when my date had to leave this temporary assignment. I cannot agree with the author of this article ‘Tammi Jenkins’ more … “It really is a small world.” Today my date is happily married with grown up kids. But we still remember the good old times when we meet sometimes. And I am still a bachelor.

    It’s true you have to sneak around. I dated one of my professors for a couple months. Seems like we never had any privacy. He was more worried than I was. We spent a lot of time in.
