Grad student dating professor
In college people were naive, many still focused on the short-term, and most people just looking to have fun and/or feel safe.
Dating after college seems to open up all sorts of new difficulties.
"I want people to think about what is our personal sphere of autonomy," said Abramson, whose book, "Romance in the Ivory Tower," will be published this month. "My answer is that for consenting adults, this is clearly within the sphere of our personal autonomy," he said.
"Whom you love is a deeply intimate choice that you should be free to make yourself without restrictions placed by your employer, as long as the relationship is consensual.
Everything’s easier if it’s just done for the lolz.
Many universities have policies prohibiting romantic relationships between professors and students. Abramson, a UCLA psychology professor who specializes in human sexuality and teaches about sex and the law, examines and challenges these policies. Is it comparable to our freedom of speech and freedom of religion, or is it something we give to institutions?
I’ve just occasionally been frustrated trying to explain to various people that dating in grad school is much different from dating in college.
So, partially as an exercise to myself, I just wanted to think through what those difficulties were.
