Ethics dating former student

Such is the case here, and thus I somewhat question the motives of the author of the post, Kelly Anders. Asking the question creates the illusion that there is a real controversy. I addressed this question a long time ago, in an early post here barely seen at the time but among the most frequently visited since.I wrote: [P]rofessors [are] obligated to maintain a position of authority, objectivity and judgment as mentors and teachers of the whole student body, and [have] a duty to their schools not to allow their trustworthiness to be undermined by having intimate relationships among the same group that they [are] supposed to be supervising and advising.

I don’t mind as much that he might turn me down since I’m no longer his student. Unfortunately, as in the case of “Dating Glory,” the readership of most blogs prove to be as unequipped to deal with these questions as the blogger, resulting in a consensus answer based on rationalizations, ethical fallacies and misconceptions.

The original post, for example, states that “Lawyers date their clients all the time.” In fact, they don’t, and when they do, they are probably violating their ethics rules, which prohibit lawyers from dealings with clients that interfere with independent judgment and create conflicts of interest. On “Dating Glory,’ one commenter offered genuine insight.

Dating a student who happens not to be in one of those classes is what lawyers call “a distinction without a difference.” Many students and professors will reasonably assume that the pairing arose out of the student-teacher relationship, and in some ways it almost certainly did.

Profs Blog asks the question regarding law professors and law students, but the question doesn’t change by narrowing the definition.

One of the students, Pat, is very attractive to Chris. Can Chris wait until after the semester and then ask Pat out?

If Pat initiates and expresses social or romantic interest in Chris during the semester can Chris reciprocate the expression of interest?The question is really, and only, “Is it ethical for teachers to have romantic relationships with students?” The answer is, has been, and forever shall be, “No.” The answer to an ethics question sometimes becomes obvious when it is apparent that every argument on one side is either a logical fallacy, an unethical rationalization, or the application of an invalid ethics principle.I (25/M) feel annoyed because my girlfriend [28/F] of three years got a haircut and now acts like she's better than me, also, she's very condescending, flirts with other guys in front of me and tries to constantly embarrass me in public.My [27M] girlfriend [29F] (1y2m) has been pressuring me to let her move in with me for the last little while.My fear and only concern is that she only wants to move in with me for "her own convenience" - advice?
