Ethics of dating a former student
Keep in mind the reasons you are attending college. Who are you to tell people what two CONSENTING adults can and cannot do? I pity you for being so narrow minded and ignorant.
There is no need to categorically rule out a relationship with your professor.
Most rules do not specify whether it is acceptable to date after the student is no longer a student in the professors class.
Generally, most students have no interest in dating one of their professors.
University fraternization rules are sometimes vague. It is a commonly held belief that everyone is considered an adult at the college level and should know where to draw the line.
At many schools, there are no formal rules about professors dating students. For most educators, there is an unwritten rule that getting involved with students is a bad idea.
