College student dating a teacher
College dating is the set of behaviors and phenomena centered on the seeking out and the maintenance of romantic relationships in a university setting.It has unique properties that only occur, or occur most frequently, in a campus setting.Students are constantly sending messages in the direction of the teacher, from their unconscious behaviour, in their way of taking up work of the class, and in their explicit coomunications.Experts say that teachers should not respond to all these signals.This is one kind of relationship that our society frowns upon much the same way it condemns child abuse or paedophilia.A teacher-student relationship is by tradition, considered sacred.
Some also argue that teacher-student romances are unethical because it involves bringing something alien namely love and passion, to the scene of education, thus distracting from and posing as an impediment to educational goals.
They may attribute the wrong motives and may see an undesirable nexus between awarding grades and sexual favors. Allowing mentorship to turn into romance breaks the trust on which a healthy student-teacher relationship is founded.
