Email required Address never made public. Name required. My attempt at joining the Academy. Always in search of an academic challenge? Consider dating someone pursuing higher education—that is, a graduate student. Study up and you may just find love along the way. Possibly, but they may also like the idea of broadening their horizons. Plus, if things get serious, a two-grad-student relationship can get pretty tense as deadlines loom.
Or their research may require them to travel long-term for access to the sources they need for their studies. That depends. Dating a graduate student means dating a workaholic — Nearly every grad student not only does their own academic research, but they also make ends meet teaching or assisting in undergraduate classes.
More universities are in fact prohibiting any dating between faculty and undergrads. This seems reasonable to me. Where is the difference? Shouldn't age be the criterion, not whether you have a college degree? That is, if there is no supervision or grading involved, for example when the undergrad student is from a different department? I don't think it's considered a problem for a professor in political science to date someone in say, biology. But if it's someone in the same department or a related one, then there's obviously a power dynamic in play.
What happens if they decide to break up? The department is opening itself up to a retaliation lawsuit. Yeah I get that. But a lot of folks seem to reject the idea categorically, irrespective of these considerations. Previous PSR advice: "There are billions of eligible partners in the world, you don't have to abuse your university as a dating pool. Still it seems that people, especially in the U. Not so much in Europe.
No sex for ugly men! I welcome the change actually Chad-lite here, will still get a good share. Well, but spousal hires are usually at the same rank, right? Or at least both are generally tenured-- you don't have one partner with an endowed chair and the other is a junior. And there is a lot more stability in a marriage than in a dating relationship. Seemed like a bummer. No, not at all. Even though you need to make sure you give your date their turn to talk, showing your love for your academic discipline can also be a real conversation generator.
As long as your date continues the back-and-forth, continue to show off your smarts. Broadening your search can help. Just like that! It makes plenty of sense that a grad student has limited free time. There are other people — other graduate students, people who travel a lot for work, and plenty of others- are totally comfortable with short term relationships.
Short term relationships take the pressure off and reduces the chance of hurt feelings.
As a grad student, you're in a different phase of your adult life. You're most likely in charge of all of your finances now, you probably have fewer roommates, and hopefully, you're more inclined to do your laundry yourself rather than taking it all home for your mom. I know, I know. Change is scary but I can confirm that Cheetos will remain one of your main food groups so you can at least take comfort in that.
Apart from these personal life changes, you'll notice a few differences in your love life as well, especially when it comes to casually dating. Here are three ways dating in grad school is so not like dating in college. New classroom, new rules. The ability to swipe through hundreds of people in your college town and the potential to match with literally anyone who catches your eye both sound ideal.
This thought process works out pretty well in college, especially since almost the entire student body is on dating apps, anyway. It's a quick way to meet new people or maybe even find out if that girl from your chemistry lab likes you back you know, assuming you swipe right on her and it's a match. Dating apps are basically perfect for college because of how easy they are to use and how non-committal the whole swiping ritual is.
It's rarely ever awkward bumping into your college classmates on Tinder because it's just what people do in college. This all seems a lot less appealing once you get to grad school. Presumably, your age preferences in grad school widen a bit leaving you open to a couple risks.
The first is that you'll be swiping through professors who might be teaching your classes or whom you might be working closely with on a research project. Either way, it's sure to leave a queasy feeling in your stomach that'll make you question whether or not you really need to be on dating apps at all. The other more horrifying risk, though, is the thought of accidentally matching with one of your students on a dating app.
If, like I did, you work as a teaching assistant throughout your master's program, chances are you'll be teaching your own classes or, at the very least, grading papers for another professor's very large class. Keeping track of all of the students you interact with on a daily basis becomes difficult in a class of students. You won't know them all by name and you might not always immediately recognize them outside of class — like on dating apps.
To avoid this potentially disastrous mishap, I'd recommend narrowing your dating app preferences significantly and avoiding swiping right on anyone who lists your school as the one that they attend. With fewer potential matches to swipe through, you'll be better able to determine which of them might be students of yours and which of them might actually be suitable dates. Everyone knows " study date " is code for, "I like you, let's spend some uninterrupted, quiet time together so we can do literally anything else besides study.
That's just as true in college as it is in high school. Asking your crush to have a study date with you is college-speak for Netflix and chill. Even if you do study for a couple hours, the conversation will eventually become more casual, you'll both be more relaxed, and it won't be long before you're studying each other. This still counts as biology, right?
So, like you say, it can be done. After all, you often end up in very close quarters and extremely busy most of the time. There are bound to be romances. Do be careful though. The quarters ARE small, so things are bound to get ugly if you break up before your comps. I used to think I didn't want to date anyone I worked with. But realistically, grad school is where I spend most of my time and where I meet the most people. Blocking that option for dating has made my life very difficult in the past.
I mean, random dating does work for some people, but it's much easier to find like-minded individuals among your fellow students. Dating a fellow student lead to complications, just like any situation where you date someone who you work with. You have to take into account that things may not work out, and you'll still have to see each other every day until one of you graduates or leaves.
But if you and the person you are dating are reasonable and talk about this eventuality right from the get go, it can work and it can be wonderful. There are a number of couples in my department and there are also some former couples who broke up, but so far in all those cases, it seems to have worked out fine including the ones who broke up.
Our field also has a large proportion of linguists who are married to other linguists, but I wouldn't be at all surprised if that is the case in other fields as well. I have always kept dating very separate. I have never dated anyone I worked with or had classes with. The only thing that came close was dating someone in engineering, but a different year and discipline.
None of my serious relationships have ended amicably, so it's probably for the best that I do it this way. I'm seriously dating within my department. My bf have 2 classes together as well. The relationship is going really well and we're moving together to where I got accepted into a Phd program BUT, although our situation turned out really well, I could see that there could be problems with "in-dating".
Being in the same dept, field and courses could result in a competitive atmosphere that COULD be really good or really bad. You might be competing for the same grants, fellowships etc. And then there's the issue of spending too much time together and not being able to get away.
We've had arguments that have sprung up just because we've gotten frustrated with being around each other too much; but we recognize the problem and then deliberately spend time apart. Also, we do have a lot of mutual friends - but we also have maintained separate social circles as well so that we have people to hang out with WITHOUT each other.
There has to be a certain amount of trust; I have a lot of male friends and some of them are his friends as well, but my bf acknowledges and understands that I need to spend time with these friends without him around just like I did before we started dating. And vice versa. Despite all this, I think that because we are in the same field and deal with the same issues, we can understand and relate to each other's problems.
Before my current bf I dated a man that was not in school and even though he was understanding, he couldn't fully relate to my "work" problems or complaints. I think "in-dating" is just like "out-dating" - endogamy or exogamy - it's still dating and either way comes with issues and benefits.
No different than "workplace romances", and carries the same caveats - most people do it, and if you're going to do it, be smart about it. For people moving to new cities, I'm surprised it isn't just accepted as fact that it will happen - you're most likely to see these people more than anyone else. This is so very true! Undergrad def. It's like the experience is demanding in such a way that you develop a survivor's bond with your peers.
And even if there are mostly women in your program, I bet that widening your circle will lead to Mr. I have noticed that there are a good number of professionals and academics that are married to others in their field. I wonder how many met in grad school.
I am not usually friends with the ex's, either, so this is something to keep in mind. This gives me hope. I'm glad you pointed out the need for some separation, too. I guess a big concern for me, and perhaps others, is that as a grad student, you're at the beginning stages of a career.
You don't have the years of reputation or goodwill to insulate you from any mishaps, in fact you are laying the seeds for it at GS. So a screaming match with the SO in study group I've seen it happen may be detrimental to more than your relationship. In reality, most of us have better control that this, but love makes you do dumb, dumb things. That being said, I'm have no desire to be single until I'm 45 just because I'm dedicated to my work and need to uphold a reputation! Although I haven't seen any really crazy stuff e.
I think I can differentiate someone's social and professional life, even if they mix up sometimes. For example, at conferences or other social activities, I see people sometimes overindulging perhaps. But that doesn't make me think "oh well, so-and-so likes to get drunk, his or her research must not be that great", or "wow this presenter looks like they are having a hangover, no need to listen then! The dangers to yourself I think are more important than your reputation, for dating in the same department, I think e.
I think outside of department is probably the same as dating a non-student, except with the benefit of them understanding grad school life. What about people who date before entering grad school and are in the same field? I don't think anyone will purposely avoid applying to the same programs as their partners! I think it's not off-limits, and it is about the way you go about it. I plan on forming friendships and dating while in graduate school, in part because I haven't had a lot of opportunity to make social connections and date in the past few years due to a lot of hopping around the world.
Now, I'm not going to be actively pursuing my local grad students, and I can see how someone who appears more focused on dating than on school might not come off too well in the eyes of their peers. I'm just saying that if the opportunity to date presents itself, I'm not going to say "nope, I'm focusing solely on school right now".
I think in general that in terms of "rules", the same biases apply as dating in the workplace. Women can sometimes be looked down on for dating within the workplace, more so than men, or are seen as less "serious" for dating because its assumed that they'll marry, have a family, and not continue working at the same pace as the men. This I think would especially be a concern for women in STEM fields or those pursuing tenure track positions.
I don't think that I'd look at someone differently if they were dating vs single. Now, the way that they were acting within their personal relationships might affect my view of them. Someone who dropped the ball on a group project because of relationship drama, for example, or who left a trail of broken hearts in their wake, or didn't really treat the other person well in the relationship, would not come off too well in my personal opinion of them based on how they treat people and responsibilities.
So in that sense it's the way you go about personal relationships, the same as with anyone else you meet through any other circumstances. I would probably avoid dating someone in the same department, mostly because I need space - and what would we have left to talk about? That said, I would probably tend towards someone with very similar interests and goals: someone I can relate to and who knows enough about. But life happens, and I don't think it makes sense to go into grad school with excessively strict rules, but rather to have an open mind and use.
I think it also depends on the size of the department; for example, a larger one would provide a helpful buffer of. I don't think it's wrong to date someone in the same department, assuming your department is reasonably-sized. But dating someone in the same research group would be terribly awkward. It's happened in our department, and the people in question had to continue working together for years after they broke up.
Our department shares a building with another department, which a lot of grad students I know have used as a source of people to date. As for me, I will date outside of school I don't think there's anything wrong with dating someone in your program, if it naturally happens, but I also wouldn't treat grad school as a matchmaking service.
I wouldn't want to miss out on all the things my grad school has to offer by being stuck in the mindset that this is my "last opportunity to meet a large group of intellectual and ambitious people at once. My parents met in graduate school, married right before they received their PhDs, and now teach at the same school happy ending, essentially. Their advice to me was that grad school is a great place to meet people but that it can be seriously difficult to find jobs in the same city if you do end up together after graduation.
Plenty of their friends have had to make major sacrifices like being adjunct profs indefinitely in order to maintain their relationships. This is particularly bad considering the current job market. Just something to consider when thinking about marrying a fellow grad student. There shouldn't be a lot of problems dating within the program, though.
I guess it kind of depends on how large the program is and what the dynamics are like. I'll be starting my program this fall at the same institution my boyfriend is attending though we're in different fields.
I guess it's a little different though since we'll have been dating for over 1. Hyperbole, dear. I don't think failing to date in grad school would preclude me from having a relationship for the next 20 years either!
Like, I was trying to make the point that either extreme may be troublesome. That being said, there are certain fields where you only see people in your program. So I don't know if dating outside your department is a realistic option for everyone. I commend you for this ability, but I think many people judge and judge hard. Reading these made me wonder about how women may view other women who aggressively date in grad school.
If you thought someone was "treat[ing] grad school as a matchmaking service," would you be resentful or maybe just a bit annoyed because they may seem to be perpetuating a stereotype i. I don't see how your life could be so insular that you don't have any relationships outside of your program. I've always tried to keep a somewhat diversified group of friends, albeit only because I play a sport. So I have school friends and rugby friends.
Ok- I think dating other grad students is okay We all know. And you will become the butt of so many inside jokes. I also think that this has the opportunity to look bad on the students from the supervisor's point of view, and other lab mates.
