Is it ok to ask a teacher in my school on a date?

Before you start to say student and teacher or something like that i'm a teacher and i teach chemistry in high school. And there's this man in my school and i really like him and i started to fall for him so i want to ask him out on a date but would it be ok to do it or he will think i'm weird and I should just move on and date someone outside my school?

  • I think your dating life and your career should be kept separate if possible. You don't want a rejection to affect your friendship or feel awkward and if it does turn out okay and you date, would the school be comfortable with that? Only you can decide what solution best fits your situation, if you think he'd be up for it and that you could still act professional and appropriate in school then I would try but I do imagine that eventually something in the work place would affect the relationship.

  • You perhaps might have wanted to add "fellow" in front of teacher to avoid confusion.

    Firstly, do you like teaching chemistry?

    Secondly, I generally find it unwise to date people you work with. People who know me might say, "But Bluemax, you MARRIED a coworker!!!" To them I would say I only asked her out AFTER I started working at a different school.

    We teachers need love, too! I would say it might be better to find love with someone you don't work with.

  • It's up to you but make sure you think about all the possibilities before you decide. It could go either way but regardless of what his answer is, make sure you don't let it affect your career. If he rejects you, it could make things awkward. If he says yes, you'll still have to keep things professional in school and not let your relationship affect that.

  • Well I did assume student you should put that in the title.

    But it would still be a bad idea if your job is anything serious.

    • Bad idea in which way?

    • Show All
    • I think he is a little bit interested too

    • That's not the point, even if initially everything great, your dating, la di da di da then you brake up later on. Now it's a bit more of a problem. Plus you're bringing all your drama to work.

  • If it weren't for the politics of it I wouldn't really care any other way. But because of social flak you get both from a teacher's employers and society itself it's not a wise idea.

    It's dumb, but can't do anything to help it. =/

  • It depends on how capable you both are. If any worst care scenarios come to pass can you both continue working as you do without issue?

  • It would be wise to get the idea out of your head. You should learn about the political and social machinations of the workplace. That's what you should be concerning yourself with (and of course your actual job).

    And once you do that... you'll never consider dating at work again.

  • Sure, why not?

    Unsurprisingly, it’s best to actually talk to a guy before you try to take him out. For one, you want to see if he’s even worth getting to know. Is he your type?

    Can he hold up a conversation? For another, it’s one of the best ways to gauge whether he might be into you too, saving you from what could be a serious awkward-turtle moment.

    Good luck.

  • What if he says no

    • I feel that he's a little interested too

    • Well it's just a date if you get one with him. Not that you are going to marry him in future.

  • I don't see why you can't. Surely it's like any other workplace? Personally I don't like to date within the workplace, but I met my boyfriend through work so you know.

    Go for it. It might be the best thing you ever did

  • my personal opinion is it's okay, but if you're the teacher, are you going to date a minor? and also I heard that there's a rule that personal relationship such as dating between Teacher and student is forbidden?
