Would a male graduate student date an undergrad? I'm afraid an older guy would think an undergrad girl was too immature.
Most Helpful Guy
Well, I'm a male grad student.
I would date an undergrad. In fact, I have to look at the undergrad population, because there aren't that many grad students comparatively and most are either married or in long-term relationships. Seriously, like in my research group alone, I'm the only single guy.
Maturity isn't just a factor of age. I've seen girls who are older than me who I don't think are that mature.
The only real big "conflict of interest" issue is if the guy is your TA and grades your work. I don't think it's a really big issue though if you're not trying to just use him to get a better grade, because often times people fall in situations where they're grading the class that a friend is taking, and the possibility of favoritism is no less of a risk there.
To be on the safe side, the guy can always ask someone else to grade your work too. There is usually more than one grader for a course, and even if there isn't, it's usually not hard to find somebody. That pretty much clears up any ethical questions.0
