I have a question that does not appear to be covered by your existing advice about asking guys out.I am currently a student (grad, not college, if that makes any difference) and I have a crush on my TA.Then it’s just like asking anyone else out – use your words, don’t build it up too much, be cool with rejection, etc.You can even use the delay when you do ask him out.In fact, the more problematic ones are the ones that seem consensual.Everyone brings up the case of the long-term, happy relationship, but that's a rarity.Some say that the unequal power in a relationship between a student and a faculty member -- particularly one who is in a position to grade or make recommendations about the student he or she is dating -- is inherently exploitative.Others cite happy marriages of professors to their former students.A Gray Area Representatives from the State University of New York at Purchase, Marymount College, Sarah Lawrence College, Pace University, Westchester Community College, Iona College and Mercy College also said that such relationships were discouraged by the administration though not specifically addressed in college policies.But administrators, professors and students alike say that the issue of faculty-student dating is a complex one.
