HI, I am a parent of a college sophomore. She is not the smartest kid in the world. I know that. I have read this theead and have emphasized. Do you own work. Get stuff in on time. etc etc.
I have also talked to my friends, in the affluent town we live in, to demand fair treatment of adjuncts etc.
Now here is my question. I am really hot for one of her instructors. Divorced adjunct. I am a couple of years younger than he is (but I realize he spends all day with snowflakes. sigh.), but I am relatively well of (by affluent standards, which means great house paid for, many investments and Wall Street Job).
Any ideas as to how I can aproach him, on no committment basis. Many thanks.
Are you angling to get eHarmony to buy this site? Genius!
Ben, if I can bring people together...then I know my time on the planet has been worthwhile!ReplyDelete
You're asking romance advice from *this* bunch!?!ReplyDelete
I forsee him turning her down on the basis of grammar alone.ReplyDelete
Ooops, foresee. People in glass houses, I guess, and all that.ReplyDelete
I think we need more details. Which college? Which discipline? Would the rich lady care to leave her contact info and perhaps a photo? Is she sure about this "no commitment" clause?ReplyDelete
Given an adjunct's employment status, a personal relationship with no commitment shouldn't be an issue.ReplyDelete
Get a large box. Prop it up with a stick. Get a bottle of beer. Tie it to the stick. When the adjunct goes for the beer, the stick will fall and the box will come down on him and he's yours!ReplyDelete
I saw it on a cartoon once.
Well, I see no helpful comments. Merely, he teachers History at a large flagships state U. My daughter took his class over the summer and recieved an A (which I guess from reading this means she attended and handed in her own work?).ReplyDelete
My name is not Pam. Actually that is one of my best friends -- who is a bona fide cougar. And red dresses and short hair are so last year. or last century. Not to mention, anyone on Wall Street either has 3 screens on their desk or a laptop (or both).
I'm just curious as to how a parent would meet their kid's college instructor as I earned two degrees, working on a third, and at no time have my parents or any other family member met any of my professors. My family's local, so it's not a matter of distance. I just can't imagine a situation where my professors would want or need to meet my parents or vice-versa. As far as how to approach, the time-honored technique of asking him out for a drink might work.ReplyDelete
He needed a ride on a day when I was picking up daughter, and she offered him a ride.
My parents met my PhD adviser at an awkward dinner at an Indian restaurant after my PhD defense. I didn't mind since the food and beer were on my father. The first rule of grad school is never turn down free beer.ReplyDelete
