Dismissed it until I realized I never encountered a lawyer/cop/doctor on this site.
If you behave like a normal person is it really that bad?
Really it is just a different venue for accomplishing what men and women have been doing since the beginning?
I have met two doctors (MD's), and dated one of them for several months.
Yes there is the full spectrum of people online these days, and depending on what your specialty is going to be, you may put too much personal info online where future patients may see some of it.. I worked many years as a corrections officer in the psych / medical unit of the state prison.
I have dated one police officer and two attorneys who I met on this site. They certainly didn't seem to associate a stigma with the site. As long as nothing of a sensitive or confidential nature is discussed with your dates I don't see where it would cause any negative issues.cop/lawyer/doctor/firefighter...civil service position are people too.
It is only a problem (assuming that you are in the medical profession) if you are talking about sensitive subject matter on a forum thread, that would and could be seen as a violation of HIPPA.
(Well, except the one lawyer I briefly dated, he was a nut-case.Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc.Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing...Having law enforcement background, I know a number of friends and aquaintances who use these sites. They are allowed to have fun as well, just as long as they conduct themselves in a mature way.Many of my facebook friends are affiliated with the PD, and the higher up's do check out their profiles/pictures and have been told not to post pic's of yourself in uniform, as the city patch is there, and you dont want to draw negative attention to your personal life (ie...a criminal who could see personal info/family)I certainly hope they'd say the same thing if you were on "Facebook."The public nature of online "profiles" does open one up.
MAJOR RULE: NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, DATE A PATIENT!!!!
