Just wondering because I was using the pof mobile app while on break and two attending physicians saw me and said online dating was inappropriate and unprofessional , and could lead to awkward situations or open you up to trouble.Dismissed it until I realized I never encountered a lawyer/cop/doctor on this site.The dating app Hinge, which launched a new app last fall to help people find relationships, has a ton of data about its most eligible bachelors and bachelorettes living in New York City.But the company most recently provided us with more data about a specific, highly sought-after subset of the NYC population: doctors and medical professionals.There are doctors, lawyers and policemen on this site and i have been exchanging e-mails with few. Although I think this site is starting to get some kind of bad reputation as a hook up site from what I have been hearing so far.
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.You could also be in violation if you go out on a date and discuss privileged and private information with someone. Couple that with not violating any HIPAA r/r as well as keep a professional appearance.However, what you do outside of your job is your business and no one has a right to tell you what is inappropriate and unprofessional. I have met police officers, doctors, and lawyers on different sites.If being on a dating site is "unprofessional" then wouldn't going to singles bar or any other place to meet a date be the same?Really it is just a different venue for accomplishing what men and women have been doing since the beginning?
