Grad school and dating
my list of the top (or bottom, depending on how you look at it) five worst pieces of advice you hear in grad school. Really, the list could be endless—there’s an unfortunate number of people who are spouting terrible things on this subject, all the time.Some of the lousy advice I heard myself, and some I heard from colleagues’ horror stories. But even though that’s true, the working conditions in academia can exacerbate all kinds of mental illness.You are basically saying "I have just one thing to offer (being smart at a good university) and I don't want to use it". But in most cases, you have to apply for that job, many of then in fact, and get through a lot of interviews..I can't tell you how to date girls specifically in grad school because I'm not in grad school, but there is one thing that applies to dating as well as to a lot of other things in life.. If you don't show interest they won't know you are interested, they might even think you are actually NOT interested.
On the other hand, it’s perfectly normal for people to meet in grad school and start dating—you may have similar interests, and dating a fellow doctoral student is an infinitely better option than dating a professor. Don’t take classes with Professor So-and-So because he/she is the mortal enemy of your adviser.
Within academe, there’s a huge stigma around mental health issues such as depression, schizophrenia, or bipolar disorder.
