He walks around and helps us take vitals and learn other procedures. he is really sweet and always smiling. i would love to get to know him better, and i try to flirt with him, but how can i when i don't look or feel attractive in scrubs?! any advice?

Check your school policy on fraternization with staff this could become an ethical/ professional dilemma and risk your student status and the GA's position should you elect to pursue a romantic relationship.

He graduates in May, so I wouldn't do anything that would get either of us in trouble. Just looking to flirt and get to know him so maybe things progress AFTER may

No, no, no!

Flirting or dating the grad assistant is not ethical behavior. In some cases, it can get you kicked out.

Forget about it, no matter how cute he is. Off limits!

Ah.

To be young again.

Okay, just make sure you're keeping your hormones in check, because you need to be focused on your learning-- not worrying about some hot guy (who is busy trying to do his job) who is a decade older than you.

I will say this, overtly flirting can appear obnoxious. Just be yourself.

Scrubs are unattractive but everybody wears them, so no disadvantage there. The confidence, intelligence and good nature you project shine through anything you are required to wear.

If you choose to pursue this, as JustBeachyNurse said, you'd better find out if there is going to be any policy issues that will compromise either of you.

If not, then why don't you just ask him out yourself?

If you think being rejected would make it too embarrassing to work with him again, then don't bother. You have to think about this.

Personally, I think the maturity difference between a 28 year-old man and a 19 year-old girl is vast. Don't put yourself in a position to get hurt.

But #1: keep your head on straight and your eye on the prize... and by that I mean successfully completing nursing school-- not Prince Charming.

Having known and worked with those GAs and TAs, I can promise you that your efforts will not go unnoticed.

 

However, having picked up your vibe, the GA is very likely having a big laugh at your expense with his other GA colleagues.

 

It happens every year. Go find somebody else to crush on.

Hygiene Queen, i appreciate your honest opinion, and i appreciate you not judging me. Im sure some people on this feed think I'm out of my mind and irresponsible, but trust me, crushing on a man older than me who is smart and ambitious is far better than hooking up with a frat boy man-child who does keg stands that is closer to my age. I've never been the type of girl to just try to "catch a husband," so i know that my focus on life is to learn and be the best nurse i can, regardless of mr. Prince Charming. Even if things don't work out romantically, it would still be great to have him as a friend

GrnTea despite what you may have seen, I promise I am very subtle about it. Nothing worse than a girl throwing herself at a man

Your post bespeaks of your youth. You are there to get an education. He may be eye candy but it isn't always wise to indulge in treats.

N N O O O ! ! ! :no:

 

Even if he returns your feelings, you will either get kicked out of school or the rest of your schooling will be miserable. Just. Say. No.

i can't get kicked out of school for dating a student who graduated in may. I obviously wouldn't persue a relationship until after he is no longer my GA.
