Q: Dating Your Boss

I know back in America dating your boss seen as a negative thing in several ways, but is it the same here in China? In Beijing? I ask because I might start teaching at a nice ESL school and the interview was today. A young woman did the interview and monitored my demo class. I couldn't judge her age but she was very very attractive. She appeared to be, in the short time I was with her, a quality woman. The only thing is, she's the supervisor there. I kind of got the feeling she liked me, but really it could just be friendliness. It's always difficult for me to tell the two apart. Anyway, is it considered bad taste to try to date your superior? I mean, they probably want to find someone just like everyone else, right? I'm not talking about the casual dating, as I take relationships seriously. Naturally I wouldn't want to get fired over it. Should I go for it or just forget it and look elsewhere?

I would NEVER date my boss.  He's as ugly as sin.  (Plus he's not my type.)

She will string you along just to get you to sign the contract. Then she will screw you in a different way than you seem to expect she will.

I worked in a lab in Shanghai last summer. My supervisor was this ultra-hot early 30s lady from Chongqing. If you saw her.. you knew why many Chinese say Sichuan girls are so hot [technical CQ is not in Sichuan anymore, but...]. She wore a Chinese dress to work EVERY DAY!! What do you call those.. qi pao.. oh goddd.. Her body was rockin' in that skin tight Chinese dress. The butt, the rack, this woman had a perfect body..

 

Haha, I did everything to her for about 2 months.... And then her husband came back to Shanghai.... and then I said "wtf!!!' And she said.. "sorry." Damn she was good though. It's women like this that make a man consider murder... and then we could be together... devil

Here's another career opportunity, I'll date your boss for money if you don't want to. That way you don't get fired. Cardiac arrests are optional and payments always in advance.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
