Today, I met the man of my dreams. Insane click. He’s just as in love with me. He’s also got a condition I research in my job. It’s literally unethical for us to date. FML

Unless you are directly involved with his doctor or insurance company, I fail to see the conflict of interest. if anything it would make you better at your job, since he would benefit from the research and you would benefit from close interactions

You guys could always wait until the trial is over than see each other

Go for it. Nobody cares! If one data point is going to throw off your research, your sample size is too small for influential work.

Some times you just have to say 'Screw the ethics!' and go for what really matters! Wish you the best of luck!💕

If you feel that strongly, why not ask your director/HR and see if there's something you can do if an official declaration is made.. There's always a way...

I hope, for your sake, his "condition" isn't micropenis.

illiterate..... unethical...... I'm sorry hun that's an opinion you picked up from someone else.

It’s not unethical if you declare any potential conflict of interest and invite review of any data concerning him. Life is short and true love is relatively rare. Figure it out.

If you 2 are really in love why don’t the 2 of you meet with someone in your HR dept and see if there’s something that can be done. Like someone else wrote you might just have to wait until the trial is over.

I think what she means is that a researcher doesn't date the research, it would be like a whiskey maker dating a drunk or a police officer dating a convict not to mention that most researchers are barred from personal contact with the research subjects unfortunately.
