Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc.Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing...Ex person you were talking to is now your client in real life It is only a problem (assuming that you are in the medical profession) if you are talking about sensitive subject matter on a forum thread, that would and could be seen as a violation of HIPPA. The important thing is remembering not to date patients, which really is not that difficult to remember.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.As long as you maintain a high degree of professionalism there should be no problem, but with that said, be very, very selective in your dating choices.Being picky may save you a world of professional headaches/drama later.It is only a problem (assuming that you are in the medical profession) if you are talking about sensitive subject matter on a forum thread, that would and could be seen as a violation of HIPPA.You could also be in violation if you go out on a date and discuss privileged and private information with someone. and according to HIPPA you never ever discuss patient specific information with any non-authorized entities period whether they be online or in the real world.
Dismissed it until I realized I never encountered a lawyer/cop/doctor on this site.
If you behave like a normal person is it really that bad?
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.
Sometimes we need an outlet as well and don't always have the hours to support traditional dating (meeting people in a club, gym, etc).
Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate.
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.
