Dear Culturalist: Is It a Bad Idea to Date a Cop?

By Onya Ganja on March 27, 2017

Dear Culturalist,I like a police officer. Is it bad to date him?

So you want to sleep with the man, but you're worried it might be “bad,” eh? Bad can mean a lot of different things. Do I think it might be harmful? Maybe. Do I think it might be a dreadful decision? Possibly. Do I think it is immoral? Not unless you are getting with him for revenge purposes, behind your gang’s back or one of you is married.

In general we can surmise that dating cops is acceptable behavior in western society because lots of people do it. The fact you are writing me alerts me to the fact this might be a careless decision for you personally. We can figure that out together though.

You need to consider what kind of cop he is and what kind of civilian you are in order to assess how really unwise of a decision dating this policeman might be. So let’s think about what kind of citizen you are. Are you the leader of an organized crime syndicate? Or even a part of one? If you answer yes or maybe, getting romantic with an officer is definitely not a great idea, probably not even a good one.
