(CRI Online) A row's broken out online over a series of photos allegedly showing military training instructors expressing their love to first year students at the Linyi campus of QingdaoTechnological University.
The photos posted online appear to show some military training instructors in uniform hugging, kissing or courting the affections of some of the young students.
In their defence, supporters say that everyone has the right to fall in love with someone else regardless of his or her role in life.But many netizens have argued that instructors should abide by military service rules.
Under those regulations, compulsory service personnel and officers in China are forbidden from forming personal relationships at their residence. http://www.people.com.cn/mediafile/pic/GQ/20160927/29/8500304256827714385.jpg

While it is accepted that they might fall in love, it is seen as improper to hug or kiss at their barracks. It's suggested that they keep contact with those they fall in love with, and start dating properly after retirement.
By Saturday, both the military and university said they'd looked into the case. The university side said freshmen needed a good environment to study, to avoid pressure, and lead a common campus life.

The picture shows the military instructor confesses affection to a female college student, giving flowers at Linyi campus of Qingdao University of Technology.
Such relationships are as inappropriate as a relationship between a teacher and a student.
When one of the people (usually the man), is in a position of authority, there should be no sexual or romantic contact tolerated as the authority can be abused so easily.
It is about knowing and sticking to appropriate boundaries.
While some people think such 'romances' are 'cute' or 'pure', there is always an element of power and position being abused. It's an abuse of authority.
