To all the teachers out there: if a student claims to have feelings for you, do not treat them badly. Do not insult them, or ignore them. Be patient, and thoughtful. Let them know that you don’t return the feelings if it’s the case, tell them that you are flattered if you feel comfortable doing so. The key is to remember that they are vulnerable and that every word that comes out of your mouth will affect them, one way or another. Treat them as a human being. A person. A person who should be respected, and has their own feelings. Don’t treat them as a child, or a teenager. Don’t treat them as a student who knows nothing. Take a deep breath, and try to be reasonable. Try to understand. Patience.

You know what really does piss me off? When other people say ‘ew, you love them

YES I DO FUCKING LOVE THEM AND IF I WANTED YOUR OPINION ON MY PERSONAL LIFE I WOULD HAVE ASKED FOR IT THANK YOU VERY MUCH BUT AT THIS POINT IN TIME IT IS NOT WANTED SO YOU CAN LEAVE NOW

Chillin in his office right now
  • Me:I'm sor--
  • Him:Don't apologize. I needed to hear it.
  • Me:I know but--
  • Him:Don't say you could have done it nicer because you know that I wouldn't have listened if you did.
  • Me:Then what do you want to do?
  • Him:Well, I can't just push aside my feelings.
  • Me:Me either, aha, but we can't do anything about the feelings right now. I don't want to jeopardize anything. If you lose your job, you're going to hate me.
  • Him:I could never hate you.
  • Me:Even so, I would hate myself for making you lose your job. If the school found out, you'd probably go to jail. That can't happen either. I'd rather be "just friends" until graduation because I can't lose you like that. Not if I can prevent it.
  • Him:You're so wonderful, you know that? You're looking out for me and you care enough to make sure that I don't mess up my life over you when most girls would want that because of how in love they are with someone. And you? You're not selfish. You can be mean, but you're not selfish.
  • Me:Ya. I gotta go, though. Can we pick this up after school?
  • Him:Certainly.
  • Me:Cool.
  • Him:Cool.
  • Me:Maybe 'cool' can be our 'always'
  • Him:You didn't...get out.
  • Me:Fair enough.
  • And then I left

Me and R spoke!

So obviously this year has started a little rough for me on account I never see him anymore and stuff but he approached me at long last. We had a great chat and laughed about something; and honestly I don’t even see him laughing with anyone else (unless it’s another teacher and even that is rare). This situation is 100% annoying as fuck considering our relationship wouldn’t even be illegal.

Oh well. I feel like I have some closure now and even if I never speak to him until I leave, we’ve kinda concluded last year.

Hope everyone is doing great with their TCs :)
