Okay, so I've know my teacher since I was a freshman, and he was my boyfriends U.S. teacher and we got along instantly. But over the years we've grown closer and I had him as a teacher a few times and we shared laughs and such. At first we jokingly said that he was my long lost father but I began to really see him as someone I could be with, however he's 46 and I'm 17. I'm convinced though that he likes me too because he trusts me and tells me I'm pretty all the time. There are also those tell tale awkward moments between us that individuals share when they're crushing on each other seeing as we share an immense amount of alone time together. I mean maybe I'm crazy and this is just something I should abandon but I want to see if there is any reason why I should stay and pursue this.
