Small town, it was bound to happen, i suppose

  1. Ok, i admit, i'm signed up at a personal website. Re-signed, that is. Just a description, which includes why there is no photo or profession listed on my profile (yeah, just what i need, someone at WORK saying "HEY SAW YA ONLINE")

    I got a reply a minute ago. I thought the wording from this person was, uh familiar. Clicked on the attachment to see the picture.

    EEEEEEK. My current Literature professor.:stone No kidding.

    Eeek, as in, my teacher. Nice guy, under 40, etc. But he's my teacher.

    That's freaky. I hope you declined.

    Oh my goodness! :uhoh21: That is TOO coincidental! I think I'd let him know it's you..........but let him know face to face. I don't see anything wrong in dating one's professor if he/she is single AS LONG AS it is one adult dating another adult. What do you think of your literature professor? Is he your kind of guy?

    Well, not yet, i had other stuff to do.

    There's no way that he knew i was one of his students, though.

    Honestly, if i saw him out somewhere, and he wasn't my teacher, i'd be attracted.

    He's a nice looking guy, well spoken, etc. Plus he loves dogs.

    He is single, never married, even stated in class he was so busy getting his doctorate that relationships took the back burner (when a student asked if a person could have a life while pursuing their PhD).

    Figures. A guy like that AND he my teacher :stone

    If i weren't in his class, i wouldn't see an issue with it.

    On the other hand, i only have a week left. Still, can we say 'ackward'?

    <wink> the semester is almost over and then he won't be your teacher will he?

    As someone else said - nothing wrong with 2 adults dating.

    Marie................after the class ends...........make a point of getting to know him......only this time as a potential mate for yourself. Go for it! You have nothing to lose but the opportunity of seeing if it would work out or not. Take a risk, be safe, and ask the man on a date to a Starbuck or Shopping Mall Food Court for lunch. See where it leads. I wish you well. Heck...if you don't want him....ya know I'm "horny".

    I'm thinking what i might do is tell him that i am interested, but finals will keep me busy next week and maybe just keep emailing.

    Even though the teacher thing is weird, i'd hate to discredit a potentially good guy just because he was my professor for one more week.
