The After School Teacher
I was a university teacher for adults who did night classes. It was against the rules but John was a student that was older than me anyway. I had always imagined him as the perfect student. He was smart, funny, and always engaged in class. So, when he asked me out, I thought it was too good to be true.
We went on a few dates, and it was nice. However, I realized that he wasn’t the perfect student I had imagined him to be. He was lazy and didn’t care about his grades. I couldn’t be with someone who didn’t share my passion for education.
While having a secret crush can be a thrilling experience, it is essential to keep your emotions in check and to respect the boundaries of others.
When those boundaries are crossed, the dreamy crush can quickly turn into a nightmare, causing emotional and psychological harm to both yourself and others.
