My Teacher is Flirting
Visitor's Question from a 13-15 year old Female
I have a question concerning my teacher. He is young and he is rather attractive, I smile alot, so I suppose he is taking my friendly, warm smiles as flirtatiousness. Any who, he constantly uses me as examples in class, and when he is teaching he looks directly at me, and always pulls me to the side telling me things (related to social and school life) and mocking me. He laughs at me when I get sarcastic. It's really cool. I know that he has a fiance and all, but this is nothing serious is it?
Teachers aren't really that much different than other people, and they can enjoy the friendship of students just as much as they enjoy friendships with other teachers and other adults and teeangers. It does sound like he likes you as a person and has fun hanging out with you.
Teachers are very aware of the issues that can come up if that friendship got out of hand. Because they have grade control over students, that would be just as bad as a boss getting involved with his secretary or so on. It's just not a good situation when one person in the partnership has "control" over the other. So I really doubt it's anything more than just fun flirting.
