I did something awful at college and I feel so, so ashamed Watch

    On Thursday this week, in class, my teacher (female, late 20s) was bending over when helping the student opposite me. Since she was wearing a loose top, her cleavage was showing and, for a split second, it caught my eye and I unintentionally stared at it. Literally half a second later, she looked at me and caught me staring, I immediately looked to the side. Then she put her hand on her chin, so that her elbow was pressing against her shirt to prevent her chest from showing, and continued helping out the student. The fact that I looked away as soon as she saw me made it clear to her that I was doing something I shouldn't be, but I don't know if she knows I had intended to look. It might have looked like I saw it accidentally since she was directly opposite me.

    For the rest of the lesson I avoided eye contact with her. She must have felt so uncomfortable and I am honestly really ashamed for this disrespectful behaviour... I usually do really well in this subject, I answer lots of questions and I think she's a brilliant teacher. But after this incident I don't know if she can still see me the same again. I'm an 18 year-old-girl, in Year 13, so that probably just made it 3 times more awkward...

    Please help - do you think she can just forget what happened? I certainly can't :/

    as you're a girl it's probably no big deal to her....

    you're stressing out over nothing imo

    LOL.....could be a lot worse if you were a guy. I'd say in the worst case scenario, she thinks you're a Les.
