    Hey, for some reason I seem to have a track record for fancying teachers. I'm 16 atm and when I was 14 I fancied my history teacher. I have always been attracted to intelligence above all else and have low self esteem, plus history was/is my favourite subject, so I think this is what drew me to him. He left the school during Christmas of year nine, not that I would have ever acted on it anyway. During year ten I fancied my maths teacher and now that I have been moved up into top set in year eleven I fancy my new one - I think this is because maths is the only subject I find challenging and so they both seem very intelligent for being good at it in my eyes. I am fully aware of how wrong teacher-student relationships are and would never get involved in one. Tbh I blame my weaknesses for accents (he's Irish!). My question is how to stop as I see my current teacher daily and talk to him on a regular basis. Thanks

    Focus on their flaws and try to see their bad qualities, it may help you start to put you off him.

    Perhaps make new friends, you may find someone you like more and it serves as a distraction from him.

    you make moves on him \Rightarrow he could lose his job if he makes moves on you \Rightarrow you'll probably never see him again

    I am known for it too!!! I got in to trouble in school for fancying one. Funnily enough he was a history teacher too. He never taught me but was a brilliant guy to me and every time I got kicked out of a class or whatever he'd take me in to his so I didn't get in to more trouble.. he once walked in the classroom and everyone wolf whistled and looked at me and him. Haven't seen him in 5/6 years and tbh sometimes I still do think about him. Was gutted when he left. Had a fancy to my first college english teacher (still do lol) and I'm resitting GCSE Maths atm and I've taken a slight liking to my maths teacher too... whoops!!!
