    Oh god, I need help. I have the biggest crush on my English teacher and I need to get over it. He’s in his 20’s and he’s married. I don’t know what to do about it. I always catch him staring at me though but I’m probably just misreading this all. I love his personality and he’s adorable! I mean I know he likes me as his student and nothing more - he does have a wife after-all.

    I don’t know how to get over this stupid crush, I thought it would be gone by now.

    If you two had any kind of relationship or contact then he would lose his job, have a criminal record and his life would be ruined. Do you want that for him? Is that fair on him? No. Get over it.

    Obviously I already know that which is why I’m asking how to get over him. There’s no need to be rude.

    You're not the first and won't be the last to have a crush on a teacher. It is very common. You know it is wrong, so will not act on it. In time your teenage brain will fixate on someone else.

    Just don't do anything you might regret for the rest of your school career. No need to feel guilty though, just a matter of age.
    Crushes need time to get over, might speed it up by stopping yourself thinking about it (tell yourself "it's over/it's nothing" whenever you catch yourself thinking about that)
    Maybe channel it to a "healthier" interest, go out clubbing or something.

    Yeah, I thought I’d be over it by now. Clearly not. :/

    Dunno, just remember how creepy and wrong that kind of relationship would be until you're put off

    Well, yeah! I can’t help it. I’m not too worried about my English exams anyway, I’m pretty confident with English.

    I'm not being rude, I'm being blunt and to the point. If you have a conscious you should realise that having these feelings is incredibly wrong and that in itself should be enough to be able to block them out, and if it's not then just suck it up and deal with it. But don't do anything stupid or selfish. I'm not going to wrap you up in cotton wool and tell you everything will work out, this is the harsh reality of the situation.

    It could end up being a major distraction for your other subjects

    I do know these feelings are wrong, I’m not an idiot. I wouldn’t act on these feelings either, why would I risk someone’s career because I have feelings for them? But I can’t block them out. And I’m not asking you to comfort me and lie to me to make me feel better, it’s just that what you said sounded rude and seemed like you thought I was stupid or something.

    don't worry, we've all been there at some point or another. I know how annoying it is when you can't get over a crush, particularly one that just won't ever work out, but the best advice i can give you is to force yourself not to zone out and go to *that* place in your mind in your lesson with him, actively distract yourself with work and discussions with friends, and try to find a different guy/girl to crush on. Or you could try thinking of a celeb you find attractive (try timothee chalamet if you're struggling!) and compare them to ur teacher until the teacher seems realyl boring and mundane.
    Goodluck b!

    If someone being blunt and to the point comes across as rude and offends you then god help you in life is all I can say. I don't think you're stupid by any means, but this is something that you have to block out whether you like it or not and I'm not someone to waffle when I give my two cents.

    It doesn’t usually, your comment just did.
