    Right ok so i've recently taken up driving lessons and i'm really starting to have pretty strong feelings for my instructor, i'm 21 and he's about twice my age, but we get on incredibly well, we always have such a laugh during our lessons and do feel some chemistry between us. Although he's very professional and clearly doesn't want to let anything get in the way of teaching me, we've exchanged a lot of flirty banter and some equally flirty, suggestive texts from which I know the attraction is definately there on his part. He's not in a relationship, but is divorced with kids, which i'd normally find quite weird and i know all about the stereotype of sleazy instructors making a pass at all young pupils but he's not like that at all, he's really genuwine with a great personality and i've been completely lured in by that.

    i've had a few relationships, so i'm not someone naive and inexperienced harking after the attention, nor am i someone who is usually attracted to older men. What i will say though is i'm often easily wrapped up in fantasy, wanting and pursuing what i can't have with ease, i love a chase basically. What do people reckon, is this an unattainable fantasy and should i just get a grip, or go ahead and make what i feel for him clear. I know it might affect his reputation if anything was pursued as it's totally unprofessional, and i mean he's practically a single dad so he probs won't want to do anything that might impinge on his family life...hmm, am i just being a silly little girl here?

    Maybe wait until after your lessons have stopped to prevent it from affecting your process of learning? Afterwards I see no reason as to why it's not reasonable to pursue the relationship.

    Are you sure you are reading the signals and signs???????????










    As remember when you see a roundabout sign you must prepare yourself to indicate, and indicate when turning off the roundabout.

    Males whose professions involve driving always seem creepy to me, especially driving instructors and taxi drivers, I don't know why. :dontknow:

    You've got me thinking of the scene from the Inbetweeners where Simon is taking his driving lesson.

    Go to change the gearstick then accidentally slip and put your hand a bit further to the left. He'll love it.

    haha, alright alright with the jokes.

    and well i'm not normally, but he's athletic and pretty attractive for his age. it's his humour, maturity and experience i find most appealling though...not to sound arrogant or anything, but i am considered quite an attractive girl so it's not like i couldn't have someone my own age, i just can't stop thinking about getting with him...I mean i wouldn't be looking for anything serious here as i'm not looking for anything serious at all really right now. I'm just concerned as to how it might be limited by/ pose danger to his profession and whatever
