Romantic interest in instructor For several months now, I've been romantically interested in my instructor. I actually feel like I'm in love with him, and sometimes, it's so emotionally draining b/c I know that I can't talk to him about or expect the same feelings in return b/c of our studio policy that forbids student-teacher relationships. He is always professional, but it's hard wanting something I know that I can't have. Maybe it could be possible if I stopped being a student at my studio or if I became a pro, but I do not plan on doing either. Sometimes, I wonder if he feels the same, though, maybe not to the extent that I feel, but I at least know that if we didn't have a student/teacher relationship, we would be good friends outside of the studio (he basically said that to me as well since we relate quite well to each other). Our personalities suit each other really well. Sometimes, I feel like I should just quit being his student for my own self-preservation, but I know that I would be SO unhappy not seeing him anymore, not just b/c I really like him but also b/c he is a really good teacher, and his teaching style fits me better than the rest of the instructors at my studio. Just wondering if anyone has any advice on this or can relate to this situation. I know it's not uncommon for students to develop crushes on their teachers, but I feel like this is more than just a little crush since it's gone on for so many months.
