I’m in love my English teacher, Ms. Alexander. She drives me nuts to say the least! When I’m in her class, I can’t concentrate, and I always feel awkward and out of place. I want to tell her how I feel but I’m afraid she will freak out! I’m 16 and she’s 39.
Do you think we could have a relationship despite our age difference?
Dear Lizard Lips,
You know when you were around the age of 7 and absolutely had to have one of those scale model kits of a WWII Spitfire that was recommended for kids 12 and up? Do you remember how much you cried and begged before your parents bought one; even though they knew it was too complicated for you? Do you recall how confusing the model was once got you got your hands on it? I’m sure you haven’t forgotten that your dad ended up building it for you?
You are in a similar situation with your English teacher, but crying and begging will not work here! And I’m sure your dad won’t be quite as willing lend you a helping hand with something like this… A relationship with Ms. Alexander would be a bit more complex than putting together a scale model kit.
Why put your efforts in to something more age appropriate? Something you can figure out on you own? It will save you a lot of time, and unnecessary pain and agony.
