Dear ShakeUp Team,
You see me in your tweets weekly. You see me commenting on TurnUpLetters every week. I am obsessed because you guys are some of the most entertaining people I’ve ever encountered on Twitter. Now, I feel like it’s time to come to you with a real life issue of my own…
About 6 months, I started pursuing a relationship with one of my students. Before you judge, I should say he’s definitely of age. I’m no… molester… although I do feel like one.
We met last year when he was a freshman at ________ State University outside of Atlanta. He started lingering around at the end class, asking lots of questions, which of course I was happy to answer. I couldn’t deny the fact that he was a very attractive young man, and a pretty smart college student. Someone I wish I would’ve came across in college. We started eating lunch in various places around campus and eventually he asked me out and I accepted.
6 months later, he calls me his woman and although he’s nearly 20, my 27 year old mind just can’t bring itself to call him my boyfriend. My lover. My significant other. Although… I do feel all of these things.
I am in clear violation of University policies; although this relationship is clearly legal. I don’t want to ruin his student life and I don’t want to ruin my career. I can’t take this to my peers.
