Dating my college professor
• Yale University, Duke University, Middlebury College, Rice University, Iowa State University and Syracuse University are just a few of the schools that either highly discourage professor-student affairs, or completely prohibit the relationships. • If the relationship ends poorly, professors are the ones to get in trouble, not students.
Sometimes these problems can result in the professor being fired.
After a few drinks with John, he invited me to join him at home. We sat on his suede couch, in his perfectly manicured bachelor pad, discussing our confusing situation.
Here’s the thing: once you acknowledge the mutual attraction, there’s no turning back. I smiled, giggled, and before I knew it, my dress was somewhere on the floor of his living room. He graduated college, held and lost jobs, moved to and from multiple states, and created a name for himself in the music industry.
For the first time in my academic career, I had a hot professor.
I couldn’t help but stare at him throughout the class.
The following week, John assigned the class an easy extra-credit opportunity—attend a show of a local songwriter who recently spoke to our class.
