Dear Dish-It, I Really Like My Teacher


Dear Dish-It, is here to whisper "ttyl after I've thought about this some more".


Dear Dish-It,

I am 14 and I really like my teacher who is 26. We have gone on some school trips and on both trips, he was VERY protective of me and watching out for me. Even other kids picked up on this. My teacher talked to my dad and told him I was a special student. He picks on me jokingly in class a lot too. How can I act towards him to show that I like him too? I know he doesn't LIKE me, LIKE me, but how should I act back to him so he keeps on doing what he is doing? I'm not doing much of anything now. I just smile and listen to him and don't act like a pain in the butt. I want to do more now, but I don't know what. Can you please tell me your ideas?

Dear AngelCC100,

Here's my advice - keep it to yourself and don't do anything. It's okay to crush on someone, even a teacher cuz they are people too. But it's NOT at all okay for something romantic to happen between you and the teach. First off, he's way too old for ya - according to your email, you're 12 years apart and that's a gigantic gap. Also, he's your teacher! That means it's wrong on a billion moral levels too. If you like the attention he's giving ya and you think he's a hottie, it's fine, but don't go flirting with him and turning it into some bad movie-of-the-week, tabloid thing. I suggest taking the time this summer to crush on a boy your own age.


So, ya gotta burnin' question? Need some love directions? Thinkin' 'bout stuff like depression, sex,how ya feel 'bout YOURSELF (that's called "self-esteem"), boyfriends, girlfriends, losin' old friends, bullyin' or peer pressure, but too scared to ask the parents? Don't be scared to .

    You doesnt have to come out to your family until your ready and until they is ready too.  If you blurt it out it could be the shock.  You says that you think your Mums side of the family will be more supportive.  Has you got an Aunty or Uncle what you could discuss this with?  An adult member of your family what is most likely supportive  could probably give the best advises on how to tell your family and when and how and prepares you for how they will react. Good luck mate and takes your time :angel

    I think my mothers side of the family would be fine with it. It's my dad's side I'm most concerned about. My dad says some dreadfully terrible remarks about homosexual people. I think I'm not gunna tell him at all. Ever...  Either way. Thanks for the advice!

    If you don't think that you'll be in a safe situation (for example, your parents try to kick you out, or hurt you physically or emotionally) than you should definitely wait to tell them. I think you'll know when the time is right. We can't tell you how they'll react, but I bet you can sort of figure it out from how they feel and act about these topics.  Remember, you are not obligated to tell anybody at all. It's personal. Wait until you're for sure ready to tell them. And when you do, tell them the way in which it's easiest. Get your point across, offer resources, reassurance, and give them time.

    Hey guys, so I do kinda have a personal issue, but I need to tell my family about it. Truth is, I'm not even sure how they'll even react. Very few of my friends know, only the ones I trust anyway... I'm gay. Or at least bisexual. I kinda had a thing for girls, but that was a long time ago. I think I'm fully gay. I have a very supportive boyfriend, who loves me with all his heart. But that's not what it's about; it's actually coming out to my family, whom I know some of them are quite homophobic. Homophobia runs in my family. Sorta...  It makes my stomach turn when I think about it. I sometimes look into the mirror, look at myself and think if my conscience suddenly made me decide I was gay, or if I was born with it. Science tells us that we are born that way, due to lack of man chemicals entering a boys brain when in development. I feel like I've chosen it (even though I know deep inside I haven't) to be gay, probably because of my family almost forcing me into getting a girlfriend and such. I come from a Catholic family, to make things even worse. I'm like the only practising person in my family, but somehow I feel that they'll use my Faith against me if I come out.  So, should I just wait until I'm older? How do I know when the time is right? How will they even react? How should I even say it?  Please help!
