Looking up to and respecting a teacher can quickly turn into a crush with the raging hormones of adolescence.

Many teachers have had to learn to deal with these students gracefully, but the stories of the more obvious crushes are quite entertaining.


Reddit user u/iatemydig69 asked:

"Teachers of Reddit, what was the most obvious 'teacher crush' someone had on you?"

10.

I had a student who had a rough life. Mom pretty much abandoned him, and grandma was raising him by pawning him off to family on the weekends. I knew he was going to have a rough life if someone didn't step in and let him know he mattered. He asked me one day how I would know if someone loved me. I jokingly replied that that person would bring me coffee in the morning. A few days later he came into the gym with a huge smile and a cup of gas station coffee. He walked right up and handed it to me along with a bag of creamers and sugars.

He said he didn't know how I liked my coffee so he grabbed one of each. He saved his allowance, and asked his grandma to leave for school early so he could stop by the gas station. The next year he brought me a coffee mug so I could remember him when I drank my morning coffee. That kid will always have my heart.

In the days of msn, I got a chat invite from someone who had the same last name as me. I assumed it was a relation, but they didn't say anything and so I left for a bit to eat. I came back and saw a couple more people had been added to the chat and saw they'd been talking about me. I realised they were students because they referred to me as 'Miss --'. They were teasing one of the others for his crush on me and he was defending my 'massive butt' as 'hot'.

I taught Pre-K and one student always wanted to he around me and would pretend to slip up and call me mom. He saw my phone had a screensaver of me and my at the time boyfriend and he got all mad and said I should break up with him lol. Kids are adorable, I doubt he'll remember me in a few years

Working as a substitute teacher, i had a sixth grader hand in a poem that went: "Roses are red, violets are Blue I am single, how about you?"

She also worked her phone number into another poem she handed in.

I had a kid ask me to marry him the other day. Then he proceeded to say I would be way to old for him by the time he was old enough to get married.

Back when I was teaching preschool. Three-year-olds don't do subtle. He always wanted to hold my hand when we went on walks, to sit next to me at circle time, and just to look at me with puppy eyes. It was adorable, but at the same time it was a relief when he grew out of it.

Years later, I was teaching an all-boy class at a vocational high school and was lucky enough to get a bright new teacher on a Comenius exchange to co-teach the class with me. She was also quite attractive and the boys.... reacted. Since it was an English language class, I got a kick out of doing my best Mary Poppins impression: "Close your mouth, please, we are not a codfish."

I had a student ask me if I was married....yes. This was followed by, "but are you happily married?" I started teaching way too young.

I taught preschool and the owners grandson would tell everyone we were going to get married once he was done with first grade. He even gave me mittens with hearts on them because hearts are for love. He's in middle school now and doesn't remember me. 🤷🏼♀️

Starting teaching High School English at 21 in the early 90s. (Very religious) student wrote me an anonymous letter explaining that she believed that God had put her in my class because we were meant to be together. Figured it out by handwriting, reported it. It was last days of the school year before she graduated, so I don't think I ever had to deal with her being in my class again because of finals or something.

Friendship is not something that can be forced.

As with any kind of relationship, it all depends on compatibility and chemistry, and thus must happen organically.

On the flip side though, it can be pretty clear when people will not end up being your friends, owing to a fundamental difference in personality or beliefs.

Redditor Chola_Bhatora was curious to hear the type of people the Reddit community would never become chummy with, leading them to ask:

"What kind of person would you never be friends with?"

We all have our likes and dislikes when it comes to food.

While some people might not be able to stop eating certain foods, the very thought of that same food is enough to make others gag.

Then there are the foods which are universally considered to be delicious delicacies, the foods so revered that it is assumed that everyone must find them delicious.

Only, not everyone does.

Redditor jamboamericano was curious to hear which foods the Reddit community couldn't quite grasp the appeal of, leading them to ask:

"What a food in your opinion that quite simply sucks and you don’t understand the hype behind it?"
