When he left my school to teach elsewhere, I gave him a thank-you letter telling him how he helped me grow, and later when I unexpectedly ran into him, he said, "Thank you for your letter. I will keep it forever."
Anyway, I just don't understand why I still think about him even after he's out of my life. I do have some guys pursuing me, but even if they are kind of cute, I don't know why it's never as intense as my prof crush. The sad thing is that I developed a liking for the smell of cigarettes because of him, and I never liked it before; he's a smoker and always smelled like that. God, I hope that wasn't TMI/inappropriate.
So my questions are the following:
1.) Why do you think professor crushes can be more intense, as with this situation? I'm really trying to figure out the psychology of all of this.
2.) Have you ever had a crush on an instructor? Tell us about it and how it went.
3.) What else do you have to comment regarding this situation or idea?
