I'm planning ahead for my main series, and one of the issues to be tackled will be my main character having a crush on her teacher. She sees all the boys her age as immature jerks, weather they are or not, but there's this one man in his late twenties she's got her eye on. He seems to always have time to listen to her problems, but she doesn't dare say anything to him in case he says "no". The teacher isn't sure what she's up to - she likes to ask him for advice and always listens to him in class. At first he thinks she's an attentive pupil, but then he hears some of the other teachers saying she's a lazy day-dreamer. When she starts talking to him at break times, he likes the attention and doesn't want to send her away in case he hurts her feelings, but he thinks he might get into trouble if anyone suspects them of having a relationship - which hasn't happened up to this point. In the end she doesn't ask him to start a relationship, but I'm wondering what would go through the teacher's mind in the meantime? Would it be realistic for him to play the role matchmaker just to get her off his back?
