Falling in love, but life sucks!

Dear AL:
I've been reading your blog for quite a long while now and it sometimes makes my day to read the funny, crazy advice you dish. (but it also warms my heart!)

I think I'm falling in love with my college professor. I don't know what to do, I've tried to shelve this feeling for so long now, but it still doesn't go away. I do not dare tell it to anybody because I know they are going to frown at me and disapprove. What should I do?

Life sux too, because everything is so stiff and horrible around here. I can't express myself, can't laugh, can't really be who I am, and who I want to be. Oh Al, I feel so down just thinking about this "confinement" I'm in, where the people around me limit me because my thinking differs from theirs and I am unable to voice out my thoughts and opinions. They want me to be who they expect me to be. :(

Dear Alexandra:
Fuck 'em! Not your friends, your teacher. But if he's that dude above, you have problems.

Ok, seriously, you're probably not the only one who has fallen in love with your professor, and the last thing you need is someone finding out, specially the others who are also interested in him. They will announce this revelation to the world out of jealousy, guaranteed, to ruin your reputation. One sure fire way to get him off your mind, talk shit about the others.

If you're not comfortable where your at, move. Some people would just say fuck those assholes, just be yourself... but I know how it is when people already see you in one way, they wont change their way of thinking no matter how many times you show them different.

Move... It's beats kicking them in the balls.

Move? Al, you can't be serious!

She needs to stick it out, fight them tooth and nail, and show these assholes who she really is!

Why be what others want you to be? That is not truly living. Be yourself.

The Stiltwalker must be a straight "A" student.

Love AL

You crack me up!

I had a teacher who looked exactly like my ex and I had a hard time concentrating in class at times LOL He was just as sexy as my ex; or perhaps more... but alas, he was married.

Why bother with what people say? People's tongues will never stop wagging. Live with it and turn a deaf ear on that or move, like Al said... Good luck.
