It neither holds back nor forces itself into being felt by people; it just happens. And when it does, it makes everyone ecstatic and hopeful. Others claim to discover their purpose in life with the love that they found. But as with any emotion that compels corresponding action, being "in love" might not always be what it seems.
A lot of people are infatuated with the very idea of loving and being loved by somebody, such that they attach themselves to that person and imagine a perfect world with them. Such is the case in most student-teacher relationships.
Here are 15 people who find themselves in a pickle as they admit to have hooked up with their professors. People may frown upon the age difference, but the idea of dating a professor is not totally far-fetched for consenting adults such as college and post-grad students.
But plunging into an illicit affair—and eventually costing someone a marriage—is a different story altogether. This student has been hooking up with her professor for years, and even contributed to his divorce from his wife. Really, nothing is certain in this world anymore. Decades-long marriages can crumble and families can break apart because someone else came into the picture. And rationally speaking, there's no telling what can happen to the two-year relationship that caused it.
Failing to pass a critical project on time often translates to ultimately failing the class—and it is the dreaded nightmarish college situation that no student would want to be in. Avoiding it at all costs, this college student slept with her teacher during her freshman year to get a little leniency on the deadline.
And while the act was alarmingly distasteful, it actually worked. But really, who's on the losing end in this game? Oh, the things you do for college education It's almost expected in government and at work, and it is not uncommon in schools either. When students are caught in the act of doing whatever it is that is strictly prohibited, they find themselves entangled in a situation where there seems to be no escape.
There are people, however, who seem to know exactly their way out. For the witness to keep their lips sealed, some of them would willingly give something up in exchange. But what's a student to do if they get caught by their teacher? This confession reveals how such a situation can turn into a complicated web of exploits, as it leads into a controversial and scandalous student-teacher hookup.
Maybe they get a kick out of doing some really sneaky things behind people's backs and getting away with it. Or perhaps, it's an escape from a world that scares or bores them out of their wits, and some people find refuge in being with someone who feels the same. This confession of a gay college student hooking up with a married professor is one that may suggest an adventure for both. It suggests an exciting but dangerous affair that can lead to a lot of complications on both sides of the coin.
This is the reason why a lot of students simply give up and move on to the workforce or trade school. Much like the rest of people braving life's daily battles, students are often caught in situations where they have their backs against the wall. This female student confesses to have been at a crossroads: And in this day and age of a college degree practically being your ticket to the future, did she have a choice?
In desperate efforts to pass a subject, these students tend to act strangely and even do the absurd. The absurd may range from the reasonable—such as refusing to party and opting to study instead—to the wild ways, such as, well, sleeping with the teacher.
That doesn't make it less alarming, though. But this student is at a loss over how her problem compounded quite unexpectedly as her professor still failed her after they did the deed! And the biggest speculation of them all is that she must have slept with the professor for the grade. Nothing surprising in that, if you ask most people.
But some stories are meant to take a different twist.
