Is it acceptable to be good friends with a teacher ...

Is it acceptable to be good friends with a teacher of the opposite sex? I'm 17 years old at an only-girls school. I am really close to a male teacher (even though he is not currently teach me). I met him when I was 13 through a sporting activity. Over the years we have grown closer, and have become friends. He is 37, and is married with kids. We have the same interests and have long and fulfulling conversations. Me, him and my friend (also 17) are best friends and do so much together. Recently the 3 of us went to a different city for a concert, and had the best night ever. Our relationship is not sexual in any way, though we do greet with hugs sometimes. I do love him, but only as a friend. He feels the same way. A lot of people find this friendship weird, and many disapprove. But he looks after me, and is definitely young at heart. I can see us being friends forever. I love every minute I spend with him. I don't know what to think/do, and whether this relationship is truly wrong or weird? Please help!


Under what circumstances would a man get very nervous about ...

Under what circumstances would a man get very nervous about a male friend he has known over 30 years? He said he does not like his friend's behavior. He talked several times about his friend and he told me he was very frustrated that his male friend did not get him a good 40th birthday present. Why is that? He says his friend is being is being a bad friend. Why? I asked him if his friend has a wife, but he ignored the question. Why? I need help. I still love him a lot but I really need to know the truth. What to do and what to ask? He is a very sensitive person and I am afraid he might be upset if I don't phrase the question properly. I would appreciate your opinion on this.

I like this girl..I am always flirting with her and calling her my baby..she goes along with it..Then she says I'm cool and a sweetheart but she sees me as a friend. I asked her if it would be a bad idea if I tried to win her over and she said that she sees me as a friend but if I want to continue and try then its my decision. What should I do, I am very confused??

I like my best friend but he may be gay

I'm a female and a junior in high school right now. In freshman year I started liking my best friend Ben. Things have been intensifying over the past two years and I always thought Ben was flirting with me. He would touch me, play with my hair, and hint at things like kissing me and dating. Then, 2 weeks ago, Ben was asked on a date by another girl. He called me for advice and, though it killed me, told him to go for it. He told me he didn't want to and it was very complicated. I asked him why and jokingly asked him if he was gay. He surprisingly answered with an "I think I might be." What do I do so as not to ruin our friendship? Why did I like him so much? Why did he flirt with me? And most of all, why didn't he tell me sooner? I could have gotten over him a lot easier if he had told me last year. I mean, we are BEST FRIENDS and I would die without him. The only problem is, him being my best friend, I have no one else to talk to about this. I'm the only one he's come out to.


I am bisexual, and people don’t seem to be able ...

I am a Bi girl, but ever since I let people in my gym class know, they all seem to hate me even more than before! They say everything I do is wrong! My neighbor is doing that, but also my friend. Every time we fight he tells me 'Go away, you bisexual freak!' A lot of my friends are bi as well and I have a girlfriend, but it seems so hard for people to accept me! I also can't tell my mom because she thinks I am too young to decide about my sexuality. What should I do?



I am straight, but I have feelings for a girl

A lot of the guys at my work always flirt with me and ask me for my number and want to hangout, but I'm never interested in them because I am too busy focusing on this girl at work that might be bisexual. I'm straight and I never felt like this towards a girl until I met her. All I do is daydream about her. We talk a lot at work. A lot of people think she is bisexual and she is always making eye contact with me from across the room and turning away with a smile if I catch her, and I do the same thing. She also touches me from behind and makes me super nervous... But she has been talking about her ex for a while who is a guy so I'm so confused about whether she is bi and what to do... I really want to know if she's into me, but if she's not, that will make both of us very uncomfortable and embarrassed at work, especially because this is the only girl I have ever had feelings like this for... Please help! Thanks.


Should I have sex with my friend? He doesn’t want ...

I have a friend I've know for over 10 years and there's always been a strong attraction there and still is on both of our parts. Only he says he doesn't want a relationship but he wants to make love to me. I told him he doesn't love me to say – “make love”. He never denied it or agreed. Should I have sex with him?




I’m in love with my best friend who is a ...

I just graduated from college and told my best male straight friend that I have fallen madly in love with him the day before we received our diplomas. I have been in denial over these feelings for over a year now, as I wasn't even able to tell myself for the longest time. I have always been attracted to girls; though have never had a sexual experience with them or anyone else for that matter. I have fantasized about girls many times, but have never had a passion for anyone like I have for my best male friend. I deeply love him, but he isn't that way even though amazingly he still wants me as his close friend. What do I do? Am I definitely bisexual? And also, how do I cope with the heartbreaking feelings of knowing that I can't be with him in this way? This is extremely difficult and I honestly don't know what to do. My career is also in the public eye, so I need to be careful about whom I talk sexually based things to.
