Does my teacher have a crush on me?

Does a teacher have a crush on me too? Why does he always look at me? Long story short, I had a teacher last year and I have a crush on him. Never planned on acting on it, but I got threatened to confess and I felt really scared and pressured so I wrote a note. Anyways he keeps looking at me and it's been happening a couple of months now. I thought it was because he hated me for what I've done, but wouldn't he want to ignore me and try to forget about me? What's weird was once after school, I was walking to my bus stop for art class and we were walking the same way. Since he's a fast walker, he walked in front of me, but he kept looking behind at me. He did it maybe 4 or 5 times. Another case was when I was talking to my friends one time after school and sort of just looked at my direction for a good 2 - 5 minutes. I didn't know he was there until my friend told me quietly and I tried to stay calm and continue talking. Whenever he walks past my roll call (basically everyday), instead of looking straight ahead to walk to his class, he would look into my roll call class and look at me. If we're still lining up as he walks past he would look still. It's not like 'I'm looking at him so that's why he's looking at me because it's not'. but many times I didn't look at him, my friends would tell me he was when he's gone. I honestly don't believe he has a crush on me, but some for my friends said there's a chance and now I'm just curious ALDA


I am wondering for my son…

My son, 17, who lives with his father, ex military in Georgia, just called me the other day and told me that not only is he gay, but he wants to start hormone treatment for transexual surgery. He also got himself a job under the pretense of being a girl. He dresses in female clothing only. He lies about his gender. He tells others he is a girl. He decided to drop out of school and wanting to go to Beauty School upon completion of his GED. He wants to move back down to Florida near me to live his lifestyle. I love my son regardless of his orientation, he is my child no matter what. However, I am not sure how to deal with this situation and how to give him the best support. Where I live, gay lifestyle is not very acceptable. Especially, when blatantly flaunted. I am worried about his safety when encountering others who rather bash gay lifestyle. My fiance already said, that he accepts and loves Alex regardless, but he will not tolerate blatant gay behavior in our house. His father although very nice to him can't wait for Alex to move out his house. Alex's brother seems very nice, too, as well as his step sister. His step brother is the typical jerk who enjoys cutting Alex down and drown him with humiliation and insults. Please give me advice on how to best support him. Thank you Lexi
