Dear Carol

Crush on teacher--help!

I’ve had this crazy crush on my teacher all year long. I know how sick it is, but I don’t know how to stop obsessing. It doesn’t help that we live on the same block.


Dear Wanna Stop Crushing,

Teacher crushes aren’t sick – they’re normal. If having a crush means never being late to class and doing all your homework, then, hey, there’s even a plus side. Teacher crushes spell trouble only if a teacher or student behaves inappropriately, or if you daydream all through class and flunk tests. Pay more attention to guys your age, especially the ones you known for years who may have grown three inches since you last looked.
