Is it normal to be this close to my teacher?

So I have been close with a teacher of mine since freshman year but we have definitely gotten closer. He used to be like a father figure to me and my classmates often refer to him as my dad. I go to a small school and we’re very similar so over the past four years it has spread outside my grade. But now he’s more like a friend to me. We tell eachother about our life problems, drama, insecurities, and anything that comes to mind. We can talk to eachother all day if given the opportunity and I value having him in my life. My classmates have begun to give me a hard time for being around him so much. Many of them have very vocally changed their opinion of our relationship from dad and daughter to daddy and daughter. So basically, is it normal to be close with my teacher, and is it okay to pursue this friendship after graduation?

  • It's not normal to me but if he has not been perverted to you in any way for so long, he will not start all of a sudden... sometimes friends can be found in all shapes and sizes

  • You need to be careful because if someone levels an accusation against him for an inappropriate relationship it may ruin him, even if he has done nothing wrong, thats just the time we live in right now.

    So keep your distance, to some degree, dont be with him alone either inside or outside of school. And when you graduate, do whatever you want. But be warned that if you develop a relationship there will always be jerkoffs that may spread rumors.

    Good luck.

  • It's not normal. It's okay I think to be friends with a teacher, but be careful. Even if he doesn't have any perverted motives, he could get in trouble for being so close to you. More and more stories like that are coming out now.

  • Ask if he wants to have sex with you? If he says yes, then you’re too close.

  • Idk your ages, but I'd tread carefully if I were you. He could be grooming you.

  • My freshman history teacher was also my basketball coach and I was a manager on his freshman football and baseball teams. He started fucking me my freshman year and it continued all through high school. We only stopped when I went to college in a different town. It was amazing! I’m 20 now and don’t regret a thing about it!
