This man had been one of the biggest influences on my thought and education while at university — he had my utmost respect as a scholar.But my experience with him was far from the glamorized narrative often found in people’s minds.It was the May of my sophomore year of college, and I had developed a friendship with one of the graduate students who lived in my dorm as an academic advisor and quasi-authority figure.We became friends because we both were forced to take lunch at due to afternoon classes and shared vaguely similar academic interests.He eventually friended me on Facebook, which I thought was a little strange, but brushed off because I assumed he was gay due to his plethora of vibrant, floral shirts and the gulf of a decade that separated us in age.

We both liked bike riding, so that was an easy way to break the ice. I got to know him the way most students get to know their professors — by taking one of his classes.The first time I went into his office, we ended up chatting more about the town I’m from, which is where he did his graduate work, than the actual course material.It felt good to have someone to talk to who knew where I came from.I remember thinking he was funny, kind, and attractive. I don’t find that many people attractive to begin with, but as a student, I felt particularly guilt-ridden about attraction to a teacher.
