July 28, PM (UTC). Dear Cary,. I am a first-year high school teacher. This is incredibly difficult to place down into words because of the shameful nature.

By secret-name , October 30, in The Lobby. I’ve been a member of this forum for a little while but have created this “secret-name” in an attempt to remain even more anonymous about this particularly sensitive subject. I’m dating a former undergrad professor. I spent my last semester and part of the summer working in his lab to gain experience for my grad applications.

We started dating in July two months after my graduation – nothing happened before then, not even discussion of dating and plan to continue dating while I am in grad school. We have tried to keep the relationship as covert as possible and very few people from my undergrad institute know about it. That said, we are both reluctant to lie about it and eventually plan to be a little more open. I will probably move to a new, but nearby town for grad school.

He’s a good friend, where conversation for hours on end is effortless, with a nice blend of serious discussion, pure silliness, and getting to consistently know more about each other personally. I’m very, very much interested in him.

He has a live-in girlfriend of several years. While I’ve met her a few times and she’s nice as can be, there are plenty of things he’s said, and I’ve noticed, that boggle my mind why they’re together other than the inconvenience of change from different opinions about marriage, kids, religion, interests, and much more. Nothing between the former prof and I has ever moved past friendship, nor has there been any discussion of “more.

I am thinking of saying something, but not sure how. I’d hate to be thought of as “the other woman” but I would like to communicate a bit of how I’m feeling.
