Crushing on my thesis advisor - GAH! - October 20th 2009, 02:40 AM

Maybe it's the fact it's late at night and my higher-order thinking is off.
Bottom line: She's cute, in that "nerdy" sort of way.
I. I have a girlfriend, whom I couldn't be happier with.
II. My thesis advisor is at least ten years older than I am (ha ha)
III. This is, and will be, a mentor/mentee relationship.

I found her Facebook the other day and, for the briefest of moments, considered friending her, but considering that this is a professional relationship, didn't.

Do I have any intention of acting on this? No.
Did I feel like bitching a little? Yes.

Needed to vent a little.

Life is frustrating, but we both know you shouldn't leave the one you love for the one you like. [: I'm glad you know your limitations with her, though - most people get so head-over-heels "in like" with infatuation and whatnot, they just can't stop. So, way to be mature! I hope things continue to work out with your girlfriend.

It's only a crush. When you get to know her better, you'll see her more as a real person.

What just happened?

Agreed with the above two Just sit it out, you have a girlfriend it'll pass

How can one love themselves, when they love absolutely nothing?
Do something that is interesting. If it is not interesting, find out why it is not interesting.

I agree with the above. You have a girlfriend and the feeling will most likely pass. It's good that you aren't going to act on it as I wouldn't recommend it, you don't want to ruin the professional relationship you have or make it awkward and you don't want to mess things up with your girlfriend.
