Forbidden Love


With most professional settings in society, romantic encounters of any kind are prohibited. This is especially true for student-teacher relationships. All though there are strict guidelines concerning this issue in colleges across the nation, it doesn’t stop some people from pairing up within these institutions.

Violating the school code is one thing. Violating your morals is another. Humans have always had the tendency to look for ways to evolve, and as a college student, you’re especially vulnerable to new experiences because of the thrill they provide. But taking the risk of becoming sexually explicit with your professor and entering the territory of forbidden love is never a good idea. Someone always gets hurt or loses prestige in one way or another.

Here are 3 reasons why student-teacher relationships begin and continue:

Seeking Excitement From Deviant Behavior

Both individuals are vying for a relationship out of the ordinary, something sinful and laced with an alluring element of surprise. Despite wagering such high stakes, this relationship is nurtured by both individuals, because it provides a buzz they cannot get anywhere else.

Fulfill a Unique Emotional Need In One Another

They are drawn to each other because they are typically outcasts in one way or another in their peer group, feeling either eminent or inferior to their realm. This increases the gravitational pull between the two individuals, who soon find a comfort in each other.

The Snow-Ball Effect

After a situation escalates from harmless flirting to full-on sexual intercourse, it’s hard for the two people involved to stop. Sex brings too many feelings between a college professor and their student, making the relationship so complicated that no one wants to deal with it. Like neglecting a chore that you really hate doing, you avoid addressing the situation in full, and the relationship just continues, making it harder and harder to break from participating in forbidden love.

Student-teacher relationships stem from the rebellious nature surrounding it, form because of mutual emotional needs, and continue because both individuals purge their inhibitions. This union is not beneficial for either of you, neither casually nor exclusively. It’s based in the betrayal of trust in someone in authority that is so off putting about this type of connection. Prevention is the best method to ensure that no one’s feelings are hurt. So whether you’re a recipient or sender of the flirtatious gestures, think twice, because nothing good can come of this forbidden love.
