I came back to my hometown after finishing my contract this summer and bumped into this "boy" in a pub.

I'm against any student/teacher relationships, current or former, period!

Not a teacher, but I don't see a problem with it now.

What bothers you more, the fact he is a former student or the age difference?

A little background information before you judge me: I met my current boyfriend when I was 23 and he was 16, it was my first teaching job and he was in my GCSE group.

At the time I saw this boy as what he was - a boy, yes a good looking boy who would be dashing when he was older, but far too young for me, plus I was aware of my professional status as a role model.

I taught at the school for a year before moving on, he went to college to carry on with the subject I taught him and did very well.I taught at another school for 4 years before moving abroad to teach in 2012.When we are together I do not think of him as my "ex-student" at all.His friends and some of mine are aware of the relationship, they are happy for us and think that we are well suited.I'd like to know what peoples honest opinions of such a relationship are. I find it strange that you viewed him as good looking, dashing, but too young at the time you were his teacher. We are not supposed to view our students as potential relationship material in the future.Obviously, something about this relationship bothers you or you wouldn't be asking for opinions here.
