Something happened to me yesterday. I don't know if it's normal or I'm the one ovaryacting (overreacting). When I was in primary three my class teacher tells me daily that I'm one of the most beautiful girls in school. Everyday, he keeps calling me fine girl, fine girl, and some times my wife. There was a day during break time he called me and said, do you know you are a very pretty girl?
Honestly, I really didn't take these complement to heart. I was a kid who already knew she was beautiful and had no reason to doubt that. I got promoted to another class, and he also went back to school for his HND.
After completing primary school, I went to a boarding secondary school and get to go home during mid terms and holidays. I saw this teacher again and he said wow... You haven't changed, you are still pretty as ever. For a moment his words got into my head and I appreciated it with a little blush. He didn't change at all too.
We bump into each other sometimes on the street, and we exchanged pleasantries. I finished secondary, got admission into the university only for my teacher to see me during the break and said he will like to see and discuss some things with me.
This time around, I knew what he wanted to say. I gave him my address and he came by later in the evening to ask me out. He said "I've waited for a long time to say this to you. I love you!" I froze. Yes I knew he liked me but hearing it from him irritated me so much. I guess he should be about 15 years older than me.
I told him on the spot that I appreciate his patience but I can't do that because I see him as the same "UNCLE" back in primary school. He said I shouldn't think he wants to mess me up but that he has plans and future with me. I appreciated and told him no.
Has this ever happened to anyone?The whole thing is making me feel somehow.
