Main Question or Discussion Point
I have this professor who teaches literature who I find myself immensely attracted to. Now to put this into context, I'm 28. So its not as if there is a big age differential between us (I believe she is in her mid-30s). Anyways, I'm thinking of asking her out at the end of the semester, as she will no longer be my teacher. I won't have any future classes with her either. My question is: is it unethical for me to ask her out? I certainly wouldn't want to put her in a position to threaten a career she obviously loves. From my perspective we would not be in any student/teacher capacity anymore, but I'm not sure if that would be a perspective her fellow academics or university faculty may share. I really like her, but I don't want to be selfish.
