Hello everyone

I find myself in a rather complicated and unexpected situation—I’ve fallen for my driving instructor.

To give you a bit of background, I’ve been in a steady relationship for four years with a boyfriend whom I truly love. However, recently, a new and confusing emotion has surfaced in my life. My driving instructor, who is nine years my senior, has unwittingly become the object of my affections. He is 31 years old, married, and a father, which makes the situation even more complex.

Our interactions are strictly professional. We are not even supposed to engage in personal conversations, but his presence has a palpable effect on me. Whenever he is close, I find myself becoming unusually nervous, to the point where my hands start sweating while gripping the steering wheel.

There was this one moment that particularly intensified my feelings. During a lesson, he decided to help me steer and placed his hands over mine. His touch was gentle yet warm, stirring emotions inside me that I struggled to keep to myself.

This unexpected infatuation has left me restless. I constantly find myself thinking about him, and I am considering the idea of changing instructors to escape these feelings. However, this decision is not without its dilemmas. He is highly regarded at the driving school, and many students wish to be taught by him due to his expertise.

The question I keep asking myself is, do I have any real chance of being with him? Not just in a fantastical sense, but in any conceivable reality. How should I navigate this emotional turmoil? Can anyone out there relate or offer some advice on how to handle such a delicate situation?

Thank you for listening to my story. I look forward to hearing your thoughts and suggestions.
