"Sex Confessions" is a series featuring your naughtiest bedroom secrets and fantasies. Some will sound familiar, others may give you ideas, some will turn you on, and some are dark and twisted. You might want to sit down for this.
Today we've got a confession from Melinda* -- a 30-something divorced mom of a school-aged son -- who has it hot for teacher ... her child's teacher. It's so hot in fact they are having sex and weekend sleepovers when her son is with his dad. Things are getting serious and there is only a slight tinge of weirdness Melinda feels about the whole thing. It's her kid's teacher, after all. Will he show her child favoritism? What if things go bad? Will that affect how Mr. Lover* treats her son? There are so many questions and concerns, but Melinda thinks she has it all under control. Let's hear what she has to say.
I've been divorced from my son's father for quite a few years. My dating life ... well, I didn't have one. It's not easy to meet anyone when you really only have weekends to "look around." Whatever that means. I don't even know how to date. I met my ex when we were young, we were together a long time, had a fantastic kid, a nice life ... and then it was over. It was very hard for a long time, and dating anyone was the last thing on my mind. Friends did set me up with guys here and there but my kid came first and there were some men who didn't get that. So there went that chance.
Then I met Mr. Lover. Let's just call him that for the sake of this confession. Mr. Lover is my son's teacher who I met briefly last year at a school function. He wasn't my kid's teacher then but we chatted for a minute and there was definitely some chemistry there. But we were at a school event so it didn't feel like the time or place for boldness (or risk of being turned down) so I didn't ask for his number or to hang out sometime. He didn't either, which was kind of disappointing. This year Mr. Lover is my kid's teacher. Who we ran into everywhere we went that first month of school. The supermarket. The gas station. Even cars next to each other at the stop light once. I was always with my son and he would be happy to see him since I have one of those kids who loves school. We would chat but mostly about my son. Still each time I felt like I had a sparkle in my eye and my heart would skip.
Then I saw him out to dinner one weekend night when I was with my friends and he was with his. It was the perfect opportunity to talk more and that we did. So much so we ended up back at my house (my son was with his dad for the weekend, remember) and we are now, I guess you would call it, dating. Though it's still a secret from my son. I don't want him to know until I'm sure it's serious, which it seems to be heading in that direction fast.
My son is already a good student, and I discussed with Mr. Lover that I didn't want him to give my kid any special treatment. But we are falling in love and have even talked about waiting for the school year to end before we go "public" just so it's not weird for anyone ... mostly my son.
It's kind of exciting keeping this secret. But I also can't wait until we take the next step. Mr. Lover is divorced but doesn't have kids. I'm hoping that will change in the future.
What do you think of Melinda's confession? Is it wrong to have a relationship with your child's teacher if the situation presented itself? Do you think she's handling it in the best way?
