Thanks to Katie Trinder for sharing this toe-curling date:
“I think we’ve all had a teacher that we had a crush on at school, so imagine my delight when a few years after leaving, I bumped into one of my old ones who had been affectionately known as ‘nice bum’.
After a chat, a coffee and much hair flicking (by me) and gentle touches of the arm (him) he asked me out…
Delighted, I accepted! He phoned as promised to say he was taking me to the theatre to see Romeo and Juliet; what could be more romantic?
He picked me up at 7 and off we set. There were a couple of salient facts he’d omitted to tell me. We did indeed go to the theatre, however it was my old school theatre, where he still taught and it was a student production of Romeo and Juliet and I’m pretty sure the tickets were free!
From the moment we walked in, all I heard was ‘Is that your girlfriend sir?’, ‘Do you love her sir?’, ‘Are you going to marry her sir?’ And that was just from the other teachers!
I don’t think it was the fact he took me on a date to a school play that put me off, I think it was the fact at the end of the night as he leaned in for what he thought was going to be a good night kiss, he said ‘maybe one day I’ll let you touch my nice bum!'”.
Thanks Katie! How could you resist that offer…
