I'm 15 and in love with my principal. He's around 30. I know it's not a crush; I joined this school last year and I just liked him last year; I tried to forget him, but my love for him just keeps increasing. All the other girls in my class also like him, but I don't understand why I love him so much. Also, I'moving to another school after this academic year.

hi again. well of course this is your choice, but know that he is very very likely to tell you he is not able nor does he wish to reciprocate. Please prepare yourself for this, and indeed if he were to give any other impression he would be behaving not just inappropriately but actually abusing his position.

i have a 15 year old daughter, and I am worried for you that you will be ok if you decide to tell him how you feel and he tells you kindly this isn't going to be returned, so please make sure you have support around you that you trust x

Thanks for responding, but this isn't what I was actually seeking... I really love him, it's just that I don't have enough courage to tell him. But I am planning to tell him when I leave the school. I will obviously tell him directly.

Sweetheart there isn't anything anyone can say to you that will make this better for a girl your age. This feeling is immense and intense. I don't think there's a woman anywhere who can't relate to what your feeling right now when we were your age.

I'm sure you know there is no way it can or should be reciprocated by him, and he will not view you in this way, nor should he in his position.

Still you at left with over whelming emotions for him. 15 year old girls emotions are strong! All I or any of the women who have gone through what you are right now at 15 is it subsides.... Is natural, and you won't feel like this for ever- you wont even feel like it for long in the grand scheme of life that Is ahead of you, though I know that isn't how you think right now.

Trust me, when you are older, this will make you smile and remember fondly....x

God Bless you ,you sweet soul. How charming to be in love with your principal and how lovely that you all feel the same way. If only he were a pop star then you could go and watch him in concert on your weekends but he'sjust an ordinary person, in an ordinary life with ordinary wife and children. When you move onto anew school you will meet new people..maybe even a real boy of about your own age who you can play video games with and talk to and smile at and joke and laugh, butfor now you are safe because your wonderful headteacher has occupied a little space in yourheart so that you are getting a little place in your head where you can think thoughts of future love and happiness. Godbless you, you sound absutely delightful, stay safe until you have a bit more time to grow up but dont hurry things, just find hobbies and things to keep you entertained because you are not quite ready for any kind of romance but when you do find a boy of your own age i hope he has some of the qualities of your headteacher that you admire so much.You will make a very good adult when you are older..enjoy being 15 for now

It may be love yes, BUT he's 30 AND your principal. It's ok to have feelings for him but NOTHING will and must ever come out of it as it is illegal. You're underage and it's unlikely he'll risk his career and end up behind bars in order to date you. If that's what you're hoping it'll never happen. Sorry to say that.

I had crushes on teachers at school but knew it would never get anywhere. It is a good thing you're moving schools. Like I say having feelings for him is ok, just like you would a like a male celebrity aged 30 but nothing can or will likely come out of it.
