Inappropriate Crush

This is kind of embarassing but I have a major crush on a guy that is 24 years old than me. He is one of my professors. I know I cannot pursue it and I highly doubt he'd be interested but I cannot stop thinking about him. Of course I've had crushes before but I've never had one this extreme. I don't know if i'm attracted to him because of all the relationship problems I've had in the past wth dealing with immature boyfriends. He is not like a stud muffin. He's kind of awkward and goofy looking so I'm not sure what the appeal is.

 

Help?

Why do you think you wouldn't be able to pursue it?  Couldn't you let him know how you feel after you're done with his classes?  Is he married?

I think I wouldn't be able to pursue because I would assume it's unethical to get involved with a student and I don't know if he would even be attracted to me since I am 24 years younger. He is not married and as far as I know single. I just think it might be embarassing to let him know how I feel because i'm not sure if I'll ever have to take another class with him or not. And I don't know how to do it in a subtle way without seeming desperate.

My crush is over. I don't know what I was thinking but oh well that's a crush for you.
