    I danced at a club with one of my former students (9 years difference)
    when I found out she was a former student it was kind of creepy

    I had a friend, that dating & marring a former student, He lost his job and his ex wife shot him (he did not die) other than that he is happily married and now retired and his wife is only in her 40s

    Heck when I first started teaching I had a student with a crush on me I was 22 she was 18, at the time I thought it was terrible, but look at it today I am 58 she is 54

    BTW doing a little math many of you have told us your age LOL

    Honestly, every teacher on here could give you advice and none of it would matter a bit unless one of us is THE teacher. Having said that, I'll still offer up some advice.

    Maybe it would be best to get to know her as a person before you decide whether or not it is something you truly want to pursue. She may be every bit as extraordinary as you remember, but there is also the chance that the "teacher" side of her is much different than the "home" side of her.
    Either way, I wish you the best.
