Ok, so I used the search function and got a feel for how these questions are usually greeted but I just can't help myself from asking another one.

If you had a student that you knew had a crush on you (googly eyes, hair twirling, lip biting, heaving bosoms etc.) and you (the professor) made lots of smily eye contact, gave her a lot of extra time and attention, had long rambling off topic conversations with her where you discussed your personal life, would that mean A. you had fuzzy feelings for her too (that you would never act on, of course) B. you enjoyed the ego stroking C. you genuinely did not realize this behavior was leading the student to think A or D. something else altogether.

I get that these questions are boring for you all so I am not taking off the table some detailed descriptions of my in class fantasies. After all I'm asking for free advice.

Hi-- I'd give up tenure, confess my congruent and burgeoning feelings for her, leave my spouse (signing over half of my TIAA-CREF of course, and one cat,) load up my old car with MREs, grab the 19-year old student by the hand, buy those cheap sleeping bags that are only good for summers, cash out my bank account, and head up into the Sangre de Christos with her.  On the way, we'd talk about rap music, tattoos (what I'd get,) why people suck, etc.  No question.

Yes, but I'd only run off with someone who could spell "you're" correctly.

Whatever your problem is, it's probably my fault.

I twirl my hair all the time and my eyes look kind of googly because my tinted contact lenses are to big for my irises. Sometimes I bite my lips because my lip gloss is tasty. I don't really know what to say about the bosoms thing except that, you know, if you have them it's kind of difficult to hide them. Does this mean everyone thinks I have a crush on them?

My advice - go immediately to the Scarlet Letter Thread, and write your fantasies in detail as though you actually fulfilled them.  Theraputic for you, entertaining for us.  A true win-win situation.

Do it well, though, otherwise it will end up being merely tedious and boring.

Damn. I was starting to think we could have had something.

As to the other post (sorry I don't know how to quote two things) I was under the impression it was pretty clear to professors when students were smitten.

Okay, I accept not being able to hide them, but how exactly does one heave them?

Ok done. I don't know if I did it well, it was pretty cliched, also its hard to write soft core porn when you know your grammar and punctuation is going to be ripped apart by a bunch of english professors. I don't know how therapeutic was but definitely fun to write it all down.

Wait, you don't have a crush on me? I'm...crushed.

Yes. Surely the ego is at least among the things said prof might enjoy having stroked.

-- comma splice x2
-- *it's
-- *soft-core
-- *are
-- *English
-- *it; it was

... and that's just in your description above.

Stop now. You are embarrassing yourself (and that terrible bit on the other thread is only making it worse). That you did not understand that Mouseman's suggestion was subtly indicative of the ways in which people here regard queries like yours -- hint: "boring" is not the right adjective -- shows that you are not nearly as adept at understanding adult communication and interaction as you think you are.

Some posters here will continue to play with you for awhile, but if you see this as anything other than cats toying with their prey, seeing how far they can extend their razor-sharp claws, you are naive. (Not that that would be surprising, given what you've already posted.)

For your sake, I hope you are just trolling.

Boring + bad writing = F.

If you want to have sex with your professor, ask, you'll either get a "yes" or "no." If you are a professor, get professional help to figure out how to think and live like an adult.
