I am a 30-year-old guy. I don’t know if it’s good or bad but ever since the day I have come for my master’s studies, I have started liking my professor. Sometimes I feel she also treats me in a very special way, special than the rest of the students. We don’t have many gaps in age. I believe she is in her late 30’s.
