  1. Adjunct professor here. It’s usually pretty easy, unless they are very quiet students.

    Last year, there was a very outgoing, bubbly girl in one of my classes. It was pretty clear from the very first lecture that she had a crush on one of the guys. Him, I wasn’t sure about. He was a fairly quiet guy, but I suspected that perhaps the feeling was mutual and he was just a bit shy so I decided to give them a little helping hand. For the entire year I made sure that every group project or group activity in class, they were put together in the same group. A week before their final exam, they started dating. I like to think I had a little hand in that.

  2. It’s pretty easy to tell we that the girl is in love with the boy or vice versa.
    Tho in my opinion, if they don’t do anything mean or rude to one another we shouldn’t get involved or anything at all. Only case i get involved is if the student comes to me want to talk about it, since it’s their initiative and not mine.
