If you suspect your T has has a crush on you, why not bring it up in session? At the very least, you will discover how reliable your perceptions are, and how well your T deals with intensely intimate stuff. These are good things to know, especially if the relationship develops in an extra-therapeutic direction. For instance, I doubt I could have a serious extra-analytic relationship with my T because he has trouble feeling happy and secure in a relationship that's totally equal. I discovered this the hard way (long story) but I'm glad I did because it really put the kibosh on the erotic transference-countertransference that was developing.
