Im familiar with those feelings of attraction! I was very attracted to my therapist too (I still think hes attractive, but Ive finished therapy now).

The ethical prohibition on relationships between therapists and clients can feel harsh and unfair and paternalistic. But its necessary to prevent clients from getting seriously hurt. If therapy leads to romantic or sexual contact between the therapist and the client, it usually ends in tears because there are all sorts of complicated dynamics going on in therapy (like transference).

Can you keep talking about it with your T? Its a horrible feeling to be so attracted with no hope of reciprocation, but it should get easier if you can talk it through.
