I just wanted a few takes on this...
I was a teaching assistant in a first year undergraduate chemistry lab last year at my university and I had around 90 students under my belt. I ran into one of my former students, a girl I definitely liked, just the other day. We sat down and talked for a little bit and throughout I could tell she was into me based on the 30+ second stares, the hair flicking, the dilated pupils, laughing at things I said and just the continuation of the discussion.
Despite this I was not comfortable asking for her number considering she was one of my former students. I sort of changed my mind after and added her on Facebook. She promptly accepted. I then messaged her and she promptly replied.
There is a part of me however that says this is not a good idea. I am 24 and she 20, so I don't think the age gap is too much of an issue however the circumstances are a little leery for me.
What would you think if one of your former teaching assistants started talking to you?
In reality I feel like this one depends solely on looks.

I'm a teaching assistant at my university too. This guy I had been talking to during the summer ended up taking one of my classes and I felt like I was doing something completely wrong whenever I went on a date with him, but I justified it with the fact that we'd been seeing each other before the class started. I was so happy when the class ended though! I say go for it!1
