It depends on what you mean by “spend time.” You can absolutely be neighbours and friends. You can hang out and have barbecues and complain to each other about Mrs Next Door’s garbage bins.

But while you are her student, you cannot have sex with her. You cannot kiss her, speak romantic thoughts to her, fondle or embrace her, or in any other way have any kind of romantic relationship with her.

A teacher is in a position of authority over their students, so they cannot have romantic relationships with them. That can ruin their careers.

Heeeey so I know you're technically an adult and all, but as your teacher and the older person, she has a duty of care towards you. Allowing a romantic relationship to even become a thought is unethical on her part. It's not a good sign of who she is as a person.

Don’t let anything get beyond “normal” until you’re no longer her student.

Love will wait. It’s far better to be able to honestly say that you didn’t start your relationship until after she stopped teaching you. She could literally go to prison over this. It’s not a small thing.
