I teach a lot of students, and one in California is 14 years old. She is a very promising pupil and plans to move here for finishing school in four years and then we'll become writing partners. We talk often and she calls me her brother and I refer to her as a sister and I love her as one. However, last night she admitted to me that she has romantic feelings for me.

Now, she's a very charming girl, lovely, cute ect. ect. ect. The problem is that 1) she's far too young 2) I don't want a relationship at all right now, even if it was legal. 3) I don't particularly care to complicate our future partnership.

Right now, I'm just planning on talking to her about it and explaining that though I have the best intentions, I can't give her a relationship. Any other ideas?
