Hv anyone ever developed feelings towards their supervisor or co-investigator?
If yes, how did you get over it? And how long did that take you? Would be good to learn about others' experiences. Thanks:(

I haven't but there's some good strategies here:
There might also be some relevant older posts on this forum - I think I remember some about this.

I hope my supervisor never works out my ID, but my answer is yes.

Nothing ever happened and I do not know her opinions but the feelings slowly faded for me. I think after a year or so, I got to know my supervisor better and started seeing her more as an older sister. I know that sounds weird and I wouldn't say I have lost all of my feelings towards my supervisor just the sexual ones. I think we are friends and I am happy with that. Not all feelings have to become sexual but can become a friendship based on mutual respect.

PS: I am not going into details
