No, it happened over a period of years rather than gushing out feelings. I never made the relationship more than it was or expected him to reciprocate. He did not say I couldn't talk about the feelings but it seemed to cause negative countertransference in the end.

Fixing the link from my post above: Therapist'''s reaction to erotic transference : psychotherapy

This is a conversation by therapists about negative feelings they have about clients who have erotic transference.
