On the other hand, Carter an English teacher, former nerd and Yale professor also has his own fair shares of insecurities and setbacks. Ever since he was in high school, Carter has always had a huge crush on Mac. However, due to his reserved nature, Cater has never said anything to Mac. Seeing Mac once again reignites the old spark that Carter once harbored in his heart. Nonetheless, due to the fact that Carter has been recently burned with an ex-girlfriend, he also begins to become a little bit suspicious of the new feelings that he is experiencing.
