College kid dating highschool student
If you don't know what the boundaries are in your relationship, establish them before you end up in an uncomfortable situation. Remember that after high school, life changes dramatically.
Once you know your boundaries, demand that they be respected. Sometimes the strongest boundaries are mental, or emotional. That's not to say that you can't form a lasting relationship at a young age, it just means that you need to be ready for long distance and a whole new set of problems as an adult.
Usually, the best dating situations happen in the most unlikely of circumstances. Just like making gay friends, it's best to get out there and explore social or academic options on campus.
Taking on more work in an already stressful high school situation may sound like madness to some, but for others the payoff could be huge.
These suggestions can help you make the best out of your college or high school experience.
