How to deal with dating someone who’s still in high school, dating someone who goes to a different college, dating someone who goes to your rival school, to dating someone at your school that has a heavier course load than you.Imagine my surprise when no one was talking about the situation I was in. I have a summer job at a fast food place, and he happened to work there as well. While the age difference of 5 years didn’t affect us much, it was clear that a reoccurring theme in our relationship would be the fact that I was in college, and he was not. While he did take some community college classes, and his goal was to eventually go back to school- it wasn’t feasible at the time. And then folding it 18 times so it fits into a locker.

Not wasting your time on someone who was a dick to your friend.
