May edited May in College Life. Highschool senior currently dating a sophomore and going off to college next year college is about 3 hrs away, and no car. How hard is it, and any advice?
I'm in high school, but I know of a lot of couples who have stayed together despite the high school/college difference. See if the high schooler can come visit you, if they can drive that makes it easy, if not, try trains, that's how most college kids I know without cars get around. Not to worry, your relationship isn't over! Dating a high school girl when you're in college is like going to a free-beer kegger, and bringing along a bottled water, despite really, really wanting a beer, or two beers at the same time, maybe with another beer taping it. Aug 01, As someone who dated my high school sweetheart until the end of my second year of college, I know just how challenging it can be. No matter how much you want them to be, things just aren't the Author: Gabrielle Lafrank.
That might be a good way to maintain communications so that you don't drift apart although it still could happen. It is challenging to date someone in a completely different stage of their life than you, but it's not necessarily doomed at least, more doomed than any other relationship.

If you like each other, then there's this little thing called patience and she can exercise it while you do your thing and get that degree.

I'm a senior and my boyfriend's a junior I'm probably not taking my car to college with me, but I'll only be an hour and a half away XD Greyhound might end up being your best friend if you don't have a car. But, I mean, I know a couple that's been together since senior year of high school and they're now going to be seniors in college and they're still together.
May 30, It depends on the age difference, as other comments have emphasized. If the high school student is under eighteen, there are also legal considerations if dating has anything to do with sexual activity. For a university student, presumably over age. While Chelsea was a freshman in college, her boyfriend at the time was a senior in high school. Chelsea says that dating a younger guy while in high school is much different than dating a younger guy while in college. "In high school everyone is basically on the same level of maturity, but in college you gain so much independence," Chelsea. I am strictly against college guys dating lil gals in high school its not legal to date a minor and even though my daughter is in college now if a man in his 20's started having an interest in her when she was still in high tiendakiteboarding.com,her brothers are big guys who don't need anyone messing with their dear sister.
They go to colleges about three hours apart. So it is totally workable. AlixMRoz replies 5 threads Member.
It can work, but it's hard. The couples I know who are still together after their first year fought a lot.

My girlfriend is in 9th grade like me and she's really hot. How hard is it. CalDud replies threads Senior Member. If one or both of you decide to move away from home for college, going from seeing each other every day to a long-distance relationship is no easy task.
College is as much about finding yourself as it is about finding the right career path.
On the one hand, as you learn about who you are, you may decide that your current relationship doesn't complement you as well as it should, which is totally OK. On the other hand, you may be head-over-heels in love and as happy as ever with your relationship.
You do you, girl. Especially if you and your SO don't go to the same schools, you'll need to establish a sturdy foundation of trust between you two.
When this worry becomes paranoia or jealousy, though, it does more harm than good to your relationship. When you enter college, you'll start to see just how many options you have in life and not just in relationships.
There are countless paths to choose from, and at some point or another, you'll find yourself wondering what it's like to explore other options. Your partner is likely to feel the same, but this doesn't mean you need to break up.
It's totally normal to find other people attractive even if you're in a relationship. If you find yourself wanting to pursue something with someone other than your partner, though, it may be time to rethink things. At the same time, you may never find yourself in that situation. When summer seems forever away, it's easy to ignore. But once spring kicks in and the final stretch of the year draws near, the pressure of your impending long-distance relationship sets in. This seems really obvious, but it can be a difficult rule to stick to sometimes.
I have never participated in "floorcest," but I have friends who have dated people who live on their dorm floors. Their horror stories have become my cautionary tales. The awkward stares when you walk past one another in the hallway, and the dirty looks that get exchanged when one of you brings another person home for the night are not worth enduring.
Dating Your High School Boyfriend In College Can Be A Struggle & Here's Why
In college, money is an issue for everybody. Most of it is spent on textbooks, classes and takeout.
So, while your first few dates with someone new might be really nice, some of your dates will be much simpler, like sitting in the dorms while watching movies, for example. This isn't realistic in college.
Every date should be magical because of the person you're with. Your happiness shouldn't depend on whether or not your date took you to some fancy restaurant.
Just enjoy spending time with your guy. If you really like each other, you won't need the backdrop of a restaurant to enjoy one another's company.
