I just need someone’s opinions/ideas on this..
I am a 16 year old girl finishing my sophomore year of high school and the other day my friend was helping me study for finals. He is 19 and he just finished his junior year or college. We are exactly 2 1/2 years apart (his birthday is a week after my half birthday). Anyway, we took a study break and he kissed me. We both enjoyed it..but he said I couldn’t tell anyone. He said the age difference and the lifestyle differences at this point in our lives was too much. He told me it would be different if i was older..I understand completely because I was talking to a 20 year old earlier this year and we were both getting a lot of flak about it (I have known him for four years and people have never approved of us). But I know that most people think wanting to keep a relationship/hookup/whatever secret is a bad sign…we have known each other for four years though through a club we are both in and I had a crush on him the first two years. Last year we had a couple classes together (mixed classes though, we’re both very smart) and we started becoming closer. This year when he was at school we would talk and we started flirting more and my crush on him sort of came back… I just feel like because we have been close for a while I’m not just some girl to him, but it just confuses me because he doesn’t want anyone to know. I get that the age difference is a big part of it, but I just wanted to maybe hear someone else’s opinion without going against my word and telling all of my friends!
