Default I need some personal advice....

Ok, about 3 weeks ago i broke up with my girlfriend. She hurt me pretty bad by leading me on but I'm now over it. Now being back in the dating scene I have aquired a Co-worker that is quite atractive. We have gone on a few dates and have a couple more scheduled this week. Ok, sounds alright, right. Here'* the hitch, she'* 20, I'm 17. She also goes to collage on the 6th of sept. which is oh-by-the-way on the other side of the state. I'm really into this girl, and I know she really like me too but I'm/We're in a tough position. But I do have my parents support no matter what I do.....


Whatcha think guys and gals!!!!

Live for the moment and learn from the past. Sorry to hear about your last girl friend but these things happen.

I usually stay away from the relationship posts but consider you to be a good friend, I'm no playa but have been there done that. What you need is your answers and what feels right for you, outside help may not feel right and this is your live we're talking about.

Dating at work can be the problem, not the age difference. It'* all about how maturely you both deal with the ups and downs at work. If you think you can handle it, give it a go if you like her.

Nuthin' wrong with the age difference at all

follow your heart. I don't know about dating someone you work with because if things go badly then you have to see them at work. Could be a uncomfortable atmosphere. A wise man told me once "A dog doesn't **** close to where he eats" It is a good theory and I wish you the best of luck. Age doesn't mean anything. I once dated a 21 year old guy when I was 27. As long as you both are on the same maturity level things will be fine.
Good Luck!

The age difference really seems negligible... 3 years is not much at all.

As far as the distance, be honest with her... tell her that you would like to stay in the relationship while she'* at college, and see what her thoughts are. There may be a chance that she may want to leave her options open (as often happens when folks go off to college)... if that'* the case, don't take it personally but just consider the stage she'* at in life. If you do decide to stick it out and give the "long-distance" thing a try, just understand that it takes a lot of work.

Good luck with whatever happens!

My opinion is to just stay friends with here. Get to know here better. Stay in touch while she is away. If things still go well after all of that then it was meant to be. If not, she wasnt the one in the first place. She should be able to understand that. I wouldnt want to rush into anything. Damn, did I just say this?
