Dating guy 18 years older than me
My high school was not the most “diverse and accepting” school out there (I mean how many high schools are), and my relationship quickly became the topic of discussion in group chats and gossip circles.To be fair my boyfriend was getting up and going to work, while guys my age were playing beer pong at house parties- it was different.
Meanwhile, I wanted to slide under the table and disappear. At the party, I flirted with the handsome man making a rum and coke in the kitchen, asking if he could whip one up for me, too.
The way I felt about my relationship was incomparable to anything else, and the opinions of others could not change that.
Not everyone will understand/approve of your relationship and guess what- it's not the end of the world.
High school is always a tough battle of figuring out who you are while also trying to keep the acceptance and approval of your peers.
It's crazy how one person can come into your life and change everything, including the way you view others.
